What happened to the MRE prices?

Post by SpikNik » Fri May 21, 2010 12:41 pm

Hello all.

It's been a while, other hobbies and stupid things like working keep me occupied.

I haven't even checked the new menus (well, new to me), I'll do that later.

So, what happened to the MRE prices? I checked ebay.de and they seem way more expensive than last time I bought.

Are they in short supply?

I was thinking of getting a case (after I remind myself of the menus) but they seem so expensive now it takes the fun out of it :(

Yep, that would do it!

In the meantime I've been checking the recent menus list (2008/09/10), looking good.

That's a great price, the problem part is the shipping.

I pretty much assume that any MRE cases I get would be from Germany.

I don't know where they get them, but there seems to be a steady supply on ebay.de.

But most US installations were shut down and the troops either send back to the States or to "far east". :cry:

We also swep them at field exercises (FTX) or they sold them at the local flea markets etc...
