If my country had been a European Union member then yes that`be 10-4 affirmative, but you see, the only difference between me paying VAT or not, is that I pay 1/4th more and still have to declare contents, pay import taxes and clearances when the package reaches my country.
I`ve tried ordering from VKB NA when they had Rev.B Gunfighters (KG12 grips) in stock recently but got a big ole`denied because my country was unavailable in the shipping options?
I also tried emailing Rayner asking if he could ship internationally, and also emailed and asked Eduar on the matter, then as discussion progressed, if he could ship without adding VAT etc (since my country doesnt use VAT), but so far no answer from both of them on either question.
That said I know I want a Gunfighter badly, and I`m no super-pro virtual pilot, so obviously I know these are highly desired products, Rayner and Eduard are both very very busy, to say the least!
Didnt want to bring it up but Eduard is a bit slower on getting products in as well, compared to NA/RU/AS, which I`m sure is more than likely due to EU rules, laws and regulations.
So yes, getting the product faster, when there are already months of waiting time (not Eduard`s fault), is certainly a factor.
That`s explicitly more the reasons and circumstances why I decided to ask here instead about options for people like me (and, well, me
) rather than busying Ed and Rayner, seeing how busy they are.
Again, I`m not against VKB Europe or anything, Eduard is doing his best to cater to EU customers and that complicated market, of course I have nothing against that, in fact I applaud the man!
