"OpticsPlanet.com has a fantastic selection. This is both a plus and a minus. Sometimes it is difficult to make certain you are ordering *exactly* what you want because they have so many choices on their site. I had to go to the manufacturer's site to make certain the item number I wanted. OpticsPlanet.com had it, of course, but it took me a while to make certain I had ordered the proper item. Nevertheless, I appreciate their wide selection.
I am quite tired of receiving an e-mail with many of my orders saying that. "... the item I happened to order is in high demand and they are currently out of stock." I have received that identical response too frequently for it to be true. I think that, because of their unusually large selection, they do not have much of the merchandise in stock. Rather they order the merchandise *after* an order is placed. It takes longer to get the order, but you are able to purchase exactly what you want.
Overall I am pleased with OpticsPlanet.com and I will continue to shop there. But there are two caviats. First, make certain you know *exactly* what you want to order. Go to the manufacturer's site for assistance if necessary. Second, be prepared to wait for a while to receive your order. You will receive the merchandise, but it may take six weeks for them to get it in stock.
As for OpticsPlanet.com, I'd suggest they reword that message saying the item had been in particularly high demand. When one receives that message a few times, they know it is not accurate. I would be willing to reword it for them."
