    My dad and I used to set up at the gun show every now and then and sell surplus clothes and equipment. But then they started requiring sellers to get a tax number, and my dad never got one because he hates filling out paperwork.
    My dad said if I could get decent prices for the stuff he would give me a cut. Gave me responsibility of negotiating also.

    Just spent the last several hours counting and organizing items.
    Have over 60 pictures

    Am working on the monstrous description for items now. And am going to post a thread in the yardsale.

    Ammos not for sale
    I just took pictures of the m1 and ammo for fun. The ammo was purchased through cmp. 1970s production. Bought a full crate of it.

    2 qt canteen and pouch $5 (possibly used)
    Canteen and pouch $5 (new)
    Canteen cup $1.50
    Shovel in either canvas or rubber sheath $15. (Some rust)
    NIB goggles $15

    Shipping I will charge actual cost. No handling

    Ever seen the stove access you can get that turns the cup into the pot? I dont have one for sale but own one myself. Very handy. All it is is a piece of metal that elevates the cup. Then you can get butane tablets at your local surplus store and put them under it.

    Just got finished making my thread in the yardsale

    Those are Alice packs. They are the backpacks used by the military.
    Just looked at one. Appears you could put atleast 2 or 3 handgun cases in it.
    And each of the 3 pouches could hold 4 or 5 ar mags
