Americans Are Frantically Buying Military Gear Before the Election
well yes, there is that.

excerpt not really required, headline says it all. the general public has done a 180 on firearms, prepping etc.

A retail chain called 5.11 Tactical, which traces its roots to a friend of President Donald Trump’s adult sons, is even trying to turn the survivalist look into a fashionable national brand. It’s racking up annual sales of almost $400 million with stores in places including Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the U.S. Army’s Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. Across the country, gun and ammunition sales have surged...

They've been around for years, whether they know one of Trump's kids or not.

And they make great products in my experience.

Good fit, good materials, very durable. And unless you're going for a tactical look by wearing boots, pants, shirt, etc. they don't really stand out.

Yep I have about $2k of 5:11 gear this year!

Still waiting for some items to arrive BO or never coming!
Same with condor gear, optics planet and others out of stock or BO.
Midway let's you shop by items in stock only!

So many things are like 8-12 weeks maybe to ship.

Re: Americans Are Frantically Buying Military Gear Before the Election
I think it's wise to buy everything you can conceive of and afford and LEARN HOW TO MAKE a lot of things like ammo. This election is not going to settle anything. If Biden wins, it's an absolute disaster for humanity and half the population will not accept it. I don't know what we'll do but I think we'll be forced into a fight.

If Trump wins, again, half the pop won't accept it and they WILL fight because....it's what they do.

We have to be prepared either way. The Cabal is not going down without a fight and I don't know if Trump, even if elected, has the forces to arrest these people and do what needs to be done. For ex, Joe Biden should have been taken off that stage in handcuffs last night, he should NOT be running for POTUS at all. Nor should Harris who is LITERALLY one of his partners in crime.

How's the weather in Beijing today?

Most of the soldiers, along with the cops, will probably do WHAT THEY"RE TOLD, which will be to attack citizens. I hope I'm wrong, but they've been through intensive brain washing. On the other hand, we have a lot of vets on our side with experience, knowledge and belief in defending the US and the Constitution.

Don't forget people, the real enemy here is not primarily the LEFT, it is COMMUNIST CHINA & THE GLOBALISTS which use our stupid Leftists as their tools.

Re: Americans Are Frantically Buying Military Gear Before the Election
I love 511 tactical! I have several pieces I got there, including a 511 Tactical shirt. I buy Christmas presents for my sons there.

As far as the rush to buy guns and military equipment, that's just the people that were not properly prepared before. I think most of us on GLP are perfectly happy with the preps we already have. I'm a little nervous about all the first time gun buyers. Most of them have no safety training at all. I don't care that they can't hit the broad side of a barn, but they could accidentally hit me, or someone I love.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

The object of prepping is to have it before you need it.

Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

They never intended to be an LEO or mil clothing company, that is until cops started wearing their pants in droves years ago. Then they rebranded their company as their climbing pants didn't sell initially. 5.11 refers to the degree and difficulty of a climbing wall but they kept hat part.

The state has a piece of equipment at the end of my road for clearing trees.

It looks like a backhoe, except at the end of the arm there is a huge buzz saw.

Everyday when I get home, I want to take it and put it in my shed in case I need it later.

Can you imagine? I could clear a path.

Yepper - I agree.

Those who are prepared have been prepped for at least 10 years. I have plenty of ammo and plenty of guns. My Dad passed away in 2012 and left me a Hi-Point piece-of-shit 9mm semi-auto. I sold it, but kept all his 9mm rounds. Point is, I might buy a 9mm revolver just because I have so many rounds for it, but I certainly don't need it - so no rush.

I also would like a tactical, bullet-resistant vest. There are some good ones on eBay for under $300. We'll see. I don't live in a city and everywhere I go it's Trump signs, so that would mostly be a "fun" purchase.

Like another poster said above, if it comes to that then there will be gear all over the streets.

And I totally agree about the lack of training from first-time gun buyers/users! I grew up with guns. Had a BB gun until I was about 8 years old. Then I got my first .22 pump rifle. When I was 14 I got my first 30-30 lever action rifle for deer hunting. Then a .243, then a 30.06. Etc.

And to this day, with rifle and pistol safety engrained in my memory, I still make a conscious effort to respect gun safety. Know when your gun is loaded. Know where to point your gun, loaded or not, know how to use the safety, etc.

A perfect example of the lack of training is the Fuck You Coalition, or whatever it's called, who have shot at least two of their own members so far this year.
