If you know it is dealer pricing it is probably best not to repeat it. I thought this would be clear to FrankW and now you. Now the dealer price has been mentioned three times with two images. :(
I wonder if you guys are doing this on purpose or if you just have no chill. :P
I didn't know when you asked that question in an open forum (rather than in an IM to him) that it was implied no one else was to answer. Nor did I realize your sarcastic responses to him were meant as a teaching moment. Sorry.
In any case, I'd say it's pretty clear at this point that it's dealer cost, so I'd say your ultimate goal of him figuring it out has been achieved one way or another. I'm not sure what the big deal is about dealer cost being posted as there are plenty of other ways for people to find that out. It's not like anyone is price gouging and putting retail real high; everyone seems to agree the price is fair. I would have thought promulgating the knowledge that's not retail would be a good thing. I don't think anyone was "doing this on purpose", whatever "this" is. If there's a legitimate reason for it to not be posted, a simple IM to me would have sufficed. However, since it got your panties in such a twist that people know cost (even though you seem to be the only one), I've gladly removed the image from my post.
With respect to me having "no chill" - When it took 4-6 weeks (even though you quoted 10 business days max) for you to mount a few flash hiders, I didn't complain. In fact, I turned around and bought a Mod 2 CQB upper & accessories from you. When you "guaranteed" the QDSS-NT4 I bought from you May 1st would be to my SOT in time to beat 41F and it didn't get there until Dec 27th, I didn't contact you to bug you or complain (yeah I know, it was KAC's fault). When I hit you up twice about buying a SR-30 SBR and you never got back to me, I didn't complain (I just ordered an upper from OpParts once they were released). I thought I had been pretty chill with you when it comes to the service I've gotten from you.
With that said, I don't know if you're being purposefully obtuse or have no chill. However, if you're determined to get into a pissing contest, you're welcome to IM me and we can continue the conversation there instead of us both cluttering the OP's thread.
