    I like that CMX760. Be easy to hide it in the center console or under the dash and only have the hand unit. But its also twice the price of my PRO520XL. The reviews on it leave a lot to be desired though

    The concealable factor was a big :tup: for me. But that's about the only plus about it IMO over the basic uniden and cobra units.

    Imagine the price tag if it was advertised as an "overland" CB. It's already close to that price level.:bananadead:

    GovPlanet can be a bad influence sometimes......:anonymous::spending:

    pa120pallets.jpg

    Crazy enough, between myself and friends, we could actually use a few more than the 70 I won at auction (all spoken for).....

    :annoyed::crazy:

    Too bad they are empty and don't actually contain what they were originally designed for......:(

    I'll think about it. I might be needing a rear end tho. Time to switch to 4.30 I guess.

    It started out looking to see if any LMTVs were available for auction locally (nope). Then M1101/02 trailers (nope). MKT trailer? OOooo, that's neat! No burners? Fuck that (it sold for $1,500.) . Talk about group camp cooking though!

    Then I saw a pallet of ammo cans. Hmmmm, that's interesting! $5 starting bid?? What the hell. A couple of hundred dollars later, I have two pallets of ammo cans waiting for me to pick them up tomorrow.

    You think? Are you drunk shopping? Remember on click the purchase button once. It counts each button click as a purchase.

    There's some cool stuff that auctions there. Ammo cans pop up every other month or so if you do need more. (Sometimes more frequently)

    Some buddies and I almost won an auction for 40 tons of spent 556 casings. Was winning till the last like 30 minutes when a recycler got involved. Which was probably a good thing as we were way in over our heads lol. Would have made a killing if we had won though

    FIFY. I can't really say my bad luck is contagious, it really just seems to be normal at this point. If things were going too good, I'd probably be more worried.
