    What do you guys do with your old gear? Sell it? keep it? It's getting to the point where I can't house any of it anymore and some stuff is so used it would be hard to sell.

    ( don't know if this thread already has been made...)

    I pass some of it down to nephews and nieces where appropriate and some gets sold.

    I've sold some, eBay is a good place for it, it's free to list and you're not out anything if no one wants it. The more used stuff or stuff that doesn't go makes good yard sale fodder if you're ok with seeing it go super cheap.

    real old stuff goes on the wall in the shop. If it is still viable ...family and friends.

    I sell some to make money for new stuff. Some stuff I give to family or friends. I've also sold a few items in a flea market booth.

    I "demote" my old gear down through my kits in order of least used. Then if I have any leftover I use it in giveaway kits.

    Another possibility is that it could be put up for the benefit of the forum in the FSX thread.

    I generally use two options.

    First, I have what I call pocket EDC refills in the car, BOB, stash. This is my older 2nd and 3rd line stuff so if I end up totally nekked I can refill my pockets... IE, like decon after a hazmat incident on Hwy 15, etc, run nekked from a fire... a woman's husband, whatever, I'm not freaking out from m t pockets and belt.

    Secondly, I pass a LOT onto my kids, their spouses and other family.
