I apologize about the delay with the money order. It was mailed via Priority Mail with delivery confirmation on 11/30 and a delivery attempt was made yesterday, but Purcell's was closed for bluing. 9 days via Priority Mail....unbelievable ( I have the tracking info to confirm this, and will be calling USPS again). I spoke to the local post office, and the 1-800 number for the Postal Service and voiced my disgust and aggravation about this delay. I was told they were experiencing a high volume of mail due to the holiday season, at which point I politely explained to them that I paid $5.60 for a service to ensure the money order made it there in a timely fashion and the " high volume " was irrelevant and merely a poor excuse.
After seeing your posts, I spoke to Ned and he said one way or another, you will have the money today. I'm sorry about the delay and please accept my sincerest apologies. I'm extremely disgusted with USPS right now. I sent a money order the same way to Winchester, Va on 11/17 and it was delivered on 11/19. I figured it would be the same with the money order for your rifle, but I guess not. Apparently from now on I need to send money orders via UPS for consistent service.
I called Ned at 11:38 after seeing your posts. He's aware a delivery attempt was made yesterday and assured me, one way or another he will have the money order today.
Again, please accept my sincerest apologies.
