I cant wait! I ordered one of these badboys today to add to the collection. Hope bentobox is fast with shipping cause waiting for a new PM2 to come in the mail is brutal. Now if i could only find the regular PM2 with black G-10 and black DLC blade. I think that one might be harder to find than the sprints.

Add in shipping and insurance and the total comes in at $200, too much if you ask me.

I have one from the first run and it cost exactly $189.70 to be delivered.
Why does bbs charge so much when KWs Green 204p exclusive will be at my door for $147.90 (with a MSRP of $189.95) :confused:

Phew... paying instate taxes for online purchases really stinks. It's the main reason I've never purchased anything from KC; I'd like to support a local business, but with a little higher than average initial cost, plus in state tax, and add in shipping fees and I either end up going elsewhere, or abandon the purchase altogether.

I thought bbs' insurance was mandatory? I don't remember specifically adding it when I bought the M390 Para, but I certainly paid $2.90 for insurance as per my transaction receipt.

Not sure what the policy used to be but it does state that its optional and there's definitely no insurance charge on my paypal reciept.
Speaking of sales tax, does anyone know where BBS is located? I know i live in california and was charged sales tax. I have made many purchases from sellers in other states before and not been charged sales tax.

It says if you are in Cali, they will charge 9% sales tax. I think they are in SoCal. Unfortunately BBS are the only retailers that carry the M390 Para in smuff blue G10.

Sales Tax on the internet takes the fun out of online purchases. 9% is ridiculous. WTF!?

For in-state sales, they have no choice.

Creative people have plenty of choices... it's just those choices are frowned upon by the higher ups

Mine was $199.95 with shipping (Texas) and insurance. The insurance is optional and you have to add it to your cart from the main page. Yeah it is too much but it is a sellers market for PM2's right now, especially limited runs, and they know it and are taking advantage of it. I won't be exactly eager to give them repeat business down the road because of it, but it's either them or the secondary market for a premium PM2 since the CTS-204P version is still not available. I just snagged a good deal on a PM2 CTS-XHP and got a S35VN dirt cheap a few months back, so I'm trying to rationalize my purchase through cost averaging. I wish Spyderco would just offer a premium version option(s) of the PM2 to all dealers as they don't benefit from a single dealer jacking up prices or flippers in the secondary market.
