instead of looking for real tactical gear on the internet, might I suggest finding a local army surplus store or a flea market. If you go to the former, you have a decent chance of finding good deals because, generally speaking, army surplus stores are locally owned, not huge franchised businesses. This means you can form good, personal relationships with the staff and they would be more likely to make you good deals. And for the latter, you never know what you might find at flea markets. Just google 'flea markets' near where you live and go hunting. As I said, you never know what you will find at flea markets. Once I found a small silver kettle that seemed worthless. It was only $3.50 so I bought it, took it home and used some silver polish and it looked good as new. I then turned around and sold it at another flea market for almost $40! Flea markets are great resources for stuff to sell. Just go to one and you might walk out with things that you didn't even go in to buy. Sorry this has been such a long post, but I hope it helps you!
