    As this season winds down, what new gear is worth it, what gear is failing.....?

    Got this Drake jacket for $49. Thought it was just a pullover. I was surprised it was waterproof and breathable. Worn a bunch in pouring rain including yesterday’s typhoon and it kept me dry. Was shocked.

    1970 some odd 870 I started with got put back into use. Sucker still keeps on ticking.

    Nothing but good things to say about target brand wet wipes. Almost through my second package.

    Like the new pulsator with the built in battery too

    You might want to consider Metamucil...definitely cuts down on number of wipes per event. I just opened up my second pack of wipes up on the levee yesterday and the season is near over.

    1st post for me. I picked up a beretta a400 xtreme plus about a month and a half ago. So far it’s a great gun. Seems to shoot straight. Also got some frog togg amphibious waders . Just noticed the stiichng coming undone on my left knee yesterday, but otherwise not bad.

    I upgraded from the wet wipes to Antibacterial hand wipes from Costco. Moisturizes with Aloe and Kills 99.99% of germs with a nice citrus scent in case I met up with you at Casa Lupe after a hunt. Burns like hell for a few minutes but pays off in end ... you might think I am kidding but you'd be wrong.

    Warning for external use only so keep that in mind ...

    Not recommended for liberals or millennials ... no offense just don't want anyone to hurt themselves

    aw
