[NRVR-Members] Group Motor Buy?

Yeah, it's interesting; I haven't seen any shortage of AT or CTI reloads,
but I am seeing shortages of AT motor tubes.  My understanding is that,
essentially, they do a run, it gets sold out, then they're backordered for
a few months until the next run.  Of course, that could just be Internet
rumor.  Chris seems to have plenty of 29 and 38mm CTI and AT reloads, and
even seems to have a good stock of 18 and 24mm reloads.

I've never ordered from Wildman, and I'm not sure exactly how their website
works (it's unclear if things are in-stock or not), but they have quite a
few listed.

Apogee (admittedly not the cheapest, but they do have good service) seem to
have a decent selection of CTI in stock, and most of their AT
motors/reloads are showing available.

I just looked at Performance Hobbies (no experience ordering from them),
and, yeah, they're pretty much showing out of stock on everything CTI,
except a 38mm vMax, and I think everyone knows how I feel about those
things ... :)

So, yeah, they're out there.

Hmm, one thought just struck me; I know you've ordered from
BuyRocketMotors.com in the past; as far as I know, they don't carry CTI, so
that could be part of the issue?

And, back to the original question: is anyone interested in doing a group
