Mp, welcome to the fourm! If you want to have a better chance at not missing out on sprints and exclusives vist this fourm regularly. Members often quickly post notifications they get about sprints and exclusives. I did that when the Para3 sprint dropped at BHQ and it was quickly followed by other members who posted other vendors that were offering the knife. Also, if a vendor has a wish list option sign up for them on multiple sites and they will notify you when the knife is available. I got lucky on this knife and the recent DLT offering I hope you have better luck on the next one.
