        coast guard required, make sense, but allows for overpricing of the item.

            Comments about Orion 12-Gauge High-Performance Red Meteor Flares:

            Need to refresh my flares this year as current ones are approaching expiry. On-line price (granted USD) was good so I went to the local store in BC to buy.
            $52.99 CAD!!!!! Even with exchange rate this is a 50% markup over US pricing. All too common a problem with WM pricing in Canada.

                  Comments about Orion 12-Gauge High-Performance Red Meteor Flares:

                  I have carried emergency flares on my boat for years without using them. A few weeks ago my boat came out of the shop for engine repairs. The repairs were faulty, and my engine failed as we headed back when a storm threatened. I used my flares to get another boater's attention and was towed back to safety. I immediately ordered replacement flares, I will never be without them.
