    It is true... White Flyers will be $11.00 a case.

    Our supplier here in Rochester just raised prices Friday to close to $11.00 per case as stated above. This is for White Flyer. They said White Flyer had to raise the price as they were not making a profit at the old price. If oil goes higher and trucking costs go up both of those will also impact the price later this year. You may be looking at $13.00 to $14.00 per case.

    And that's probably if you can get them. The primary pitch supplier is down right now (I was told it blew up), and no one can get pitch. Lawry currently has no targets to tell.

    Things are going to be rough all over this summer.

    I just got a quote for the next pallet load for the club; Lawry's are $9.75, and going up higher on the next order. Of couerse it is due to oil prices...again.

    It appears that everything is going up these days, that type of increase will no doubt effect the price of practice as well as registered shooting ... I was told by a person who predicted much of the price increases quite accurately that "you ain't seen nothing yet" ... Its probably Bush's fault ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    How do Champion targets compare to White Flyers in price?

    How does the quality compare?

    RE: Champion targets

    Like shooting at rocks. Don't fly well in the wind...

    Joe, you know that's not true. When Champions are shot at two or three times and have several holes in them, they fly just fine. Champions are a reusable target.

    Have had poor results with Champions. placed an order with Lawry today they are up $1 case $9.75 White Flyer was $11.50 cse on all orange.We are having a shoot in April was told WF would be more if they had any. we can not afford to not have targets and cancel a shoot. Used lawry in the past good targets. Lets face it a target is a target hit it and it breaks no targets and I am stuck watching pistol shooters shoot at paper plates.Thanks Lawry for the targets

    Target pricces are up! It is a fact!!! Heard this at the Spring Grand that they would be going up. It is not that they were not making a profit, it is because their cost have increased. As a business you can only absorb so much.
    If fuel prices increase significantly you will see fuel surcharge on shipping expense.

    Called our supplier today, and was told WF went up $1.00 a case, and shipping costs were at $2.60 plus $.60 fuel sur-charge per highway mile. $3.20 a mile for shipping.


    I'm worried!
