I put an order into Essential Arms a few weeks ago, and ran into a snafu with my regular FFL, and had to get another FFL to send paperwork to get my lowers coming, which delayed everything.  After not seeing the lowers yet, and looking up and finding that Krotz Springs is in south central LA- -pretty much directly in the eye path, I thought I would call and see what was happening.

Finally got through to someone today (the owner I assume), and asked how he was doing- -"lost 8 big trees between the road and the shop, phone service is spotty, and we don't expect to have power back up until Sunday or Monday."  He said that the shop and inventory came through ok.  They've been without power since Gustav came through Sept 1st, and was delayed on his cleanup efforts due to the live power lines under the 8 big trees on his driveway- -the power lines were still live, so they couldn't remove the downed trees until the power co shut off the power.  UPS can't deliver to him yet.

Very personable guy, in spite of his situation, he wanted to check into my order!  I told him that he has more important things to do, and I'll call back in a couple weeks.

Thought I should update the hive on the situation- -seem like good people in a tough situation.  He's hoping to be back in operation Monday.
