    Magnum Boots where to get online or in canada?

    I have been happy with domsoutdoor.com, excellent service.  Landed here in NS the cost was $150, plus 16 shipping, plus 28 duty/taxes for 2 pair of magmun stealths and never waited more than 7 business days.  Great that our CDN buck is pretty well on par.
