Default Driving me crazy!!!

well, after months of research, due diligence and shopping for best pricing i finally pulled the trigger, so to speak.

I hit the buy button @ JoeBobs outfitters on a Palmetto State M4gery!

Now i am sitting and watching the FedUp tracking system and going NUTS. From KS to here its only a 10 hour drive....my package left KS 9a.m. yesterday. They estimate arrival tomorrow!

I can see it now, it will FINALLY arrive, i will go fill out the paper work at Sniperco...and the feds will put a 3 day hold on my purchase!

That's where I got my PSA from, you'll be happy with it I'm sure. Congrats on the new purchase.

Yep, the waiting is the worst part. I had to wait 5-weeks for my RRA upper to arrive from the factory and it's really hard to be patient.

Congrats. on the new rifle! Joe Bob's does a fine job. The fact that they are able to keep guns in-stock and ready for shipment at such great prices is amazing.

Remember, patience is a virtue!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I concur... WTH i didnt know anything about it!!

I REFUSE to purchase items that advertise stores or companies (Rem, Win, Browning, GM , Cabelas etc) but i will happily advertise if they provide me with a cool garment for free...as happened with my newest hat...bought youngest boy a new compound bow for X-ma and it came with a free Winchester archery hat...i wear it all the time!

What the hell causes the feds to put these holds on some people, I have a buddy and his dad who have this happen all the time, it has happened 4 times between the 2 of them in the last couple years. Once was for a S&W 357 the others were long guns, not ARs or AKs either, shotguns and such.

Names that are alike to known felons? Dunno, i have known guys that have this happen to them all the time as well...especialy the past couple years.

As of yet i have never had a wait on any gun. I always use my SS# when filling out paperwork tho and have a completely bleach clean record. That being said, i havent bought a new gun from an FFL in quite a while.

But i just KNOW that now that i have already been waiting (impatiently) for my newest "play thing" they will do me wrong.

1000 rounds of .223 burning a hole in my safe!!!!!

+1 on JoeBobs.

Never dealt with them before, but within a couple hours of me hitting the "buy" tab they had it shipped. Every place around i ask about the PSA i am told 6-8 weeks + lead time and MUCH more expensive than what i gave to JoeBobs. This is why i decided to buy NOW as opposed to waiting until the 17th and the gun show. With my luck i wouldnt find one, or a deal on one at the gun show and then JoeBobs would be sold out.

But now that i bought one i will prolly see one at the gun show for $500!
