Gone, really? I put one in my cart last night (along with some cones) and shot BMS an email asking how much for shipping to .au. I haven't heard back, so I guess that explains that.

Yep, gone.
I went to the website last night to order one and found it was too late.
They literally must have made like 40 or 50 kits.

According to Bill at BMS, a run of 60 kits were produced.

Ok. 60 kits. As fast as they sold out, it had to be an extremely small number.
They could probably easily sell three times this number.

I can't believe they only made 60 kits. I needed just a couple more to make sure
that when I messed one up I would have another one to start over again with.
That's just not right.
