They usually sit right by the cash register and every ww2 or vietnam veteran will eventually see them and have a story to tell about how they were named or how they still have theirs after so many years.

The Mk15 Mod4 Practice bomb has to be one of the best surplus finds our Father ever bought in his 50 year history here at Omahas. They are new surplus from the original crates and in great condition considering the are over 50 years old.
The bombs are completely inert and only weigh about 20 pounds so they are easy to handle or hang up.
Eye-catching, they make great decor for hangars, office, retail, man cave, movie props, trench art, re-purpose, and the list goes on.
We ship them in special cardboard boxes so the fins arrive straight and intact.
we still have a quite a few remaining , but they won't last foreverRead More

Omaha's Surplus was founded in 1963 in Fort Worth, Texas by “the old man,” whose family had been in the government surplus business since 1945, selling various tools and military industrial surplus.
Omaha’s transformed itself in 1983 to a true Army Navy Surplus Store with an expansion into a new building, offering authentic products such as clothing, military outdoor field gear and adventure equipment with an incredible selection of hard to find genuine surplus items. In 1987 the old man’s sons jumped on board to help expand the business.
In 1999, the Omaha’s Surplus e-commerce retail store was born, with the ability to offer more products to people all over the world.
