1982 Beef Stew (Menu #5)

The idea of having all of these old MREs that I have yet to review has been gnawing at me. Thank you, I will be back next week. ;) I think it's time I dig in and find an old brown bag MRE that has yet to have its history preserved. And so it was I came such a thing! For your viewing and reading plea...

Re: Standard US MREs produced by "Rafco Freeze Dry"?

Thanks for the responses. I ordered three cases of early 90s MREs, two from Rafco (with one being labeled as Right Away Foods), and one from So-Pack-Co. I might open one Rafco case and the So-Pack-Co case and do some reviews on the ones that haven't been reviewed yet. I really hate to open up someth...

Standard US MREs produced by "Rafco Freeze Dry"?

Hi all, Recently, I ordered a case of old US MREs here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/262647288640?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT If you look at the pics, it says it was produced by Rafco Freeze Dry, Inc. You'd think this would lead one to assume that these are RCWs or LRPs, bu...

Re: Case of MCWs for $65, is it worth it?

Sorry everyone, I'm all out for now. Seems like they're super popular around these parts! I'll try to contact the guy who sold them to me to see if he'd be interested in selling more. He had about 100 cases of MCWs stocked up in his garage, I really wonder where he got them all from - I didn't even ...

Re: Question: Shipping MRE Cases

Thanks for the input all. If I ever do find myself in hot water over this, I can always play a semantics game and remind the sue happy jerks at large that it does say "Commercial Resale Is Unlawful". ;)

Re: Case of MCWs for $65, is it worth it?

Buy all of them. I have never seem them that low before since they aren't too common in the market. They will provide value pieces on trade on this forum. I gave it some thought and decided to do just that. He had quite a few and I'm hoping to go back and get some more. I'm just so excited to actua...

Question: Shipping MRE Cases

Hi all, Is it a good idea to ship MRE cases as they are? I'm a bit afraid of doing this, especially through USPS because of the "Government Property, resale is unlawful" notice. This may lead them to confiscate the case. How do you all usually go about doing this? I suppose I could ship the case in ...

Re: Case of MCWs for $65, is it worth it?

You buy all 5 then ship 3 to me. Just a thought. It most certainly is a thought indeed! However, I don't think I will break even. I would be willing to buy one case with you. Provided they are still in the original sealed case. PM if you are willing to do that. I'm not sure yet. But if they are, I ...

Case of MCWs for $65, is it worth it?

Hi all, I know someone who is selling cases of modern MCWs (Meal, Cold Weather) from 2013 for $65 per case. And he has five cases. If you were in my shoes, would you just buy one case for $65 or buy all five of them for $325? I'm having a tough time making this decision for myself because I know the...

Fellow member rabidwolf sent me some HDRs. Shipping was fast and he was easy to communicate with. :D
