    Just wanted to know from some of you money spending shooters about other suppliers shipping costs in relation to Optics Planet. Are there others that offer free shipping?
    I have purchased several items from Optics Planet recently and have never paid shipping.
    Reason being is that before Christmas I ordered another new NF scope, but was informed it was out of stock. Now when I pull up their webpage it appears to be in stock but at a higer price. I have sent them an email asking if my original order will be honored at the original price. All the other retailers I have checked on that model show it at the new higher price, but at least thought I would give them the opportunity to say yes or no.

    NF tightly controls retail prices; about the most you can find will be free shipping. If you did not commit to the older price, they probably will not honor it.

    Thanks Gene. I did get a response to my email to them and they are going to honor my original order and price so I will wait until the scope is in stock. Apparently they should know within 24 to 48 hours when to expect availability. That will save me about $60 so the order of the day is patience.
