10 bucks for a lil plastic tube??!! I'll make these all day long! Why is it you put "survival" on something and its worth 10 times as much???
I am pretty sure the prices include shipping from the UK. Anyways, good luck sourcing materials and cutting to length for less than $10 worth of time and money.
Anonymous, thank you for your comment. Disruptive Thinking is encouraged at LastDitchKit.com - if you can make your own version of the Stash Bomb for a buck that would be great. In the meantime I will review the prices - shipping and other costs are unavoidable but it could be possible to offer discount for orders consisting of 2 or more items. I have no issue with negotiating a deal - just ask and I will do my best.
why not use pvc tubing?
