If this was not a GROUP BUY I would never make such a comment. But considering that GROUP BUYS are suppose to give us leverage to get a better price (like all the other group buys you have put together for us, and I thank you for that). If this is out of line please delete this post.
Well this IS a group buy.
I am basically making a couple bucks per item and that is all.
The fact that places like Cheaper Than Dirt can survive on a .25 markup does NOT mean I can.
If you can do better, please do. This is the best I can do.
On my last Group Buy (Propper) I damn near lost money because I didn't charge enough, I took a real beat on actual shipping costs when they decided to make the deliveries over a period of time and hit me with multiple shipping costs. You'll have to excuse me for not wanting to make that mistake again.
Editted to add:
I'm $10 cheaper per item than the Army Navy store.
And here is a link to Botach:
They are the big internet supplier who buy and sell at volume prices. Their Proppers are more than my TruSpecs. And when I did my Propper Group Buy I was at $25.00 a piece.
Personally I think TruSpec is better stuff than Propper. And the only stuff cheaper is Pakistani (non Mil Spec) knockoffs.
