The same seller has been selling Goex for a month. Has 1F, 2F, and 3F. States to whoever wins an auction they have the option to buy more at that price. They must have a lot of Goex to sell. The auction I listed above is the third one he sold for 3F powder and the selling price was $275 to $325 for five pounds.Yeah, poor guy got ripped off.
65 bucks is three times the cost of European powder.Something folks do not seem to be mentionng except about the price is the complaints of no local options. Well imagine you are opening your own store. Yea I know a lot a work. So where are you going to get your BP related products as the owner? Dixie? TOTW? Log cabin? MBS? Abes? Other places? Straight to the source? Ted Cash? Pedersoli? CVA? Traditions? RMC? Goex? BP you need to buy through a dealer. So you do these things. What price are you going to pay buying from them? Do they offer a dealer discount? Reseller discount? Or will you pay same retail we pay if ordering as an individual? If these folks offer that it is less profit to them. BP distributors are charging basically the same as you all will pay. $24-25 a pound of goex. So how you gonna make money and that price does not include shipping or hazmat. What price are you paying for a ted cash capper to resell? Remember you gotta put food on the table somehow with a cash profit. Complain about the added markup? How are they supposed to feed their families. Thus they close their doors and we scramble for sources and complain. $65 is a bit much right now......future?
I don't think you can blame Gun Broker for charging sales tax. I believe that is a federal or state regulation. It is all about the government getting their hands on more of our money. GB is just required to collect that tax.Well, needing to buy more than you want to get what you want is kinda similar. I only needed and wanted a pound, but had to buy five pounds to be able to order it online from Graf's. Other vendors similar (one was full cases only). Five pounds is going to last me a really, really long time!! At least I got free hazmat and free shipping.
GB ain't what it used to be. I've scored a lot of good deals there, but not lately with their mandatory sales taxes and fees assessed to buyers.
