Hi CR,

I purchased from colonial*md a couple of times back in 2009.
Grey ghost headphones and a pistol probe... no problems or dramas.

I just ordered a pro pointer, sand scoop, and Lesche from them.  The Lesche was $34, cheapest I've seen.  Arrived in exactly 6 days to Sydney.  Excellent service and lightning fast.

I just received my order from Rich, after a bit of back and forth banter on recommendations etc and some of it was on a Sunday  ;)  i ordered on the 10th their time, it was shipped same day and i just picked it up from the post office on the 15th.
Excellent packaging, probably the best ive experienced actually, the 2 sets of Gray Ghosts were surrounded with bubble wrap and in separate boxes and the Stealth Classic scoop was packaged nicely with plenty of packing to fill the voids.

I would'nt hesitate purchasing from Rich again, he gave me a discount on the shipping as he did in some of the posts above and also discounted the second set of headphones.

cheers
Darren

Ordered a Sampson shovel and the Lesche hand digger from them 8 days ago and it arrived yesterday!   ;D

They even gave me an $8 refund on a postage overcharge!

Couldn't be more impressed~
