Did a search on 728 N 2nd Street, Lawrence, KS.

Came up with Alphex  and also Red Ink Racing, LTD. 

I am not that far away, but have not been to any of the shops there for years.  I can check with a few other folks that might know something.

Interesting site; I notice that the ad for CFE BLK powder in 1-lb cans that is stand-alone, prices 1-lb at $26.99.

The multi-quantity ad for CFE BLK powder right beside it lists 1-lb cans at $33.49.

Hmmm......

There are quit a few websites like this (probably, but not positive) that advertise lots of items at reasonable prices. My son found one that were like this and when he started to actually place an order, all the items he wanted wouldn't load into the cart.

I did some research and found that they just made up a web site based on a distributor's item. They actually didn't stock anything, but ordered them or try to, from the distributor when they got an order. Some sites actually take your money and say the item is on back order. 

Anyway this is as much as I know, but don't have any idea about this specific site.

i hope i am wrong ... we need good suppliers.  but

this was highly recommended on a gun facebook group i am a moderator on.  when i checked the guy who recommended it i couldn't find his member data.   a ghost ?? ........   so i checked the company web .

and found two customer reviews who had identically worded high recommendations.  ok, agressive marketing.  ?

so i put some tightgroup in the shopping cart and they gave me a message >>>   they couldn't ship unless i ordered $460 worth of items.

sigh.  ken

I have looked for address of some on Google Earth and found it was a residential address.

This is a good clue as to type of operation.

A good supplier lists availability, some list the number of units available.

If it looks to good to be true it probably isn't.

Ken,

That is a typical response from the type of "business" I was referring to in my earlier post.
