The value of anything is whatever someone is willing to pay.

Wow that's clearly poor research on their part. They were on sale for 11.99 on 515 survival.

I'm pretty sure that Delta Three does not use live inventory and many people never receive their items from them. Before I started my own business I placed two orders with them. One shipped about 2 months later the other one never shipped. I hope you have better results.

Unfortunately......Ebay items go for a higher rate than standard purchase items...chalk it up to the thrill of winning an auction, instant gratification, and bad luck in primary market...imo

Please know that this post was not to bash them but to share my personal experience with them. I dont believe that it is stated on their site but many of the items are backordered. I have spoken with the owner and he is very honest and nice, just wanted you all to know.

That's the beauty of an auction for a seller.

Folks get caught up in the pissing match of

bidding, and completely forget about dollar value.

People aren't crazy, just too emotional, and bent on

winning.
