    Holy Crap!!!!!!!

    For that price they can keep em
    They are gouging on shipping because I have gotten a quote after measuring one of mine no where near that price.

    I hate vendors for trying to make money on the back end when they are making plenty up front on that $13.95 price.

    After twenty years in Alaska, you would think that I would get used to the high price of shipping. Then another company comes along and gouges you even more.

    I ordered a part for my 22 from a company in SoCal. 12.99 for the part, 21.00 for shipping. I called and asked them to put it in a plain envelope and ship it USPS. They told me they only shipped UPS. You can geuss where I told them to stick thier shipping.

    I just checked USPS priority mail one ammo can possibly two can be shipped for $14.65 TO ALASKA

    The cheapest UPS will do it is 61.80 TO ALASKA

    For those that are interested a 50 cal ammo can EMPTY weighs lbs. The dimensions are 12x6x7 (for shipping purposes).



    As I said by the time I shipped them to someone they would be over a $20 bill a piece. Now you know.

    ebay. Eight 50 cal. ammo cans delivered for $90.00. That was $64.00 plus $26.25 of calculated (?) shipping (USPS) from Talladega Alabama to Michigan. It was heavy box too. Sometimes, you have to go ebay.
