    I got everything for me or maybe a gift for someone. But really they’re for me. I was looking to replace my Extreme 12 which I damaged before I even loaded a motor into it.

    2 Extreme 12s
    1 Honest John
    1 Nike Smoke
    1 Airborne Surveillance Missle
    1 Centuri
    1 Savage

    Over $100. All to keep. I think I’m the ideal rocketry customer - I build, I fly, I lose, and I give to kids.

    Not a thing. You guys beat me to the Honest John and I really didn't need anything else.

    ARRRRGGGG. Now the crossbow is back in stock.
    Thanks K'Tesh. I WAS happy, now...I have to fight myself NOT to place another order...ARRRRGGGG

    Honest John is showing in stock too.

    Got another order together at .89 over for Free Shipping. Includes the Javelin launch set and 2 spare gliders. What to do.....What to do....
    Maybe I can just call them in the morning an just add the Crossbow???

    Resisted placing the order, no call to add any more. I can't spend another penny on anything this month except bills. Actually, the wife walked in and looked at the screen. I can't tell ya what said to me, but it brought me back to my senses. I did leave the items in my cart....just in case.

    I grew up with my dad having rockets in boxes that he bought on sale......I think my kids are going to experience that too.
    I bought 1-3 of every balsa finned rocket (almost), as well as some of the E2X stuff. Losing a $7 E2X 2 stager is less painful that losing a built, painted, decaled 2 stager.

    I dropped a little over a C note, I have to pay sales tax as I live in CO. Most are for me, but there are gifts for grandchildren, nephews, nieces, etc.

    one (or two) of everything that I didn't have.

    Mainly for me, but my grandkids love to build and fly them as well.

    My order came today.
    4 unexpected items came with my items I purchased.
    Our tree will have 1 ornament this year! Thanks to Estes!
    As a sad note, I received word that my buddy at Estes has Retired this month. I wish him a long health, enjoyable and well deserved Retirement!
