Good source for retired reserves? Can't Post

Looking to purchase a reserve for decorative purposes. What's a good source for retired reserves or military squares? I have not had much success on ebay, dz.com or bj.com. Anyone know of any large buyers of the military gear when they $hit can their gear?

Demilled stuff on ebay all the time. Don't know what you can't find. There are both round and ram air military canopies on ebay right now for under $100, some under $50. They don't get much cheaper. Or go to http://www.govliquidation.com/ and type in parachute.

You can by them by the pallet.Wink

Amazingly I just did and there aren't any current auctions.Blush There will be soon.

Would prefer squares, but I'm not at all opposed to rounds.

There are usually plenty of MC-4 mains on ebay for decent prices.... Few with lines removed you could get cheap. Do you have a local surplus shop? I find T-10's, and MC-1C's all the time for $30 lines removed. I even found a brand new in the bag MC-4 for $98 at my local surplus shop..... of course I asked for more and they didnt have any as they had no clue what it was. Ive also found plenty of stuff on craigslist.
