visited a military junk yard in Tucson. Had a whole bunch of trailers. One British one I wasn’t familiar with. Enjoy

Wow.  Quite a spread he has.  When I see places like this, it makes me wonder how many more yards like this there are out there...and the hidden gems they may have.

 Sometimes you have to get out of your hideaway and spread your wings! You never know what you can find on some old gravel backroads where not too many others travel. That's the best way to find gold. Just head out for a Sunday drive, just you and the little lady!!Wink

I searched everywhere to fine the lunette for my M416. Ended up finding it in Canada. This place never appeared in all my searching. I wish it had. Wow. Quite a place.

I here ya Chuck.  I do have a hard time getting out far enough from the hell I call Denver.  Around here, these kind of places don't exist, or have been picked clean.

I could spend hours in a yard like this.
