    CLOSED: Interested In Poncho Liner Group Buy?

    I am curious if anyone wants to go in on a group buy of military poncho liners? I did some preliminary research and found some government auction sites that sell surplus gear.

    A bin of poncho liners, roughly 100 liners per bin, is around $150 (bid). They have some bins with around 150 liners, making each poncho liner less than $2/ea. I've seen similar bins at my local army surplus store and know that each bin has a mix of like-new and used liners.

    Since this is a government site, the sell is done by auction, and it may even be on-site. I'm not as familiar with the process, for example, can we put in lower bids and get a bin of ponchos for less? Is there anyone on forum who knows more about this process?

    Even at a few dollars a poncho liner, I would buy up several and give them away as summer quilts!

    Very interested but I don't have a pay pal account.

    That's a heck of a lot better deal than $35 at the PX...

    You have to pick up where ever the item is located. I haven't used my account in years. They take the payment out of the account you register with right after the auction.

    I'd be interested in a GI woobie -- or two or three -- at a 90%+ discount. I'm not far from Ft. Lewis and the Navy bases on Puget Sound and Hood Canal.

    How much do they usually cost at an army surplus store? If it is a good discount, I'd be in for 2 or 3.
    oldgringo's reply to my worrying about owning extra hammocks:

    How many pairs of underwear do you own? Do you refer to them as "extras", simply because you're not wearing all of them as we speak?
