(15)

The Bunker is Moore County's only veteran owned military surplus & Militaria collectibles shop servicing Aberdeen, Carthage, Cameron, Vass, West End, Southern Pines, Pine Bluff, Whispering Pines, 7 Lakes, Robbins, and Pinehurst. For the past five and a half years Tom Flores operated his army surplus and historical military collectibles shop out of the former 1920s Esso gas station on Poplar St. In

January 2021, The Bunker moved into Aberdeen's historic district, at 119 N Sycamore Street. The new facility is 8 times the size of the original Bunker location but you will still find the same Great deals and amazing Militaria and it’s all conveniently displayed for your shopping pleasure. We have a little bit of everything and if we don't have what you're looking for let us know and I will see if we can get it in stock. Our aim is to carry a variety of items sought after by people not just in Aberdeen, Southern Pines, Pinehurst, but throughout the Sandhills area. In stock items include new or pre-owned field gear (i.e. ammo pouches, medical and first aid pouches, butt packs, pistol belts, LBE, LBV, LCE, FLC items, canteens, etools, and more), shelter halves and tents, ALICE and MOLLE ruck sacks and packs, camouflage uniforms (ie BDUs, ACUs, DCUs, and Multicam), helmets, boonies, hats, berets, leather and desert boots, badge and patch insignia, inert ordnance, bayonets, maps and documents, wooden ammunition crates, footlockers, field desks, ammo cans, cold and wet weather jackets, cots, tents, and much, much more. We recently added demilled and non functioning ordnance and crew served training aids, as well as historical displays. We also list items online, selling collectible militaria through eBay under the username, "thebunker_in_aberdeen_nc". Selling locally, and through the internet, enables our inventory to constantly turn over; resulting in new and different stock items. Looking to trade an item for something you can use? Give us a call or come on in we buy, sell, or trade.

Because I have gotten in so many new items I took some time to rework the display case and items for sale in it. I also pulled some second hand and foreign uniform shirts to make up for use as ISC police uniforms in Robin Sage. I have blue shirts and tan shirts that can be used for local police vs highway patrol or sheriff department ISC role players. Enhance the capabilities of your training lane by improving the uniforms of your role players and immersive environment of the exercise.

Posters, books, and papers! I sorted and grouped them for those with an interest in such items. All German items from WWI and WWII. I didn’t take any pics of@the inside of the booklets but they’re packed with tons in info and pics.

The last set of WWI and WWII German art. The former collector had quite a few pieces related to German submarines for both world wars. Still researching so please don’t ask “How much?” I don’t want to throw out a crazy like so many other dealers do. I’d rather you make me an offer since German artifacts are out of my expertise. I rarely get these items so I’m playing the long game as the sales are going back to the collector’s family (minus fees). Items will be tagged as I complete research of each item. Many of the smaller items: badges, medals, hats, etc. are already tagged.

I’ve separated out many of the reproduction items from the original German items. These are perfect for reenactors and setting up displays. Pictured are hats, uniforms, and camouflage smocks. NOT PICTURED are dozens of German pins, badges, medals, flags, armbands, and other insignia that would result in this post being censored. If you want to see the other items stop by the store and see them in the Ryker boards or text me and I’ll send you pics.

This is a new one, Pulsar N550 night sight. See pics for capabilities.

The Bunker has gotten in some rare historical artifacts. I will be posting them over the next few days and many will end up in online auctions. The research on most of these will take some time so please don’t just ask how much as I may not get back to you after a while. I’d rather you toss me an offer while I’m researching items.

The good thing about knowing how masks work means I can find parts and build or repair them! So, that’s how I spent my day. The Bunker now has M17, M40, and M42 series masks in stock. I even managed to find and include: water@proof bags, hoods, tinted eye covers, and more. These are perfect for Desert Storm, OIF, and OIF displays!

They’re here! The Bunker finally has Commando patches back in stock! Most of these are going straight to the Army for use with their exercise so if you’ve been waiting for them do not hesitate to get yours today! We also have another exclusive Pineland patch…found only at The Bunker. The Z flag! Those who know what this one is used for know they are the latest thing to be had. Again, most are going to the Army which means I will have just a handful of these limited items in stock! I know I’m keeping one for my collection!

The Bunker has picked up some XXL-R cold weather waffle tops. They are all brand new NOS issue items and hard to come by. I also found some rarely seen woodland MOLLE POUCHES for shotgun shells. Canisters (possible smoke or CS), and other magazine pouches. Combine them with the other pouches and vests we already have in stock and build the best or chest rig you desire!

Pulling out some items that have been sitting on the bottom shelf: SPHR SIBGLE POINT HARNESS RELEASE strap and buckle set for rigging rucks for airborne operations (I have them in of green and gray), M1944 Army field desk (floor model as seen in the TOC), and an old school Norotos NVG mount. The mount is unusual with a slide on attachment that I have not seen before so I’m thinking it is for aviators. If anyone knows who used this model let me know.

Don’t forget to check out The Bunker for civilian name brand outdoor and tactical pants. I have sectioned them off for a quick and easy search for size and brand. Yes, we even have a few in women’s sizes!

The Bunker has acquired new items and parts to assemble into usable military surplus. Recent items include tons of MOLLE gear: woodland rucks, pouches and bandoleers, FLC vest; UCP ruck parts, ponchos, and poncho liners. Also, found some old school SAFARILAND pouches in woodland camouflage. As always, if you like what you see and want to buy it message me. I ship anywhere in the world.

Our Story

The Bunker is a veteran owned small brick and mortar shop specializing in a selection of army surplus and historical military collectibles. The Bunker is located inside a former 1920s Esso station, situated on the edge of Aberdeen's historic district, at 301 N. Poplar Street (just off HWY 1 behind the Napa Store). While it may be small, our use of tall shelves enables us to maximize use of space to stock and conveniently display our inventory. We have a little bit of everything and if we don't have what you're looking for let us know and we'll see if we can get in stock. Our aim is to carry a variety of items sought after by people in the Aberdeen, Southern Pines, Pinehurst, Whispering Pines, West End, Seven Lakes, Vass, Cameron, Taylor Town, Fox Fire Village, Jackson Springs, and Pine Bluff area. At the Bunker we buy and sell US and foreign military items used from WWI to present. In stock items include new or pre-owned field gear (i.e. ammo pouches, medical and first aid pouches, butt packs, pistol belts, LBE, LBV, LCE, FLC items, canteens, etools, and more), shelter halves and tents, ruck sacks and packs, camouflage uniforms (ie BDUs, DBDU, ACUs, DCUs, UCP, OCP, ABU, and MARPAT), helmets, boonies, hats, berets, leather and desert boots, badge and patch insignia, inert ordnance, bayonets, maps and documents, wooden ammunition crates, footlockers, ammo cans, cold and wet weather jackets, tents, and much more. We also list items online, selling collectible militaria through eBay under the username, "thebunker_in_aberdeen_nc". Selling locally, and through the internet, enables our inventory to constantly turn over; resulting in new and different stock items. Looking to trade an item for something you can use? Give us a call (910) 637-0194 or come on in we buy, sell, or trade. Please note the owner and operator also supports government military contracts and occasionally closes the shop for 1-2 weeks while participating in exercises such as Robin Sage.
