Can't be much of a source of pride and honor if the flag is reversed. Was that on purpose?

Probably. Assuming the top of the "flagpole" is the top-left corner, the flag needs to appear as blowing in the wind with the flagpole moving forward. If they put the stars on the bottom-left cover (top of the flagpole on the bottom-left), the flag would be blowing backwards, signalling that they're retreating. Hope that made sense.

Edit: That's why, depending on the shoulder, you'll sometimes see the American flag patch reversed on soldiers. Canada doesn't have that problem since our flag is symmetrical.

I would say this deal is cold, but that might be a compliment :D
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburders eat people

The flag is actually not reversed.

"However, according to Army regulation 670-1, Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia, the regulation states when authorized for application to the proper uniform, the U.S. flag patch is to be worn, right or left shoulder, so that “the star field faces forward, or to the flag's own right."

If you see images of soldiers, the flag is displayed the same way – in what appears to be reverse but in actuality when displayed on a person, the flag must have the stars closest to their heart.

Do you really need to refrigerate the guns you're going to kill Canadian babies with?

I was thinking of getting a Military Mini Fridge to keep my grenades etc. fresh. How long is the waiting list and how thorough are the background checks? Do they automatically put you on the Watch List when you buy it, or do you have to mail in a registration card?

In for 2 if it hits $99...or 10 when the liquidators get hold of the unpaid stock and auction off a pallet.

i really just came to this thread for the icy hot burns, and to determine why footlocker (a shoe/athletic clothing store) had gone into selling refrigeration equipment.

but while i'm here: OP, compare this to a new mini fridge you can get pretty much anywhere for ~$150....this is like that terrible marshall stack mini fridge a while back...it's a "sale" on something that was already marked up ridiculously to a niche audience, but still comes nowhere to hotting for the average rfd'r.

if i saw this in someone's garage or basement prior to this thread i probably would have though "oh, that's kinda neat" - but now if i see one i'll quietly know what it cost and that buddy has more money than brains. so, really, you've kind of destroyed this product's value by posting this "deal", imo.

This has to be a shill, I don't see how OP could think this was a hot deal.
