+1. I'd love to own it being a fan of the GD but that's a little steep. And there's a pretty cool DeYoung print too.

At first, I was thinking "Oh. $300 bucks isn't bad at all." Then I read it again and realized it said $300 over standard pricing and instantly put my credit card away.

They could at least throw in a free set of nippers as a token of appreciation for the butt raping they just gave you.

Just what I need, to get searched by all law enforcement while on the water. It would kill the buzz and paranoia would kick in. Not cool. Unless I'm in Colorado
