    Does anyone discount the retail price of $559.95?

    Can't help on the pricing, but that unit looks awesome. If I had an extra $560 laying around I would buy one.

    It's on the way. I was able to negotiate $15 off + free shipping on the basis of customer loyalty. BTW: I just listed my CED M2 here in the Dallas Fort Worth area in case you have a buddy in the area. Perfect condition.

    True but they saved me $30. It's on it's way.

    I'd like to buy one. I've heard nothing but good comments, other than the price! Perhaps in awhile they'll come down.

    Sure hope so for everyone's benefit. IIRC the price I paid years ago for my CED M2 has never come down.

    Too bad Fords weren't the same. In 1925 you could get a new one for $260...

    I still have a TI Datamath calculator, it is a 4 function no memory calculator with an LED display, they were around $150 in 1972 and ran off 6 AA nicads.

    I can get a more compact calculator these days that is powered by light and even has a memory to store numbers for a couple bucks.

    If there were enough demand for the lab radar someone in China would reverse engineer the thing and sell them by the boat load at Harbor Freight for $19.95.

    Labradar is worth every penny. I love mine.

    There's no doubt some other company will soon produce a competing product,
    and probably at a lower price.

    From what I can see, you "need" the optional base. At least for me, I won't put something like that on a bipod at the range for me or someone else to bump into.
    IF I could afford it, I would buy one. What would be nice is if my range had one and rented it out. At least, you aren't going to SHOOT it.

    I read a couple customer reviews that didn't like the base. They recommended the Manfrotto Mini tripod. It's on it's way.

    A friend who has one recommended the same tripod. The labradar (and tripod) is on my list.

    I am getting ready to order one. Since Midway give you 10% for your birthday and my birthday is in May I can wait:)

    BTW, I have a PACT ballistic chronograph that when I turn it on it says "Copyright 1993". It works great. Prints out data. The only real problem is sky screens in Wyoming breeze.

    Midway did NOT apply a 10% Birthday discount. They were running there $10 off $100. They gave me another $5 off + free shipping. BTW I have a CED M2 that I purchased years ago & works great, just not convenient at my indoor range. It's up for sale & will serve someone else well that tests outdoors.
