    Why do you say "We are prohibited by our manufacturers from listing prices on the internet"? Other online sellers have pricing, and sell the same brands as you. Do you stock safes? Do you have a large inventory? Or do you ship from the manufacturer?

    First, Fort Knox is the primary problem where listing prices is concerned as I sell below their minimum advertised price guidelines. If you found a company advertising pricing on Fort Knox, you can pretty much bet they're higher than I am. Trust me, it would make life a lot easier if I had all my pricing on the web. BTW, that website needs to be updated as we really no longer do anything with Browning. They have a good product, but it just plain doesn't sell any more. We also need to get the Champion product line on there as well.

    I do stock safes and I also ship from the manufacturer when that results in a freight savings for my customer. It has no effect on my pricing either way as the manufacturer pays the shipping charges to my warehouse when I buy in quantity. Unlike a lot of gun safe "dealers", I deliver and install. Many Internet operations are strictly drop shipping from various manufacturers. I have personally delivered and installed safes from the east end of Long Island to south Florida and all points in between.

    Well I dont know about all the games of salesmanship,including what's free freight or not.
    All I can say is when I ordered my Amsec BF 66X36 this past October I could have had in a few days for a freight charge nearing $450.00 or wait a few weeks for the dealer to bring in an 18 wheeler load of them.
    I paid $2299.00 for the textured painted gun safe equipped with the dial spinner lock.
    I being a frugal guy waited and saved.

    That's what I was saying in terms of dealers having their freight paid by the manufacturer when they order in sufficient quantity. I get into the same thing with Fort Knox, for example, when somebody wants something fast that I don't have in stock. If Fort Knox has what they want, I can drop ship it to them, but they'll be paying freight from the factory in Utah. If they're anywhere near me, it will save them $$$ to wait for my next load to come in. I make the same money either way, just like your AMSEC dealer I'm sure.

    And I think that is a killer deal, right there.
