ALL ITEMS ARE NEW NOT USED SURPLUS

Having seen some of your previous deals - all of the products in these boxes are 50 state legal, right? Or at least you'll take care to not ship products to states where their possession is illegal (for instance, the stun guns you have shown before).

vote-for3vote-against

@dcalotta: We made sure all the items put into the boxes were 50 state legal, i.e no switchblades, brass knickles, lockpicks or stun guns.

Its a Military Mystery Box, so Camo clothing, survival gear (matches, first aid kits, folding shovels, flashlights, knives) Camping supplies (tents, machetes, solar showers) Hunting gear (tactical vests, Camo Jackets, Boots) And much much much much more.

I was going to order until I realized their site is not secure!

No PayPal?...I'm out too :(

vote-for2vote-against

sorry guys. as interesting as this looks (not to mention some other stuff on your site), no secure payment method = no business from me.

vote-for1vote-against

If I try to put https in front of the URL, I get a complaint that the site is using a certificate issued to bkindustries.net ... Hmmm ...

vote-for1vote-against

Agreed, looks awesome though...

vote-for1vote-against

I did some checking around on their site and they are actually BK Industries! This must be a shadow site or sister site.

vote-for2vote-against

Paypal does not allow the sale of weapons, and so we had to remove them from the site.

We use Gunpal which is the alternative to Paypal, the Official payment system of the NRA. The sites are not integrated with it yet however, so if you would like to pay through them let me know and I will invoice you from them.

vote-for5vote-against

@keehnle: lol, haven't noticed we only post from four sites?

BKIndustries.net
Wholesalemartialarts.net
Wholesalemilitary.net
WholesaleSelfdefense.net

All four sites state in the terms and conditions that they are entities of BK Industries

vote-for1vote-against

At the moment the sites are all running on a shared hosting plan with BKIndustries.net Although they ALL have secured certificates because they are running on the same server IP web browsers can only see the bkindustries.net cert not the others.

We are trying to remedy this issue this week by moving each site to its own server.

However if you want to pay securely than simply contact us and we can invoice you from GPal.com

No Paypal, no sale.

Last time I bought something w/o paypal from a "military" vendor, charges for $300 in online porn showed up on my card.

Everybody knows I'd never spend more than $150 ; )

vote-for2vote-against

Just use paypal to pay for it guys... paypal has a plug in that will generate a one use credit card for you. So generate a card use it one time and voila. Its master card I believe... but my real question is why am I paying tax? If your not located in Mississippi and theres not a branch of your store in Mississippi I thought I didn't have to pay taxes?

Addition:
I really would like to buy this in hopes of getting something really cool like a gas mask or something but with my luck I'd just get a compass so I think I'm going to pass =(

vote-for2vote-against

@dravack: You are still responsible for paying sales tax to your state of residence when you buy something online, but I don't think you are required to pay taxes to other states.

vote-for2vote-against

@capguncowboy: interesting... alot of stores like newegg for example doesn't charge taxes though when you buy out of state.. I was always told that was because they don't have a store located in my state?

vote-for1vote-against

Forced HTTPS & went in for 3. Should be fun opening these suckers up. Always a sucker for a mystery box/grab bag.

vote-for1vote-against

@vuoto: lol, thats great, but I think if I was charging people $300 in porn instead of the military gear then someone in the last 5 months of me being on woot would have said something. lol

vote-for1vote-against

@dravack: I have over 200 Gas masks mixed in the boxes as well. So your chances are good.

And it shouldn't be charging you tax, I haven't seen a single order come through with tax being charged yet (except the Utahns of course)

vote-for1vote-against

@dravack: As an online store I dont HAVE TO charge tax to people outside my state of business, however most states prefer the online business to charge everyone no matter what state they are in. When we do this (such as on the BKIndustries.net site) when we file taxes we pay out to all 50 states, not just Utah

vote-for2vote-against

@dravack: You're responsible to pay sales or use tax on every purchase (in most states), regardless of if it's withheld at the point of sale or not. Many state tax income tax returns now have a space for sales/use tax.

vote-for1vote-against

In for 3. This will make up for NEVER catching a bag of crap before they're sold out.

@bkindustries thanks for all the updates! Would have been a bit wary without them.

vote-for1vote-against

i got 2 they are definitely worth it :)

vote-for1vote-against

forced https and in for 2. now the wait begins. not as bad as the boc, but still a wait.

vote-for1vote-against

@dravack: The paypal plug-in is not available anymore.

vote-for2vote-against

In for 2, c'mon flame-thrower!

vote-for2vote-against

Definitely interesting but throwing away $10 on a t-shirt I probably would never wear seems like a bad deal for me. $5 covers the wholesale cost for most of items that are listed that you might win. I think if it were more like $1 per box I might be interested.

