I'm curious as to how you got a shipping charge of $90+ from A&A. I went through their checkout process, got a list list of shipping charges and options - consistent with the shipping charges I had laid out above.
For $50.51, I can have a gun shipped from A&A via Purolator Priority post and have it in 4 days. Under $30 gets Xpresspost. And that's across the country.
