Ordered some gear on Nov. 11, have received some of my order (partially shipped) but still waiting on the rest. Not blaming Lightfighter.com, they have been professional and polite, but just don't have the goods to ship...

So today makes 2 months which is not that long. What's the longest you have ever waited for something to ship?

ETA: the SHRIKE crowd should take the cake on this...

Dad's been waiting on some backordered merchandise from Natchez since late August or early November. Part of which includes my Christmas present.

I waited like 6-8 weeks for KKF to barrel a reciever and repin the FSB once after I had a big moment of stupidity while trying to do it myself.

I bought a set of Michelin tires about 5 years ago, and they had a deal that you send a copy of the receipt in and you get a "Roadside Emergency Kit" or some such thing. I got the thing about 8 months later. I had completely forgotten about it.

I've never had to wait more than about 4 weeks for anything I've actually paid for. I was trying to order some plaastic model kits from a place in Florida several years ago, and after about 4 weeks waiting for some stuff on backorder, they cancelled that portion of my order and sent what they had in stock. They sent me an email when the backorder stuff finally arrived from Italy, and I completed the order.

In this modern era of computerized logistics, I can't see why distributors will take orders for stuff they don't have solid committments on yet. Of course, the airlines do it every day ...

I'm still waiting for BATFE to send me my tax stamp.

They cashed the check on 9/15 - and I was already impatient then.

It'll be six months soon.

ETA ..... and I'm STILL waiting for that buffalo jerky! How many years has that been now?

Still waiting on those mags I ordered from TAPCO back in Oct/Nov. Guess it's because everyone else ordered from them about the same time too.

My membership was the first half. The personalized arfcom dog tags haven't come yet though.

Been burned enough times to know to ask if an item is in stock before ordering. I hate Waiting.

Back in the spring of 99, I waited over a year and a half for Olympic to ship me an upper and a lower.
They never did get it to me and I had to cancel.

I put an order in back in Sept, I got all in Dec but the last part , a 3 point sling that I was sending to a buddy in IRAQ. As of today I still haven't gotten it or heard ANYTHING from them. Needless to say they have said nothing, never replied to my emails etc. I will never
order from them again. I ended up calling Quantico Arms for the rest. They had it all and shipped APO as well. All my dealings with QA have been A+..

Actually the shipping address wasn't to Marylandistan, so I should be good to go.

I once paid $1500 for an upper. I waited just a shade over 6 months for it. It was worth the wait.
