Default So what online gun accessories store has the most reasonable shipping costs?

What on-line retailer do you like to buy from that doesn't take advantage of their shipping charges?

Amazon is a great source of miscellaneous parts, often with free shipping.

Bud's Guns offers many guns with shipping included in the price.

Lots of websites offer flat rate shipping, Joe Bob's Outfitters, Cope Distributing.

E-Sarco has reasonable shipping.

Just shop around.

Cabela's offers special shipping and discounts to their members. Midway has selected products with free shipping.

Midway USA has gotten quite a bit of my money over the years.

Midwest Shooters Supply is pretty good too.

I have zero complaints about either.

Sportsmen's Guide waives shipping when you join their club. It's a great deal for that ONE order.

yes! MidSouth Shooter's Supply is another one i like using as well.

Brownell's is a good source and their shipping costs are reasonable as well.

We at Grand Rapids Guns are interested in what you think a resonable shipping rate should be? Flat rate for everything? Built into price? Based strictly on weight/location? What are your thoughts? We are committed to structuring our buying experience so it is enjoyable by all!

You will find more success by increasing product prices and offering free shipping.

Flat rate based on price of order for anywhere in CONUS. Maybe a little extra for Alaska and Hawaii and OCONUS.

Example:
$5 for all orders below $99 (maybe free for orders less than, say $20)
$7 for orders totaling $100-$150
$9 for orders $151-$200

Those numbers are arbitrary. I think you get my idea. Just my opinion. Basing it on weight can get very expensive for the customer, very fast. It can discourage repeat customers.
