Just a follow up to the discussion about contacting Ed in the old forum: Not only did my wife have no problem with e mail contact, but sent out a check for a barrel about two weeks ago, and the new barrel arrived today, with a letter that included contact information. Excellent service. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again. Heck, I've been a contender owner for a little over a month and only have two barrels! Good thing he sent along a list of current inventory!
