I've actually thought about reaching out to the board for this...I see this PSA deals all the time and I can't do anything about it. I used to have a source in RI but they moved..
Send me a PM to discuss to details.

As daekken said, this is best for big savings or hard to get items in MA. I don't drink much so removing a six pack from the equation should help, but I would request that anyone who PMs about this is/goes green to support NES.

I've done it for MA inmates.

The thing is, for the buyer it needs to be a great deal after you factor in the cost of the six-pack (or equivalent), gas to drive there and back, and your time.

I.e., a four-pack of most craft beer I like runs $12-$15. Add on, say, 1-2 gallons of fuel (call it $6.00) and your time (however you value it) and you've already lost almost $20 of whatever the savings were. For some deals it's definitely worth it, or if you really buy in bulk, but for $10-$20 off it's probably not worth it. Or alternatively if it's for something you have a hard time sourcing in MA.
This! I can't think of too many things I'd want to drive 2+ hours for. It's like the guy on another thread arguing he shouldn't have to say where he is on a WTB ad. Ummmm, I'm not going to BOTHER to even offer my item until I have an idea WHERE you are, dude. ????? Perhaps that's why you aren't getting any response. LOL

You add it to your cart on the Davidson Defense site and the pricing comes up as $48.99.

I ordered 2 earlier today that way .... and I paid the $48.99 price.
Well I'll be an Elizabeth Warren constituent! Thanks!

This is what burnt me out as a Mod here. Most have reading comprehension difficulties (can't follow the instructions for ads) and get their panties in a twist when called out. Most don't seem to comprehend that giving a location is helpful in buying/selling . . . and merely "MA" doesn't work well . . . let's say someone is on Nantucket, don't expect the person in Pittsfield to be interested in meeting you.

Now that I'm merely a paid member, I just skip over those sort of posts.

I don't know that he was looking for any specific response and soliciting 6 packs, just saying some of us that line north of the border are willing to help others out. Personally I live about 5 minutes into NH and I work in MA Monday through Friday, and I know I'm not alone here. So depending on where in MA someone may be, meeting up with someone like me could be easier than some think.

Holy SMOKES this is an excellent deal. I just bought two (one for me and another for a friend for Christmas maybe)

Make sure to use the Comm2A link, of course.

Celestron 52322 Landscout 12-36x60 Spotting Scope (Army Green) $25.98

https://www.amazon.com/Celestron-52322-Landscout-12-36x60-Spotting/dp/B00B7LQ2EO?tag=gddeals19-20&th=1#customerReviews

This hot day is not being very kind to my wallet.
mine came to night, nice compact set up. Playing with it in the house under poor lighting its not bad at all. Was a bit to cloudy to test its star gazing .....should do well enough for quick handy use.
It feels like most Celestron scopes , heavy for size and not like a complete POS.

I accidentally shipped mine to Indiana...looks like I have to wait a few weeks to bring it ‘home’ so I can actually use it.

It looked like a really handy little setup though! Probably great for bench top or even my hunting bag maybe?

The scope is small, but easier to transport that way. Seems nicely built. Decent tripod for the price.
View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84bm0xjf3Yo

for $25 shipped first impression is well worth it.

snuck out to check zero on a rifle .....on 36x at 100 yard its clear and I could pick up the 30 cal holes, 22lr holes on the whit backer could be seen but I doubt you could pick them up in a black bull.

depending on where you are in MA, there is a place in Portsmouth you can ship to and pick up. Don't want to blast out the name, but its a Room that accepts your Parcel. Costs like $4 per package to hold for one week, I think additional weeks is like $1-2.

Portsmouth, RI, or Portsmouth, NH?

If the room isn't legally attached to a common carrier it's a bad idea. UPS/FedEx depots are fine, their retail stores if independently owned aren't.

TSUSA email today... Federal HST all flavors 50% off, no coupon, then added my Prime Membership discount so 9mm and 45acp were 45¢ & 84¢/round respectively, free shipping. Adult sig required so no porch monkeys.
What do you mean by "porch monkeys"?

Email says add to cart and it will deduct automatically, no coupon required.
Sometimes I forget to include ALL the details:(. That's why NES is my safe space, always somebody that can rescue me from myself...

Thanks, that worked. I didn't get the email about this sale, got one on Friday from them with their regular ad though.
Maybe the universe didn't want you to buy it? In which case you should probably get two...

Props to @Radtekk I saw the email as well and was going to post a tip.

TSUSA had this same HST sale exactly one month ago and then I kicked myself afterwards thinking I should have ordered more.

So yippee for me! Order some more 9mm & 9mm+P today.

At a price of $18.40 a box (prime) I would be a fool not to.

They might be bummed though they could have packed it with the Wolf Gold .223 I order Saturday.

I've done that same thing before, felt bad, actually sent them an email and called, still got two shipments. My UPS guy is gonna be pissed though, I usually order a case of one thing or another every time, this time I ordered a case each of 9mm and 45 and another of 9mm RN.
