they did to me, via Fedex, and I'm guessing they know what they're doing, so: yes.

It's amazing, isn't it, how torturous the waiting can be? Especially, I'm sure, with pretty gun like that! Give us a picture when it comes in!

well considering you arent buying the gun then its no big problem in most states. cause all the paperwork has been done when you bought the gun. yea things could have changed between the purchase and the shipping....but the gun is leagaly yours and registered so if something did happen it could still be tracked to you

Yes, they do it regularly. The problem lies in the shift in the
space-time contiuum....upon receipt of the notification of return, the normal 24-hour day becomes 14,326.2 hours....and ritual demands that you spend most of this time staring out the window looking for the FedEx truck, which WILL NOT arrive until you finally take a pit-stop and are fighting your belt buckle when the doorbell rings.

I am currently taking a course of antibiotics, to counteract pneumonia contracted whilst standing in the rain by the mailbox, awaiting three holsters and a knife, simultaneously. My postman, a fellow shooter and knife knut, no longer puts the mail in the box. He throws it out the window in the general direction of the driveway, and firewalls it to the next house. Maybe it's the "thousand yard stare" you get from all the waiting :scrutiny:

LOL, that's funny. I send holster orders all over the country, and believe me I know. Some guys will send the order one day and three days later, are E-mailin' me, wantin' to know when they can expect to get it.

RJ,us worry-warts are not your usual normal personalities. One maker I buy from lives in the far boonies, and only gets to town on alternate Fridays, to do insured/priority mailings. With his orders, I not only worry through the "time shift" thing, but in the wintertime about such things as "what if he broke an axle"..."what if he was hijacked by a bear"..."what if the bear ate the knife"...Don't get too upset with us. We're happier when we have something to worry about, even if we have to make it up ourselves :p

Yep,mine just came. Got a bank statement I'm afraid to open :barf: , gas bill and seven pre-approved credit card apps. from peope who obviously have no access to my bank statement. No holsters, no knives....Gonna go back out and lean on the mailbox some more on the off chance we might get two deliveries today. I know, I know...never in the hiostory of the postal service, b what the heck :rolleyes:

If you don't mind my asking what kind of knives are you waiting for? I'm a bit of a knife nut myself and enjoy them, folders and fixed both (it is a hobby that does however, make my friends a bit nervous ;)

I too have sent a firearm into the manufaturer and they sent it directly to me as well (Kahr)

Take care,

DRC
