I'm trying to figure out whether it make sense to get PSI bolt action pen in this GB and what would be discount. If you planning to get them can you post here so we can do some preliminary calculation.
I only ask this if this is not against the rules. If I broke the rule then please delete this post.

I don't think it is an issue since it is about this buy and you are part of it - but the others may not see it. I will probably pick up 4 or 5. We will get at least 10% for club.

Is there a reason holding the sale to 15? I'm guessing more than 15 might be unmanageable.

Good guess. Just a good manageable size. I have done 16, so I know that is possible I am sure it isn't a record. CSUSA buys happen frequently, in fact there is another starting now, so there is no need to build and have to manage a large group. A group buy for 15 will likely arrive in two massive heavy 8 cubic foot boxes with all the kits dumped inside. Sorting and figuring out what a 1050910001 is can slow things down a bit. It usually takes all day to get it right, box, print labels, and mail 15 boxes. Now that I think about it, what was i thinking! It is fun in a strange sort of way. I haven't done one since February of last year, so I forgot... I needed some kits and there wasn't a buy open at the moment. Hope that helps.

BTW - we have gotten more confident. When I first joined, the buys were usually 10 and THAT was hard to get into!

Just to be clear, there is no actual maximum number for Group Buy Participants. I have run several myself and know how complicated and time consuming they can be. I have recommended that anyone doing their first few buys limit them to about 10 participants until they get the feel for running one but they can have has may as they want.
