First off, http://www.uscav.com (US Cavalry) is a big fucking ripoff. I bought some kneepads from them. Everything there is overpriced. I payed $20 before taxes and shipping when I should have only paid $12 at the max. Oh well. Lesson learned.

On the other hand, I've bought some Barska Gladiator 10-30x50 binoculars. Now if only I could figure out how to use that damned "strap"... Anyway they cost me only $30 so that's a pretty good bargain considering KMart and Sears sell them for around $60.

What sucks is that my job is moving me out of the Citigroup building which means I won't be able to use the binocs from the top floor of a skyscraper that's facing the ocean/New Jersey. Or will I? Let's hope they won't move back into the field.

I keep forgetting to call the NYC licenses and permits division to ask about getting a rifle/shotgun license. Oh well.

In other news - I don't have anything planned for the weekend (except cleaning up my room). It shall be interesting to see what I'll do.

US Cav is pretty ridiculous... the general-issue kinda stuff like goggles and pads and vests and what not you can find a lot cheaper at places like cheaperthandirt.com or flyingtigerssurplus.com

cheaperthandirt rocks.
I can't beleive you need a license for shotguns and rifles in NYC.
Sounds like a serious 2nd amendment violation to me.

I just hope it's not overpriced with a ridiculuous waiting period to get one. And NY state has its own version of the AWB which sucks major moosecock. Now, if I lived outside of NYC, I could own a rifle(s) and/or shotgun(s) without a hassle but, as it is, I don't.
