Naa companion.... Arghhhhh
« on: March 09, 2014, 09:43:43 AM »
So I paid "300" for mine because they were unavailable everywhere...
cTD just got them in for 207!  I'm soo pissed at myself!
100 extra bucks I spent, I tracked it with ups and it's a day away

I feel your pain; I try to research items before making the purchase.  That doesn't mean I always get the best price, but try to have several choices. I won't tell you how much I paid for my used-as new NAA. M__

Yep, when something you want is listed as unavailable and you find one....then you buy it.

If it helps you at all, CTD does not actually have these in stock as I am writing this.  Monday the NAA factory is tooling up for production, so it is impossible for CTD to have these in their warehouse yet.  CTD has a standing order, and are counting on that order being shipped "sometime this week".  The "availability" will go away as soon as CTD has pre-sold the stock coming in.  To add salve, the factory price is $234 plus shipping, so rationalize it as only paid $73 "too much."  On the other hand, your price would have been a bargain if one of the NAA cnc machines bit the dust and CTD's order could not be filled.  That's known as hedging your bets.  You'll get that $73/$100 back by learning cool tricks with that NAA from this board. {?|

Those are really cool, but totally illegal in MA.  What a bummer  :'(
But the BP version is fine and dandy.  So, make mine an Earl.   (T^

Boot grips would look nifty.  Daddy and Little Guy, going out shooting.
