When I was at the Cabela's in Michigan yesterday (Sunday) I DID see the Camo TTi with black blades and plier.  I tried to find the guy that told me they didn't have them but he wasn't in.   >:D

So, just to clarify.  The Dundee, Michigan Cabela's DOES have the Camo TTi.  They had 5 or 6 of them on the rack, and they all looked good.

Great, how on earth did they tell you they didnt have any.

Hmm, if you were to buy one, how much would it cost you with all taxes etc included? Would you also pay the 6% tax J-sews is talking about?

If anyone, regardless of where they live, goes into the store to purchase one, they pay the sales tax.  In Michigan it is 6% but it varies from state to state.

how much does it vary or is it pretty much 6% everywhere? Im thinking this is unavoidable.

Also, are you sure it was the TTI? Not the TI? I suppose the easiest way to tell would be if it had the crimper in the pliers and gut hook on the back of the serrated blade.

I don't live in the US so I can't say for certain, but I imagine it varies, although I doubt by much.

It varies from 3% to 9%, with most states being right around 5%.

Yep, I'm sure it was the TTi.  I saw the Ti first, and the TTi was two rows over.  I checked the model name a few times to make sure it was the right one.

Hmm, so in total (including the tax) how much would it cost you to buy the TTI?

According to the Cabela's website, the camo TTi sells for $129.99
Shipping to anywhere in the United States is (a ridiculous) $12.75

The only way for me to get it any cheaper would be to wait until they are available in the Michigan outlet store. Then the price would be $129.99 plus $7.80 (Michigan has a 6% sales tax)



$137.79 by my math.

Well, i suppose once in a while its worth going for something you really want.

Is that the same amount it would cost 665ae?

If so, are either of you going to the cabela's store in the near future?

What I suppose is the easiest way is for me to buy you an electronic gift certificate for that amount and email it to you from the Cabela's website.

Yes, it will be the same price for anyone who purchases it from the Michigan store. The only way to obtain it any cheaper would be to locate another store in a different state that has a lower sales tax. Although it seems that even if you were that lucky, it would only save one or two dollars. That doesn't seem worth the bother to me.

Okay, camo Charge TTi mission is a go, all systems are checked and ready, all battle stations have been manned, all watches have been synchronized. Barring any unforeseen difficulties, I should be back here with a full report on either Friday evening at 2100 hours, or Saturday morning at the latest.

Alpha bravo niner, over and out.

OPERATION CAMO-CHARGE
Mission Report Log:

After first plotting coordinates into our navigation system, we cautiously approached our objective from the south.


(above) A subtle clue that we were approaching our destination.



This place is ginourmous! Perhaps I should take my GPS into the store with me?



A heated squabble ensued outside between two angry patrons.



EeeK!! Where the heck is the multitool dept in this big barn?



Excuse me. Can any of you fellas tell me where the Leatherman tools are?



How about you guys...have you seen the new camo TTi?



HEY, back off man! I don't want your dead musk ox, I just want to know where the multitool aisle is!



Some of the store staff seemed rather grumpy, and they weren't very helpful.



I didn't even bother to ask the big guy in the archery department.



Holy crap! Almost $400 for a flashlight?! I'm surprised 665ae didn't buy this thing when he was here last weekend.......



The fabled Shrine of the Leathermen.



Ahhhh, the holy grail at last!



Uh-oh, now I've got to remember how to get back out of here!



Next stop, the United Kingdom!

Hmm looking at those pics, am I correct in thinking it doesnt come with any sort of sheath, nor any extra bits? Thats something I overlooked, but maybe itd be better to buy those in the states, even buying over Ebay i am thinking will be more expensive. I had kind of assumed they would be included in the $129.99 price tag, they don't really say on the cabela's website although they do include a misleading picture of a sheath with a TTI in it  :-\

I'd bet companies would pay a fortune for an endorsement like that...

Maybe we should contact Victorinox and see if they'd sponsor Palling Rescue?   :grin:  I'd bet Gerber would- you guys would look great in one of their ads!
