    Default Best source for parachute cord?

    After finally going through the last of my cache of P-cord, I'm looking for a good source for more, in quantity. I bought two 100-ft lengths at the Second Hand junk store on Spenard to tide me over, and I see Cabela's has 1000' for 40 bucks, plus shipping. Any better sources I'm overlooking? TIA.

    Army Navy store in Anchorage sells a fair amount, not sure what their largest quantity is. Try Arctic Wire and Rope in Anchorage. They carry large spools of all sorts of rope and line, perhaps they have large amounts of parachute chord.

    Army / Navy in Anchorage. I just paid a little extra for bright orange p-cord. 100' for 9 bucks. Black or olive was 6 or 7 bucks. They also have it in 50' lengths.

    I got 1000' from ebay, also. Same price as markopolo mentioned with free shipping. Hard to beat that price and it always seems to come in handy. I wish they had it on a plastic spool, though. Those cardboard spools can fall apart if you get them wet and then you have a real mess on your hands.

    Thanks for all the tips, guys. I wound up ordering the 1000' roll off E-bay. Got here quickly, no shipping charge, hard to beat.
