    I've been looking for two myself...tell ya what...If you want to we can go in together and purchase them and split the shipping. It's up to you. I did not see any RSN at Wal Mart yesterday. I'll look again this week sometime.

    I need a couple as well and would be willing to go in on a group buy, if y'all are up for it.

    EDIT: Matter of fact, I'd go ahead and order four while I'm at it...thought about it after I posted and remembered a friend who's getting into hammocking

    well, i'd gladly go in with someone...but how does that work as far as payment? would someone want to bit it and buy them all, then we can pay that person (plus shipping) for the two?

    That's the basic idea, but I don't know how cost effective it would be to do a group buy on a small quantity of the buckles and then have to re-ship them out to each person.

    If it were me, I would contact OnRope (or other source) and check on a quantity discount and do a group buy in bulk. I would be in for a few, maybe 4-6.

    I kept a few on hand for a while and sold them to people on the forum when they asked about them, and that's what I ran into. The buckles are so cheap to begin with ($2) that it wasn't worth paying shipping two times.

    I know that buying 5 buckles might seem like a waste, but they don't sit idle for long. Once you make/mod a hammock, it won't be long until you do another. $10 worth of buckles isn't very much when you consider the cost of other materials.

    If one of the existing hammock vendors were to buy in bulk and resell them, though....

    I bought 2 heavy duty ones. There's no minimum on those. I bought some 'biners too, since I needed 2 more anyway, to justify the shipping.
