    Well Guys if finally happened! I got a tracking number from BOHICA.

    For all of you who follow this thread, I decided to start another instead of posting at the end of a long thread.
    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=377863



    Now UPS does not have a record of the shipment yet, but hopefully tomorrow it will be in the system.

    For the record, I ordered on Sept 10, 2007 and paid in May of 2008.


    I will keep you all posted with pictures when it gets here.

    That's great news.

    I ordered one in Nov. '07, IIRC, and paid up earlier this month.

    Hang in there guys, they may be coming soon.

    Unfortunately it seems that mine did not make the shipping dates, I keep getting this UPS message when I try to track it.




    I have a bad feeling that it might not ship until Monday at the earliest due to the holiday. But I console myself with the thought that I am one step closer than I was last week.:scrutiny:

    You'll forget about the wait the first time you pull the trigger!

    You'll spend the rest of the day trying to get this look off of your face.:D

    50 Shooter you are not helping with this. Comments like those make the wait seem real long...............:):):):)

    Ok, update. Today I got the notice that the billing information has been processed.


    Still no word if it has actually left the building. With a little luck it will go out today with the 3:30-4:00 pick up by UPS.




    I am sure there will be more to follow..............

    Any of you guys get your notices? Still no indication that UPS has picked anything up from over there.

    The wait and uncertainty is getting annoying.

    Being a Friday, it is likely just sitting in a truck after being picked up waiting for Monday to come around to get processed.

    Wow, how long have they had your money for, 6 months? That is a funny way of doing business, though I guess you do what you have to if you really want something.

    I had a Serbu BFG .50 a few years back and it was fun though I can't imagine now with the price of ammo the way it is.

    Don't they scan all packages with the hand held bar code reader when they pick them up? I kinda thought it would be electronically tracked from when it enters UPS custody to delivery. It's been a few years since I worked there, but I think we worked on weekends.

    Besides the fact that the original shipping notice was on 11/25. Do they charge extra for the "BOHICA buying experience". You know when you usually buy things much of the fun is in the research, anticipation, and waiting. Maybe BOHICA figures all this waiting and anticipation is an added value :)

    IIRC, the scan at pick up is for billing purposes. You don't get that Package Progress tracking detail until it gets scanned at thier facility (when it gets pulled out of the truck) and it starts to get sorted and shipped.

    EDIT : Forgot that the initial post was on 11/25. Maybe it is still sitting in BOHICA's garage waiting to be picked up. The UPS sticker (with tracking number) already on the package.

    [Or, hopefully not the case, they just gave you a tracking number from one of the stickers in their stack and it isn't ready yet.]

    MrBill120, I ordered a 30, but I think I agreed on a 24 at time of payment. Any length will be fine, just as long as I can finally get it.

    So they started the shipping process on the 25th of november and the boxes didn't leave there until today?

    That's uhhhh..... pretty bad I guess is the only word I can think of. That's 2 full weeks.

    Hope it gets to you soon.

    Thanks TexasRifleman, I am getting tired of the delaying tactics. He realized that a small comment, or something like giving the tracking numbers, then wait a week or so and turn in the numbers for billing can buy him a few weeks before the masses start revolting again. Easy answer is to get the product out when it's promised, but that horse has been beat into the ground so many times with this purchase.

    Congratulations on 9K posts.
