    Motorola NMN6191C Radio Mic

    Hey y'all, I've got a Motorola NMN6191C radio mic that I don't need and want to get rid of.

    EMS Ball Caps to Trade?

    I willingly accept and admit the fact that I'm a ball cap slut. I've got tons of them and I'm sure there are others out there like me who do as well. Now that I'm changing careers from nursing to EMS, I've decided to start collecting EMS agency ball caps. I figure as good a way as any to get...
