The price of the Goulash isn't a problem, since I'm happy to wait a year or so until they are all over the place for $6.

Steve just put out a new video reviewing it, and it doesn't look very good anyway.
And this is how supply / demand free market economics work. I actually kinda agree with you based on his review, the military seems to be continuing to remove items and ingredients from MRE's that I and most others considered staples in the past. IIRC in his ration review they did not even include coffee and he was saying that coco power would be removed in the near future. That is worse that taking the salt off of the crackers

Has to be better than what it replaced. Lol
I remember thinking this past spring when I chose the Asian Beef Strips out on the lake, man they couldn’t of chosen a better name then gave you a bag of goo. Like an oxymoron.
I’ve eaten it before, but that last one was all sauce and no beef strip. :mrgreen:

This guy: https://www.ebay.com/itm/113871605177
The only shocker is that he isn't charging an extra $37 for shipping!

I am that guy who you want to call a scammer or ass hat, I have given many of a good deal to people on here from US MREs to French ones at the MRE Meeting last month. If people want to pay some crazy price for something due to it being hard to find like how I get $20 each for the PIZZA MRE then that is my right. I have kids and a house payment last time I looked.

Oh and by the way eBay takes about 15% Paypal 3% and then shipping is $9.00 to $12.54 depending on where they live. Most of my sells are 4 random for $32 each.

So you want to call me a Asshat look at your self SIR !!!!


Thanks

If you have kids and a house payment, that's your problem so don't ask for my sympathy because you won't get it. Charging $75 for one MRE surely won't help you much with making the next house payment. No one is denying your right to sell something for an unreasonable price, but I have a right to point out how utterly stupid and greedy you are for doing that. You see, it goes both ways.

Think it would be best to both just walk away from the topic. I don't think name calling (by either party) is going to solve any disagreement. Walking away and not dealing w/ one another really is the best solution here.

I've already reported his post, I'm not going to engage the troll any further. Perhaps I shouldn't have responded in the first place.

These dust-ups seem to happen all the time over pricing, and it's always ridiculous. A seller is welcome to ask whatever they want for a ration, and the market is welcome to either accept that price and buy, counter-offer, or not buy. It's that simple. If everyone were to vote with their money and not their mouth, things would flow a heck of a lot smoother. The name calling both ways is just disgusting.

Well I don't take kindly to being called a ass hat and a scammer as I am neither of them and everyone I have sold to on here as been below market price for the items.

If someone has an issue with me then bring it to me and don't call me out and call me names on a forum. The sad thing is if he would of wanted it all he had to do was email me on here and ask for it and I would of sold it to him for next to nothing.

I am sure no one on here would like it if I called you and your side business names on a public forum !!!
