The best and only real army surplus store in Reno. They have all the camping, gun, and knife accessories that you could need. They also have a wide selection of camo BDU's and military boots. There is a fenced in space out back of the shop that has a bunch of random stuff with a junkyard atmosphere. Their prices are average for a surplus store but like everything else you could probably find it cheaper online. If you are looking for a typical army navy store with that telltale old musty smell that all good surplus stores have, then you have come to the right place.

I would like to share a sad story turned happy. I am a single mother of 4 and my house was broken into and a lot was stolen including all my camping stuff, kid’s tablets, bikes, even food. I don't make a lot of money so I haven't been able to take my kids camping for a long time. I set out looking for used sleeping bags, lantern, misc. camping stuff. I went to yard sales, thrift stores etc... I came up empty. I went to salvation army today and a worker there said that they didn't have any sleeping bags or anything for camping and that I should try twin city. I walked into twin city and spoke to an associate and I asked if they negotiate.  She told me that yes, they do but I would need to speak to the manager.  The manager Jessica was not there at the time so I waited, as I waited I was looking at the pieces and thought jeez there's no way I can afford this stuff. When Jessica arrived, I explained my story to her and she told me she would give me a 15% discount. I was a bit worried and thought shoot I probably won't have enough money even with the discount.  Once i got up to the register to figure out how much it would be, Jessica walked over and gave me 50% off EVERYTHING! I couldn't believe it. I gave her a hug and started crying. I appreciate her more than she will ever know. I can take my kids now on a much-needed camping trip. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

If you are looking for some awesome, knowledgeable people to work with, these are the guys I highly recommend. Their friendliness and result-driven approach is what I love about them.

The got great military items and camping items for sale. Prices are good but on certain items could be cheaper. Parking isn't bad and they have great items in the back of this place. Make sure you check that out.

You just never know what you are going to find here!  Tip:  check out the additional yard next door!

Real surplus items + other odd things.  Great place for pre-Burning Man shopping.

Great Place!  A one-must-stop whenever I am in the Reno area.  Best selection of bigger and odd ball stuff I've ever seen.  There is a lot across the street as well as an open area behind the store (not clearly marked as I recall).  Both open areas are must see.  Take your time and go down each isle...hidden treasures are everywhere.  Staff was helpful...even cutting some metal mesh for my buddy.  Prices are reasonable.  Real surplus items.
