    On The Path...

    Went in to the local shop on Sunday and $700 later, I've got a P99 A/S heading my way.

    What sucks is that they're not going to process the 10-day wait until the gun arrives at the shop...I don't quite understand why the two things can't be happening concurrently.

    And now I must call and yell...for I got a message on my phone last night saying, "The note from Evan (the owner) says P99 Quick Anti-Stress, but they only have Quick Action and Anti Stress, so I ordered you the Quick Action...should be in on Wednesday."

    Now, I called this woman yesterday afternoon (prior to this message) and specifically said that I wanted to make sure they were ordering me the Anti-Stress.

    *grumble*

    Major bummer. Talk about a kick in the twig and berries.

    I don't recall from where they were ordering it...I did talk to them about 3 times today to make sure that every person in that shop knew that I wanted the A/S, not the Q/A.

    Yeah, well, cost of living is higher in CA...so I guess they figured, why not the firearms as well?

    Yes, we Californians get nailed hard in the firearms arena. I am just setting up my first out of state transfer now and they make it a real pain the 6 O'clock. It's like they don't want me to buy the gun even though I will shoot it at their range AND buy ammo from them. Worse, it's not like I didn't already ask them to stock the guns I'm buying. They said they weren't available anymore so i found them myself.

    The SNAFU with the order has delayed everything. I called on Saturday to inquire as to the status and was told that when they got it, they would let me know. If I don't hear from them by Wednesday I'm going to go in and talk to the owner to find out what, exactly is taking so long.

    They got their money 8 days ago, but 3 of those were non-business days (since I ordered on a Sunday).

    I figure they ordered the wrong one, and then waited for the return to go through before ordering the right one.

    That's why I'm willing to wait until Wednesday before I follow-up again.

    O.K., it's Thursday. What's the news?

    Not sure why I'm so intrested, but it seems like others are to. Almost like it's now a quest for you to get this gun

    Wait till he finds out he has to wait 10 days from the time the shop gets the gun for his waiting period and that's business days. I feel for you Dood. I hope I am wrong. Good luck.
