Well I ordered some mags from Tapco the other day and then get an email from them saying that they are no longer shipping any of their products (including catalogs) to campus addresses because of new concerns about school violence and zero tolerance policies. This despite the fact that I have ordered from them to my school address before without problem and doing so violates no rules at my school.

So fuck them, another company that bends over and takes it from a bunch of soccer moms doesn't get my fourty dollars.

Are you in college? High school? Either way, I suggest you pay attention in class because it's spelled FORTY dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I learned this in the 3rd or 4th grade?

I weep for the future.

A) Tapco does not suck; I picked up a pile of HK MP5/94 mags from them for DIRT cheap, like $9/mag, and they were better than advertized. I also picked up 12 East German AK74 mags, in EG pouches, for dirt cheap, and 8 of them/2 pouches were NIW!!!!...worth a fair chunk of change. Yah, some of their products are less than par, but you can pick that up by reading the descriptions.


B) Why would you put your school address down? Just write down street address and box number, or suite number. No need to get into specifics. I'm sure the local carriers know the address of the place by heart. Yeesh.

I've bought from 'em and if they had something of interest I'd buy from 'em again...

Its a college, fourty, haha, and I did put the street address down. Unfortunatly the street is Campus Avenue so they made the correct assumption.

And you are correct, they have a lot of good products and good deals. I've bought from them in the past. I'm just pissed off at their super-PC business practices.

They don't deliver to Massachusetts (my family home). Another stupid PC practice that has nothing to do with the law. (Or maybe our Attorny General's Faggy practice of intimidating out of state retailers with lawsuits.)

+1

I bought 20 MP5 mags, though they were more expensive at 12.99 each. These were the strait HK mags. Works flawlessly out of my MP5. Wish they had more at that price!

Freepster , I dont know you and I dont owe you,but if you really want them I can help.

I like TAPCO, and would be willing to recieve them for you , then send them to you.You would only pay me shipping cost.

---Arfcomers need to help one another , not tease about mispelled words.---

IMO, they have good service and a good business ethic, but you have to watch the product... They sell both medium and low quality commercial stuff in addition to milsurp gear in various condition. As long as your expectations are in line with the product ordered, you'll be satisfied. Just don't expect that Leapers rebrand to be an ACOG.

A glowing recommendation. I can't wait to order some garbage.

No sadly, my campus doesn't let you live off campus until you are a senior and all the seniors I knew graduated last year.

I think I will just order from another source. However, the thought did cross my mind to just order to my name at a incorrect street address on campus (maybe to a field house or something). I figure tapco would probably ship to this address and the college (its pretty small) would eventually get the package to me.

How many students go to your college? Proposition every senior female- "Wanna shack up?" If you ask 1000, at least one will take you up on it and you can have them shipped to her apt. Plus you get some pie.
