Whatever you're on - I _want_ some!
See Michael William's post about 016C bomb prices.  Our 'dealer list' is GBP271 
+ 17.5% VAT.  That's GBP318.  His US 'dealer list' works out at GBP236.  And 
there are _no_ 'special prices' like his available here.  I had mine shipped in 
from Germany - GBP184 including all taxes.
