What is your strategy?
I love shopping on line but...
I hope I'm not asking too many questions.
Personally, if I have a large order I want to place I look for a single supplier that has most (if not all) of what I want who will forego the shipping charges over a certain order dollar amount.
I also try to wait for Sales at these various favored suppliers. The Labor Day Holiday is coming up soon for instance and I wouldn't be too surprised if the various suppliers out there don't have a big Labor Day Sale.
It seems like there's always be a few things you want that aren't on sale or at your favorite supplier and you just have to bite the bullet and order them up anyway with shipping charges and all.
BTW, we all had questions when we started bulding our AR's.
