Default Fed Ex, UPS and USPS are all working VERY short handed




I just wanted to do a quick post about shipping/delivery times. We have been getting many phone calls in reference to orders & tracking #'s that are not updated and extended delivery times.

Fed Ex, UPS and USPS are all working VERY short handed. Delivery times during these difficult times are longer than usual due to the shortage of people at all these services. Joel and I are doing everything we can to get all orders processed and shipped within 1 business day. Yesterday Joel was here at 5:45am (I'm a slacker and didn't show till 6:30) and we were here till 6:45 last night making sure every order was processed, boxed, labeled and ready to go out.

Please be patient if a package takes a little longer to arrive to you. Please understand if the web site of these delivery services are not updated as frequently as they once were. These delivery people are working their asses off getting packages picked up, checked in and delivered. They are working harder than ever as more packages are being shipped and they are all working with reduced crews.

So keep those orders coming and we will keep getting them shipped every day and they will get to you

Check out our Recent Sales Flyer

We appreciate all the orders and support. Please stay well and safe.

With friends at USPS and UPS, they are not shorthanded; at least not locally and to their knowledge nowhere else down the line.

What is causing the issues is poor handling. I had a packaged scope sent through USPS that made it from Colorado to New Jersey in 2 days (bypassing Indiana), the package sat for 6 days in New Jersey and then took another 6 days in transit to get to Indiana. My only positive was that the package was undamaged.

Everyone that I know of that is watching their tracking is having the same issues of packages going who-knows-where (sometimes clear across the country) before ever even getting to their state.

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.

I've seen/experienced a bit slower delivery than normal, and then I've experienced a surprisingly faster delivery as well, so it is what it is from my viewpoint. While I'm anxious to get whatever I've ordered if it's gun related, I can't change anything other than I should've ordered it sooner. LOL I've rec'd a couple orders from Midway sooner than their "projected" delivery dates by a couple days which is always nice, but again, the world ain't gonna end because it don't get here.
