I've seen them oversell before, and when that happens refunds have been quick and painless.

I wouldn't hesitate to give them my CC info if I wanted to order this knife from them.
I see now that they sell lab equipment, microscopes, telescopes, as well as hunting optics. Actually looks like a pretty reputable place.

By the way, they still haven't debited my bank account for the knife, even though PayPal says they've sent the payment to them... and I couldn't help noticing that one day wasn't subtracted from the expected 6-17 days before shipping :)

Sorry about the delay. I plan to PM the list tomorrow and run it by Tazkristi before posting (it's not a complete list, etc.)

I've never been censured for posting the full name of a Spyderco dealer here, and I've done it more than a few times when answering a question for a newcomer. PM Kristi, to be certain, but AFAIK and IMHO, store name acronyms are used for the same reasons all the other acronyms are used.

Thanks very much for the input Paul. I've used individual names too, but, as for my list, I haven't been around (in this hobby) very long and I'm sure I've overlooked some worthy dealers. I wouldn't want it to appear to anyone as a forum endorsed, complete, or exclusive list. Of course, I could just state that when/if I post it :)

Well, one time, in a story at least, three rabbis put God on trial, so it's possible :D :D

I'd like to apologize once more about the list delay. I wouldn't go so far as to say I have a "real life" :) but things have been very hectic for the last few days. My yard looks almost like Chuck's "before" picture of the area behind his fence, with a dozen yard-high mimosa saplings, and the neighbors will probably soon put "CUT THE GRASS" signs in my yard :eek:

I'm typing it up now, but somebody will probably post a much better one about the time I finish :rolleyes:

I've PM'd the "quick" & dirty list and inquired about the advisability of cleaning it up and posting it on the forum ;)

There is this other knife forum on the net that prohibits repeating the name of any retailer that doesn't give them money, so some people get in the habit of using the abbreviations or pseudonyms.

Is the opticsplanet price of $183 a fair one? This is the first sprint run I've followed closely and plan on buying, so I'm still a little green. I've heard other estimates as low as $140 or so. What do you guys think is a fair price?

My personal take is that, including shipping, they seem to be running around $157 at some of the reputable dealers that usually carry sprint runs. I think $183 is a bit high (they had a coupon code for $5 off --> $178). But IMO, the demand for these Cruwear Millies will exceed the supply, so I think a lot of people will be willing to pay $20 or $25 extra if they really want to ensure getting one. I think their price will be doubled or more in the secondary market.

Personally, I've asked 4 or 5 places to email me when they become available and have got my name on the backup preorder list (with option to cancel) at one place that doesn't email.

Good luck!! :)

I don't think $183 is too bad, considering what they'll probably go for on eBay once they're released.

Thanks for the info; I had the feeling there was something going on influencing people to say "fleabay" and so on. There could be reasons to do the same on this forum that don't immediately meet the eye.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

CAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO DO WHILE WAITING FOR THE CRUWEAR MILITARY TO SHIP.
