    I don't think that you were but. . . . . . . .

    Oh yes they are! How do I know you might ask? Well its because, i purchased one from them that was over five years old. Did I pay full price? Heck no! They (TFS) had a huge sale and advertised it as what it was, a never used helmet that was made 5 years prior. I got it for almost half off the sticker price, I think I paid something like $275.00. Good deal? I thought so.

    Not only does the helmet need a fire to break it in.... so do those trucks! Park em outside for a while or something!

    As of today, it looks as if the Fire Store is started to restock the Sam Houstons a little at a time. Variations that were sold out this time a month ago are now back in stock (NOTE: not ALL variations), however the price has JUMPED. When I bought my newest N6A in Decemeber the regular price for a deluxe model with Bourkes was $612.00. That price has wrisen to $663.00, while a fully decked out model with goggles and Bourkes will now run you $713.00. They currently have them on sale, so if you are thinking about one you might want to get one while they aren't THAT expensive.

    I had heard rumors of the helmets going up in price when they were re-released, so I guess this comfirms it.

    I mentioned it another thread, but here seems as good a place as any....

    If anybody is looking for a Black N6A in size LARGE, brand new with Bourkes and Goggles (So it is NFPA) my local dealer has one in stock and will ship.

    Just putting it out there for anybody who has been having trouble finding one.
