Rob at Green Mountain Gear mentioned that he currently has a special on HK91/G3 Alloy magazines in new, unissued condition. Rob notes: “Some of them might have slight handling marks from moving around the world over the years. The first 20rnd magazines I pulled look simply awesome! Hit them with a little degreaser and you have a great looking magazine at a rock bottom price. These are not “bargain bin” used magazines and each shipment will be hand-packed to make sure that no ‘junkers’ slip in. This is not a group buy and thus there is no wait time. First come, first served as there is limited quantity. HK G3 magazines in this condition are drying up fast so this is a great time to stock up. There are no additional quantity discounts available at this time due to availability. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to stock up. However, you can order as many 20 packs as you like. A 20 pack (Twenty HK magazines) is $84.99 mailed to the 48 continental states via USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate ($8.95 is included in the price). That is just $4.24 per magazine, delivered! Most people receive their shipments within three days via this shipping method so it is a real bargain and much cheaper than UPS/FedEx options.”

Some more “I told you so” headlines: Dollar drops to 26-year low versus Pound Sterling. Meanwhile, Dollar drops against euro on static U.S. interest rates. Near the end of this article, we learn: “The New Zealand dollar rose Friday to 77.39 U.S. cents, the highest level in 22 years, and the Australian dollar climbed to 85.22 cents, the strongest level since 1989.” We can conclude that this is a great time to be a US exporter, but a painful time to be an importer. Likewise, it is a great time to be a European tourist in the U.S., but a lousy time to be “An American in Paris.” Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: Simultaneously, spot gold jumped $10 per ounce. I hope that you all took my advice and minimized your exposure to dollar-denominated investments. Look for more record-breaking declines in the USD in coming months.
