Flat Rate Shipping at Midsouth

Did you ask Santa to bring some big, bulky items this season? Or, are you tired of getting charged big shipping fees (calculated on retail price) for small, but relatively expensive items such as rangefinders and scopes? If so, Midsouth Shooters Supply has a new promotion that should make you happy. Midsouth is offering $5.99 FLAT-RATE Shipping for all orders of $100 or more placed before December 31, 2007. This is for ground shipping in the Continental USA.

There are some exceptions. First, this does NOT include Hazmat charges. Second, the flat $5.99 fee only applies to orders UNDER 50 pounds. So you can’t order 1000 pounds of casting lead and have it shipped to Montana for $5.99. Still, this is a fair and attractive offer from Midsouth. The 50-lb limit will cover a lot of gear. We’ve personally seen other vendors set shipping charges of $14.50 on inexpensive, lightweight items, after the vendor has tossed on “handling fees”, “fuel surcharges”, and “single-item supplements”. CLICK HERE for more details, or call Midsouth at (800) 272-3000. The Flat Rate Shipping deal commences 11/30/2007. Use Promotion Code “FLATSHIP” when you order.

New Auction Website for Reloaders

In July 2007, eBay announced a policy banning the listing and sales of “any firearm part that is required for the firing of a gun”. This wholesale ban created an immediate vacuum in the auction market for bullets, barrels, slides, magazines and other firearm components.

There’s now a new auction site that hopes to replace eBay for sellers and buyers of gun parts and reloading components. ReloadersAuction.com launched in August 2007, just a few weeks after eBay announced its anti-gun policy. The creators of the new site, who are avid reloaders themselves, explain: “We started this auction site because eBay has stopped the sale of most all reloading supplies, gun parts, and most knives. We wanted to always have a place to buy reloading and hunting supplies at a great deal….” The site combines an eBay-style auction experience with enhanced features including “Want to Buy” ads and barter (“Swap”) offerings.

ReloadersAuction.com

Because ReloadersAuction.com is so new, there were only 400 or so active auctions as of November 30th. But that should change quickly. There are some very nice navigation features which make the site easy to use. Right on the front page, “Ending Soon” and “Most Popular” auctions are listed in convenient table style format, so you can scan dozens of auctions in one glance. The “Most Viewed Items” also appear on the home page, highlighting good deals that you might not find via a word search.

We wish ReloadersAuction.com well. It is based in North Carolina, an area where gun rights are respected, and where there is a strong tradition of hunting and shooting sports. So, next time you need bullets, brass, or reloading accessories, check out this new site. There are some good deals to be had.
