Re: the saddest day - when new york swallows your new 24-70 (dont trust posties!!!!)

I have had a few things shipped to me - Paintball markers X 2 and Lenses X 2 - all of them arrived safely (although both lenses did not work, but that was not due to shipping) and both lenses when shipped back made it to their destination.

I live in Canada, but have a shipping address in the States and luckily I live only about 20 mins from the border.

I dont have to pay the extra shipping costs (rip off) that UPS charges for having to cross the border. Since it is a "local" rather than international, the contents of the box dont have to be written out to tempt the rare unscrupulous individuals working in the shipping business

So for things I cant get here or for things that cost way too much it works out ok. I try to buy locally if I can, but sometimes it is really hard to justify paying the extra
