I am trying to get them to allow public access to the website to see pricing. I've talked to Bill, who is one of the founders about the inability of people to see what kind of pricing the membership brings with it as being a huge problem from a logistical standpoint.
BTW, the membership sign-up process doesn't require a credit card number anywhere... At least from what I can see on the website...
I don't believe that they're a fly-by-night company due to the number of local vendors I've spoken with who have discounted pricing for CCBC members. It is a new company, as it was started last year IIRC. Another reason I don't believe that they're a fly-by night company is the two catalogs I received from them. One is a telephone-directory sized book, the other is on CD.
I can post some sample pricing from the membership materials I received this weekend if you would like to see some idea of what their pricing is like. I've done some preliminary checking, and have found that their prices are generally a bit better than what I get from Defender.com's website. There are few items I've found that they were higher than defender.com, but most of the thirty or so products I looked at were the same or better.
I'll pm you about this.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
