    Alright, i'm wondering if i could link two flashes (2 Sunpack 383s) via their SYNC port? Basically could i put one on my hot shoe, have a sync cord run from that one to the second one, press the shutter and have both fire?

    no it will be for portraits in my own house. COULD i use a wire? just asking because the wire i could get around here for cheap and would not have to worry about getting the peanut in time.. (doing this for christmas)

    If my parents when I was a kid can take a day trip to Sandy Hook from Staten Island for the beach you can take a drive to Manhattan or wherever it is located to but a peanut slave from B+H.

    Well you are full of exscuses so just use one flash and let it go. I think there are alot of people on here (even students with no money) who would kill to live as close as you do to B+H.
