    Theoretically now you have more than $100.00 available to spend on other things. I used to cringe at used shoes also but remembered I used to wear "public" bowling shoes on the rare occasions I went bowling, and never had any bad effects on my feet. It's not good to buy shoes that have been heavily worn because they're molded to the feet of the previous owner, and any padding is probably compressed and useless, but many people buy shoes, take them home and decide they don't fit, so donate them to places like Value Village. The shoes are practically new. Lysol spray not only kills cooties but gives you peace of mind. Wear the boots in good health doing worthwhile things.

    I know people who used to find serious, money makers at VV back in the day. Never bought daily boots/shoes there, but plenty of jeans for $1.99

    Yeah, this is only the 2nd pair of shoes I've ever bought there, but I get chino's, jeans, pull over sweaters. I don't wear my suit much anymore but I've got some expensive ties there before for 3 or 4 bux. The staff doesn't know any brand names except the shit popular with wiggers, J Crew, etc. so an $80 Italian tie will be 3 bux, lol. They have no idea what is quality and what is not.

    I searched the Ariat website but couldn't find this particular model of boot. Lots of goofy faux-cowboy work boots though, lol. Here they are, my $7.50 Value Village score on half price Tuesday.

    I like 'em. Very comfortable.

    Good glovebox material. I've never bothered with the smaller MaGa-Lites, but the full size hippy beater are well above par.

    The D-cell Maglites are good brainbusters. Just wrap the handle in some duct tape and swing away.:lol:

    Why would you buy a small mag-lite with a xenon bulb?

    I needed a new flashlight for my tool drawer. No sense in getting a larger one.

    Nothing wrong with that for your dashbox light, but if they offer an LED replacement bulb, get that. Especially on a smaller light, your battery life will be exponentially longer and the LED bulb never burns out. The fact that they still use traditional bulb designs and the deal with Duracell packaging their wares with the light leaves little doubt that they want you to burn through batteries and bulbs. I think that's what Ras was getting at.

    I still can't shake the youthful memories of flashlights that died after an hour or two, and it still surprises me every time that a tiny little 3-AAA battery flashlight with half a dozen or so LEDs is still going strong in the morning after I fall asleep reading in the tent with it the night before.

    Just keep in mind that a flashlight becomes a likely deadly weapon the moment you hit somebody with it, and Mag-Lite is already a name well known across America as the light that put the lights out for Rodney King, Malice Green and many other worthless pavement apes. It also does more damage than a proper nightstick, though the most likely risk to you is of the nigger hitting his head when he falls.

    Any of you guys have firsthand experience with those palm-sized "self defense flashlights"? A foaf flashed me quickly one time at night and it would have cost me a few seconds of reaction time if it was a fight or mugging. They also tend to have real sharp edges to gash with.

    144 grams. Not exactly a light weight EDC knife. Built more for combat/tactical use.

    Maybe this shot has more appeal. I'm no great drinker but this Jim Beam has a wonderful taste.
