    The shipping labels usually have a tracking number on them. The ones I've used before did. As for buying online, I don't like driving 3-4 hours to get some of the stuff I need... Well, we caused enough of a pain in FedEx's you know what that the...

    Yep, the thickness between the grip panels. You are a lifesaver, thank you! :D It is amazing that they are that consistent. It would kind of be interesting to see how well somone like Colt has done with the SAA over it's different generations.

    If so, can you do me a HUGE favor? I'm making a set of grips for someone, and they will wrap around the grip frame. As such I need to know exactly how thick the grip frame is. I don't have access to the gun though, so that makes this hard to do....

    They're still browbeating around. We've gotten into contact with the hub the driver works out of and gave them hell. They called him and he was "too busy to talk right now".

    Believe it or not, that WAS a good deal. That was a $140-$150 PSU that was on sale. Legally that's how things work, but in practice it's a matter of how much of a headache you cause them. Two separate Facebook posts (one on FedEx's page) that...

    For all intents and purposes, no. Your 1911 or your old S&W 27 aren't going to know the difference, ESPECIALLY if you aren't shooting at ranges that would let you see those differences. If you have a custom built precision handgun meant for 100...

    THOSE INCOMPETENT IDIOTS DID IT AGAIN! :mad: Sent in a rebate to Hornady on some free bullets (well, I had to pay shipping, but free enough), and guess who they decided to use to mail $70 worth of 6.5mm bullets? You guessed it, FailEx. Caught...

    Was thinking about just bedding the recoil lug, but if the wood is going to be hogged out, I might as well bed the whole receiver and the first inch of the barrel. Yeah, those cracks were on pretty much every rifle I looked at. One the scope...

    The mount is on the side of the receiver, so the scope is going to be offset to the left. Odd arrangement but I can see why they did it. A LOT of huskys I looked at were drilled for a side mount. The ones drilled for a traditional top mount usually...

    Very rarely and not in years. Only regret one, but absolutely love the gun I got because I sold that one.

    I do factor in shipping, but sales tax tends to balance that out, ESPECIALLY on a more expensive purchase. That $600 gun that can bought tax free online and shipped for $30 is going to have around $50 tacked onto it for sales tax. LGS are...

    I wouldn't pass this off as simple hysteria. That's a dangerous mistake to make. Sure, these metals have always been here. That doesn't mean that it's ok to just let them pollute the land and sea. We don't just pick lead and mercury out of topsoil,...

    My 1943 Husky 46 in 9.3x57mm is finally on the way! Overall, it's in pretty good condition from what I can see. The bluing looks good (80%), the bore was listed as good with some light frosting, and it comes with a side mounted scope base. I...

    We had the seller file a claim. Not sure how that went, but we got our money back. I will avoid FedEx whenever possible for now on.

    I'll pay $20-$30 more. MAYBE $50, but that's pushing it. I like local businesses, but there's got to be a limit as to what's reasonable. Instant gratification and the feeling you get for buying locally is only worth so much. I'll go in and chew the...
