Most shooters would rather spend money on ammo and weapons (ugh) than accessories for things that they perceive that they can do themselves.
This is substantially a perceived value issue. What your offering does not appear to give sufficient value compared to its cost. Thats biz 101.
Thanks, I realize that there are much cheaper products out there that work great, but this is primarily academic. It will probably turn out to be a novelty to sit in my garage, but right now I need 30 surveys to make it statistically significant. My coursework walks us through the design process and survey feedback is crucial. That doesn't mean that anyone needs to buy it or use it, and putting a price of less than $200 would be a bit dishonest on my part, since I don't really see that happening.
Either way, I'm having a hell of a time getting 30 surveys (at 22 now), so thanks for taking it.

Yes, but what about loose rounds? Thanks for taking my survey.
