hy Hotchkiss, well to be honest in all the years I have shipped stuff, and with that I mean ONLY tripods & tripod parts,( no guns ore gunparts) I never had one shipment that did not make it, infact I dont know iff your rules are different with those in canada, but about 2 months ago I had a M3 50 cal tripod head wich was hold- opened and checked by canadian customs, but after some weeks delay it arrived complete and safe at the new canadian owners house
detail................. canadian customs took the word head very litterly, the put a hold on the package because they thought it contained a HUMAN head !!
what about that ???!!!!!!!
I am also planning to update my website, and make a special catagory for the tripods for sale and the various parts that I have in stock.
there is a hugh goverment sale coming up here, so we are planning to buy more stuff iff possible