This company might be good and have good items but there are so many companies giving away garbage for $5 plus $5 shipping its really hard to trust anyone anymore.

vote-for2vote-against

@larrylipfird: As mentioned above, paypal does not allow the sale of weapons OR military related items and so we cannot use paypal on the site anymore.

vote-for4vote-against

@mesostinky: The wholesale cost on about half the items are around $5 your right, but the other half are much more, such as the tactical vests. Each model wholesales more then $40 and suggested retail if over $100.

Although 80% of the items are a wholesale cost of $5 the other 20% are well over.

And since the average wholesale cost is the cost of the deal, we don't make any money, in fact we lose some money (for the 20% that are over the cost)

The purpose of this deal is simply to get our name out there and get people to see the quality of what we sell.

No matter what you get its gonna be a deal.

vote-for2vote-against

@mesostinky: I just looked at my paypal and its still there. I can write out a step by step if you want?

Edit: actually I'll do it anwyay

1. Log into your paypal account at www.paypal.com (obviously)
2. Look at the middle right of your screen and click on PayPal Plug-In
3. At bottom click Download Now
4. Click Save as
5. Double Click on the application you downloaded and install
6. Proceed to purchase your items.

If anyone has problems with this please let me know and I'll add pictures.

Note: This will allow you to use paypal anywhere and everywhere that accepts credit cards. Please note that paypal buy protection only works for ebay so will not work. But you will have the normal security of using paypal instead of giving someone your real credit card info.

For those that believe our site is not secure:

Our Site is secure, the site runs on a shared hosting on bkindustries.net

If you go to bkindustries.net/wholesalemilitary you will see its the same exact site (thats the hosted folder)

The SSL Certificate is registered for bkindustries.net, Your information passes through there, the url wholesalemilitary.net is a masked url for bkindustries.net/wholesalemilitary (the folder)

If you want to checkout secure you simply put an s after http to make it secure (the certificate obviously is for bkindustries.net since the hosted folder is there)

I will go in for 5.. I always like to test the waters on new sites doing the mystery box type deals.. If they suck; I just wont bother going back.

If I get a gas mask; Huzzahs all around! (I get to wear them in the Army; but I want one for the upcoming Zombie Apocolypse)

vote-for2vote-against

@dravack: if you could provide pictures that would be helpful...though I may have found the variable. It could be that if you have a verified bank account added to your paypal you can use the plugin because it has someplace to take money from, I do not and so I see no such button.

vote-for1vote-against

I just realized; If I get 5 compasses I would be so pissed lol.. I just bought 10 of them for 2$ ea.. (Military Grade) on Suntek

vote-for2vote-against

@imtheotherguy: Since I don't think theres a way to post pictures here if there is someone tell me how.. till then just follow the link.

And you might be right about the verified thing I'm not sure if thats why or not.

Another option is to use Discover for payments. I generally do this for any company I don't know, until I get to trusting them. Discover offers a one-time number generator on it's site for card holders. It's great for things like this, and also works for recurring payments. Since I only give the number to one place, if I get a second charge, I know not only that it's invalid, but who to blame. :) Plus, if there's a charge-back for any reason (eg you return a product for a refund) it credits properly to your account.

I've purchased items from BK Industries in the past with my Credit Card info online and I've had no problems. Good company with good products. I highly recommend them. And before anybody asks, NO, I don't work for them or have any affiliation at all. Just a customer.

vote-for1vote-against

I am in for one. My first mystery box ever hope I get something decent. I could use on of those survival shovels.

vote-for1vote-against

It could be worse; I could get some t-shirts =/

crosses fingers for gas mask/machete/shovel/vest/knife (lol - not in a million years; but I can dream can't I...)

vote-for1vote-against

I went in for 6! So give us something good! no compasses! lol

vote-for1vote-against

@dravack: Paypal is telling me that the Plug in is no longer available. Perhaps it's no longer offered, but still works for those who used to have it? I'd probably order at least one box if Paypal worked though. :(

meh... in for 2. Send me something illegal. No one has to know but me and you BK.

@kirika: If you still want it secured and protected like paypal then I can send you an invoice for what you want through Gpal.

Just shoot me a "contact us" with what you want.

vote-for1vote-against

by the way...how is this shipped?

vote-for1vote-against

Me too! If it used paypal I'd order!
