Default 550 Paracord

Anyone know where to pick up 1000ft spools (or at least a quantity) of 550 Paracord? Seems that most of the online stores want more for shipping than the spool itself.

Down on the peninsula would be preferred, but Anchorage would work, too.

I can stop in and check for you if you want me to, send a PM. I need an excuse to go in there and poke around anyway.

Thanks, but I managed to find plenty at a small military surplus store in the back of a Tesoro gas station on K beach road in Soldotna.

They had 600 ft rolls for $47.00. Reasonable price and the real Mil-Spec thing.
