Not waiting for anything. I was prepared!

Why would you assume I was desparate locutus?

The bolt assembly is just a spare part and at the same ol' price.

The place I ordered the ammo from updated me that it was erroneously listed as 'in stock' at the time so they backordered it for me (which they do not generally do) to guarantee me the same good price I initially ordered it for. Two to eight week backorder. With the run on ammo they are down to only a three to five day backlog of processing orders and one to two weeks for shipments to arrive (coupla days to me from where they are). Told them no rush and that I luv 'em man!

I didn't say you were desperate. I didn't imply it.

You asked what folks were waiting for. I said I wasn't waiting for anything. I always keep well stocked up on things so I have no need to wait.

locutus, I know you wrote you were "not waiting for anything." But you're ignoring that you also wrote: "I was prepared[/B]!" Sorry. I read that to mean people waiting for something were not prepared. Desparate. And that's not necessarily the case.

My AR Bolt Assembly arrived yesterday. Only a small percentage of shooters might keep a spare one. I think that's beyond prepared.
