    Anyone else selling them. I hate these guys that charge $$$ for shipping a book. I bought a book from Powder Valley and they charged $12.50. I wrote them and they said that was the minimum shipping rate. No media rate. I told them to go fuck themselves.

    I guess they need to buy more lube for "handling." Just another way to pump more money out of you. A friend of mine calls it the "reach around fee."

    I emailed Dan because the high shipping cost has, in the past on the AK book, been a problem. Shipping is $5.25 if you order from this site; www.sadefensejournal.com



    QUOTE: I don’t have a way to post there, can you post that www.sadefensejournal.com with $5.25 shipping please
    LMO- it makes us nuts, we can’t adjust the shipping no matter what we do… we have to change web hosting sites in order to lower costs…. And that costs about ten k to do, plus a huge amount of time.

    For an extra .25 cents, I'll support the people who went to the trouble and expense to publish the book...Chipolte Publishing in additon to the MAC book, they also publish SAR and SADJ magazine website; www.sadefensejournal.com

    Regarding OP and the reason this thread was started, I just check shipping cost at LMO and it is $11.25 UPS. Therefore, the whole argument here is null as you can't compare UPS to USPS. I ship 1000's of packages a year. UPS / FedEx will beat USPS hands down for reliability.

    I have shipped USPS Media Mail before, it is cheap, but it can be VERY slow and the loss rate is pretty bad.

    Ya' think?
    Uh, no. Not really.

    They're buying a fucking book! Not a wooden crate of ammo!

    I could understand the anger if LMO was shipping these media rate and charging more but again it is UPS! UPS is more than USPS. Not taking sides with LMO. I would gladly pay for UPS as opposed to the media rate as you'll never get it otherwise.

    Do they still charge that amount if you call as opposed to ordering online? Maybe ask if they can add the freight as a line item instead of in the freight box on the PO or however they work it That way they can put in whatever amount they want.

    shipping was 9.95 and there was a $4.00 "handling" charge added to the total.

    I have a UPS account and can ship a long gun for $15.00 so $15.00 for a freaking book is a rip off. Quit trying to paint a turd.

    I picked my copy up at LMO and chatted with Dan for 15 minutes and came to the conclusion that world peace is still a long ways away.

    Very, very nice work Frank! Thanks for telling the story and clearing many things up. This is a beautiful 500+ page hard bound book and readers won't be disappointed. I'm falling in love with the little buzz guns all over again. I promise that after you have a copy in your hands you'll quickly forget what you paid for the book and shipping.

    Additional thanks for those people, (including a number of our members), for contributing photos and sharing their knowledge.

    Meh... I'll end up picking it up at the Creek and have Frank sign it.... may as well keep the trend going. I already have Ballou's BAR book, Folke Myrvangs MG34/42 book, a bunch of Frank's books, all of Dolf's books and a first run copy of Unintended Consequences by Ross all signed.

    Just ordered mine from www.sadefensejournal.com, I can handle $5.25 but $15 is a rip and I make a point of NOT using outfits that charge silly amounts.
