    Hi Everyone,

    I'm trying to downsize my collection and was wondering if anyone was interested in any of the following items? If so please send me a private message with what you'd like and what you're willing to pay for them - my main thing is getting rid of them so just make me an offer! Thanks very much! The AZA and AAZK magazines are free to whoever wants them, if you could pay shipping for them I'd appreciate it though.
