Surprized by prices

Check out. Optics Planet


I did a search for crossbow broadheads.
Was surprised by the number of name brands available.
Some with surprising discounts.

They are not just optics , you can search for just about anything related to hunting. Etc.

Not sure about shipping costs .

Get bored, it's worth a look

My wish is that Optics Planet would allow their more desirable pructucts to Canadians, not their fault the way I see it. That is another story.
Grrrrrr!! :thumbdown:

They do rather have a great selection and offer good sales prices within a well designed website.

Midway USA also has great prices but if your Canadian they deny your purchase!!! :(

It's hit or miss. I bought a sunshade for a Burris scope from optics planet and they offered reasonable shipping with included brokerage and everything worked perfectly. Took a while, but no hidden fees.

I live in NB 60 miles from the Maine boarder. I have a postal box number at a business accepting parcels any size, including pallets requiring a forklift. For a small fee. I drive down pick up my parcels and declare and pay the Canadian taxes when I cross back into Canada.
Optics planet is where I purchased my Bushnell Arc 1500 range finder. It was a great price and at that time Canadian money was par.
Brokerage fees is what makes me drive the hour one way. I’ve shipped allot of items to Maine mostly because said items are not or were not available to me here locally.
I priced duck hunting Jon boats here in Canada 2 years straight back in 2009/2010. I priced a yamaha boat here $21999.00. The exact boat same part number delivered to Maine Canadian money at par was $11999.00. Not cool at all.

Ya ever since 9/11 and the Patriots act you can't even buy a scope or or other optic in the US and cross back into Canada with it getting it shipped no can do. I guess a scope you can buy in Canada and in the US will protect the US if we can'get in the US lol Where I live they even do random checks on the US side as you return looking for firearm ammo etc so the US post office box is a no go too !
