If I buy Tasca direct from Tasca, I can sell them for whatever I want, however if I buy them from PCM, despite me being in Canada, then I agree to sell them for their set min. price, if not, then they can refuse to sell them to me. Apparently same goes for all of the other lines they import. The one think Ken fails to understand, is that there are many ways to "skin a cat" and he isn't the only game in town, despite him being the US importer.
On one hand, that min. price is a heck of alot better than what Dragon USA sold them for, but on the other hand.....someone else is dictating policy in my own business. Frankly if I am in his shoes, as long as the LHS's buying from me are paying the kits they buy from me, why would I care what they are selling them for?
Unfortunately PCM also is the importer for Kittyhawk and Panda models (same company in the end), and I assume that it is much the same deal with them....hmmm...wonder if I can buy them direct?
