China is far from Canada. How much for shipping?

Shipping from Hong Kong is fairly reasonable and quick...especially by EMS.

:shock: :evil:
Sure makes you wonder why it costs at least $12 to ship a scope within a single province, doesn't it?.... :roll:

Shipping within Canada is expensive and insanely slow!!!!

Between Christmas & New Years, I ordered a 20lb package from Poland, it left on the 27th of December and arrived on January 5th...not so bad and it was cheaper then ordering from the States.

I get small parcels from China (with tracking!) that cost them 1/3 the cost for me to ship to them with Canada Post (w/out tracking!!)... :shock:

HORRIBLE rates here in Canada... :evil:

I would not dispute the shipping rates in Canada are terrible.

But- a small item from China is neither insured not tracked- if it goes missing or damaged you will need to count on the goodwill of the vendor to resolve it.

Also, just for the point of mentioning it: unless this Chinese seller bought a huge, lifetime stock of oversupply from Gamo, Tasco and Bushnell at pennies on the dollar- they are counterfeit scopes. There's no way a legitimate Bushnell anything is selling for $21.00, over and over again on a regular basis from the same seller.
