Orders shipped from China

If you have things shipped from China (and who doesn't these days-much better prices!) try to get it shipped via the carrier EMS. Not sure about US but here in Canada there is very little cost and it is delivered to my door by Canada Post. For example, a receiver shipped from China cost me $4.99. Last week I had an order shipped from SIG in US and UPS total cost was $87.00 for an order of $123.00 They charged SIG $40.00 to pickup-and added another $47.00 before I could have it delivered; and BTW-the customs duty was only $9.47 (and is not included in that $87.00) YES-that is THEFT and we are all too familiar with that !
With theft like that going on-is it any wonder why our economy is going down the drain. So I now order all from China and have it shipped by EMS.
