  • STUPID-STUPID-STUPID GRrrrrrrrrrrrr Some people are just STUPID

    OK, I am trying to buy a Leupold Scope on E-Bay. However they refuse to sell it to me because it can't be shipped to a foreign country. Here is their last response: "You will have to contact your local customs. Customs will not allow us to ship this item".

    Note: This company is in the continental United States. And thinks Alaska is a foreign country.

    Wow thats disappointing, i'd be concerned about the scope being genuine, sounds like its coming out of California?

      Hey, I had a guy here in Maryland think AK was an island out by Hawaii. Most maps show AK and HI by themselves, and I guess he wasn't aware that AK was attached to Canada.

            I tell people (Lesser 48-ers) that it is generally 1.5:1 given that most items are at least half again more expensive in the Republic of Alaska than it is in America.

              Friggin crazy! I too have had my share of people not knowing where we are and have had some actually argue about it.
              Aside from stupidity- shipping is nuts!
              I was just pricing some tires I can't find locally and one large tire retailer wanted $712 for shipping 4 tires to me ground. 2 day air was $1200.

              AGL- let me know what scope you were wanting...I have a couple of leupolds I might let go of.

                        "Sir, we only ship to the continental US."
                        "Mam, Alaska is part of the continental US"

                        A few times I have held some companies to their 'free shipping to continental US' just out of spite for being treated rudely. They get a memorable geography lesson and the web page jargon switched tout suite. Lucky they did not not ship me a box of rattlesnakes.

                          Thanks Andy. I had some other mud tires sent up that way and saved a couple hundred bucks.
                          AGL- good luck with getting it and I hope it is a good buy.

                            Keep in mind that half the people in the world are below average. And, average isn't all that high.
