I believe it was tiger direct that this happened on, but one of my friends was going to buy a $21 computer fan and it was going to cost $76 for shipping.

figured out why Opticsplanet charged so much with USPS:
They calculate every good seperately, aka if you buy 10 different pouches, the system is thinking they're sending 10 packages.

Anyways, I didn't know ESS prevent US dealer sell internationally (ESS themselves) so my order from Opticsplanet is cancelled. I took on Camstick Canada instead since my $100 off coupon is working once again (for 6 months camstick was offline and my coupon only have 1 year)
I'm still kinda fussy that no one in Canada has the ESS Tan Turbofan, and the fact its like $40 more expensive with shipping factored in.

Sorry I'm just sold by its price and the quality. (The fact that I want a unholy crusade on China also comes in play)

Sorry I just have to rant cause this is unbelieveable.
ye i know it sucks that we're Canadian. But hey if you get hurt in Airsoft games you get healthcare coverage!~

UPS is a rouge criminal organization run by the Russian mafia in co-operation with Al-Qaeda, the CIA and the FBI....and MI5, and the creators of Toy Story.

Brokerage fees are pure bullshit. It's mind blowing that companies can be allowed to shaft you like this....just because they can. Back in the day it may have been all in the name of fair trade. But in the internet age, a guy showing up at your door and demanding a hundred bucks or you lose your shit (which you couldn't have got any other way) is not really fair or negociable.

I will say that probably the best hands down for ordering anything online I've seen is Tiger Direct. $3.99 for regular shipping on anything. My laptop earlier this year came in a box that could have easily held a whole desktop rig. Only cost me $3.99 and I got it in like 2 days. For some reason they use UPS....but they've got them bitch slapped or something cause they haven't tried to pull any shit on me. Aside from being complete morons and leaving a box that says "Best Computer Deals Anywhere" in my fucking driveway and walking away....

Be glad, CP had at one point left a Remington 870 12 Guage shot gun at the door at once despite the package was labeled firearms, 18+ signature required. Ammunition also has be heard left that way.

The majority of Blackhawk gear is made in China and Vietnam.

You need to buy Tactical Assault Gear, High Speed Gear, Blue Force Gear, Tactical Tailor etc. if you want quality and not made in China.

I dunno man.... UPS left $2100 of stuff just sitting there. If it were a gun, I highly doubt it would have made a difference.

CP left my SAW at my door despite it being 'signature required'. I checked on the online tracking, and seems the delivery guy signed my name and left it. Gotta love CP contracting out deliveries to the lowest bidder.

Didn't someone post in the " I hate CP" thrreat that CP left an AR 15 as well as a few hunfred rounds in someones driveway? If they are negligant enough to leave a firearm and ammunition unattended when they are clearly marked why would anyone be surprised about anything they do?
