Ok guys and gals..

I am looking to purchase some army surplus items.. in bulk, from auction.

These auctions are held at military bases across the United States.. so basically, if you live near a army base, I could use your help.

When and if I win an auction, I will have 72 hours to pick up the merchandise.. sometimes, in case of vehicles for example.. sometimes people are allowed to inspect the lots before actual bidding begins..

I am looking for people who would be able to help me out. If need be to go and inspect the items and report to me their condition before bidding begins, and mostly to be able to go to the base, and pick up any of the lots I might win at auction..

I live in Nebraska.. I won't be able to pick up items in say North Carolina or Ohio I would need people in different locations who would be willing to pick up said items, and then help me ship them to Nebraska...

I am by no means asking people just to do this for me with no compensation... I will also pay expenses to the people who are doing the leg work that I am not able to do.. Cash always talks, but also consider that If I pick up a lot of BDU;s then I would be willing to defer some of my cost by giving you a couple sets of BDUS, or If I get a lot of alice packs.. then by all means.. help yourself to a alice pack.. of course all shipping expenses will be covered by me... I am just saying if you would want some gear instead for your leg work, then I am open to that..

I am proposing this here because I know we can never have enough gear, or barter items.. and If you are willing to scratch my back, then I will scratch yours... I am not looking to sell items on here or make any money from this site... YET.. I will talk to Kev about becoming a supporting member if this all pans out.. right now I am just trying to recruit some help..

Thanks for your time.. feel free to PM or email me..

I am 45 minutes form Ft. Stewart. We have alot of friends stationed there. We have cook-outs and campouts quite regularly that are attended by different people. Give the troops something to do on weekends and holidays mainly even if its only to kick back and watch some games (go dawgs). In return, we get alot of useful gifts. I would highly recommend that you befriend a soldier. Don't use them, befriend them!

i am in vegas but generally the auctions have very little in the way of good stuff coming out of nellis. reno usually has massive amounts of computer stuff at the auctions though.

http://www.govliquidation.com/

sometimes you can pick up lots like this
http://cgi.govliquidation.com/auction/view?auctionId=1906221
fired brass for around the raw material cost sometimes. and alot of the time they dont require you to mutilate it so you can reload it. just dont plan on reloading with one of the 60k pound lots of fired brass........

my problem is none of the good stuff tends to be close to me...

I'm one hour from Fort Drum. I would be willing to head up there. If you're looking at governmentliquidation.com I live close to 2 of the sites where they have auctions.
