Anyone know anything about this company? I ordered some magazines from them on December 19 and I have not received a charge on my credit card or any shipment notices. Should I be worried?

Place is run by an arfcommer - Garand_Shooter isn't it?  Shoot him an IM or post in their industry forum.

If he's anything like the rest of the shooting world, he's probably slammed busy.

Buy with confidence.

I wouldn't sweat it. He's probably just slammed.
Link Posted: 12/27/2012 10:09:53 AM EDT
Hell I believe he's a resident arfcomer from over on Survival Forums.................Let me check...
Link Posted: 12/27/2012 10:12:19 AM EDT
I have ordered a thing or two and thought was excellent service.  But that wasn't during the Christmas rush. I would be confident you are in the stack.

You pretty much summed up my experience with them the one time I ordered from them - slow to charge/ship and no comms after order was placed.  Items did eventually show up though, so you should be ok.
Link Posted: 12/27/2012 10:20:07 AM EDT
I forgot to mention that the reason for my concern is that the phone has been disconnected.

Don't worry. You will get your stuff. I ordered some jerry can gaskets and it took 16 days to get them.

He just a little.....old and grouchy.

My dealings with him have all been good!
Link Posted: 12/27/2012 10:32:04 AM EDT
I have ordered from him in the past, no problems.

Try dropping Garand_Shooter an IM.





I had a problem also, and it was suggested I IM him. He responded quickly and the issue was resolved ASAP.

It is two days after Christmas. They may very well be closed for the Holidays. If you wanted a fast transaction and fast shipping for something gun related, you picked about the worst possible time. I would be worried they might have run out of inventory but if they are still shipping orders it isn't going to be quick.
Link Posted: 12/27/2012 10:44:17 AM EDT
He is GTG.

Probably busy since its the holidays and all...

I have an order there also that hasn't been charged. I just figured they were closed for the Holidays.

My order was for the G3 mags. I was hoping to know if my order will be filled or if I need to try and get some before everyone is sold out.

I'll vouch for the Grouch. But he does work on his own time.

We are working through the rush of G3 mag orders as fast as we can- we don't charge a card until the day we ship so you won't see any charges until then.



Hey you got any USGI 30 round mags in stock?

I said I was using as few a possible- even I admit you can't get rid of everything because they have a lock on some things.

For now.

That said at the time I kept AT&T for our main line at that time because you couldn't keep a yellow pages ad unless you did. At this point that is rapidly becoming a non- issue because who uses the damn yellow pages anymore.

20+ minutes on hold with AT&T as intupe this, for the third time is making me say screw that, not worth it.



You're dealing with the non union farmed out workers. You know, the guy named Apu who calls himself "Fred" or "Bill" when you call.

Is that a technical term??

I have ordered some ALICE stuff from him and AR ammo repack kits. They are GTG. Probably overwelmed right now, along with everyone in the industry.

I know it has been said.  He did put a note of facebook that his phone line is messed up by AT&T.     He is a good guy no issues.
Link Posted: 12/27/2012 1:24:54 PM EDT
He is one of only 2 businesses I have endorsed on my blog.

That tell you anything?

This. I have known him personally since high school. He's a stand up guy.

AT&T disconnect order, that explains a lot.  Holy shit man just be glad they didn't burn the place to the ground.  I swear they find the most disgruntled customer service rep they can, beat them with a car antenna, starve them, and make them watch snuff films for weeks until they feel like they're completely deranged.  Then they put them in charge of disconnect orders.
