View Full Version : Where to buy MREs
Where is the best place (read cheapest) place to buy MREs? Hurricane season has started, and I am making provisions for two weeks w/o power or water. Twenty years ago, I had three cases of Cs, but they're long gone. They made very attractive gifts for guys who were vets.
Used to be able to get them at the Commisary, eBay has them sometimes good prices. Best is make contacts with troops and buy their field leftovers. I used to have a bunch I wouldn't take with me, never seemed to eat as much in the field. But selling them to pawn and surplus stores was a rip-off.
I agree with the eBay idea. I have seen plenty of them on there and they go for a decent price. They also seem to have the best selection, including some of the second generation ones like Chicken Ala King, Meatballs with Beef & Rice in Spicey Tomato Sauce and so on.
Of course don't forget to stock up on the Ramen and canned squeeze cheese to go with those MRE's. :eek:
If your still looking I have about a case in the garage, they are 2 years old. PM me if your interested.
