I was going to order a quick pin for my sks, $9.95
but $15.00 for shipping ?? is this correct or a glitch.
Thank you for your question, it gives me the opportunity to answer it for many others who would like to know the answer but do not ask.
I offer a flat rate shipping of $15 for simplicity. Shipping to some areas is more and to others is less, but $15 seems to be about average. Also, if the package is larger, and costs me more the same $15 is charged as with a smaller package .... the concept is simplicity and recovery of costs.
Now, the missing part of this equation is the fact that the shipping cost I charge includes tracking for your package. Everything is shipped Expedited or Express, for the simple reason that if things go missing, there is some recourse.
With some reluctance I could ship regular post but my gut tells me this invites trouble ... anyone whose package doesn't arrive or is late can potentially flame me on CGN for something which really was no fault of my own.
My suggestion is to order a pin along with a few other items you might want, in order to soften the blow a bit. Perhaps ask a few friends if they need anything from the site?
This is how I would handle it if I were a customer in order to get the best of both worlds.
Let me know.

Thank You for your quick reply, totally understood.
I will have to look some more at the site to see if i need anything else.
we have worked out a compromise agreeable to both parties.
thanks for that Magwedge !
I have no life
just noticed your website says shipping: $0.00 under all the products?
Yes its just some glitch in the software apparently. I should have the website 'redone in the next little while, hopefully by summer. Just getting by with this one and its quirks for now but it seems to be getting the basic job done.
going to bump this to get it some exposure ...
