I had ~60GB going spare on my #RaspberryPi so figured I may as well make the most of it and set up #Samba for file sharing across my LAN.

Can anyone recommend an online store, preferably accepting crypto and based in the #UK, which sells pentesting gear (#wifi adapters suitable for monitor mode etc.)? All roads in my research seem to lead back to the terrible two I want to avoid: eBay and Amazon.
