    For those Folks just starting out or like so many in this Country where money is a object, its a place to look. I'm not going to run the products down, others here that promote their wares and those of others can do that. Ladies have a huge selection, and with fuel, food, and just about everything you look at increasing in price it's something to consider. When money is no object there are Vendors here (approved) that will be more than happy to make you anything you need at a price. For those that have to balance a checkbook Ebay should not be overlooked. I ordered some Cavalry Boots (150.00)-six weeks later I had them. I was happy with the quality and compared with the ones I give 250.00 for I noticed little difference. I bought them as back-up or loaners. You found a cup that your happy with, for 10 dollars. I found a pair of boots. I'm sure others here have found things as well. Need to watch the original stuff, either the Vendor does not know if it's real or they may just be trying to pass-off new as old. It's always about the money, Buyer Beware. The Forum and Ebay have that much in common.

    The words "collapsable" and "smashing" should never be used in the same sentence!

    Phrasing is everything, isn't it? Kinda like the chap with the "leaving the hobby" sale going on. He's selling a haversack, apparently contents and all: "Has seen its fair share of use, and shows it, but has a lot left in it." Makes you wonder . . .

    I like that phrase! That's me. Comedian Ron White's grandfather said Ron "had a lot of quit in him."
