Default Beware of Online Ammo Sites

I have a real bad experience with an ammunition website online.I placed an order March 11th 2010 for ammuntion,and it is now sept 24th and have not recieved my order,the website has stopped responding to my requests for a refund,and the better business bearu cannot get ahold of them either,now they have a BBB rating of "F".I am not sure if I am allowed to share what site it was or not,but I will if that is allowed here.

Looks like it's still open?

Any members live near this place?

Maybe someone should stop in and inquire about their speedy shipments!

That's the outfit that manufactures Miwall ammunition. They produce new and reloads.
They sell their own stuff in bulk and commercial brands as well at gun shows here in CA and at the Reno shows. It's pretty good range fodder and decently priced. The commercial ammo they sell is decently priced as well.

Once or twice yearly they have a sale in Grass Valley, CA which is about an hour or so drive from Sacramento. I haven't gone to it, but it's either a warehouse or a manufacturing facility. However, knowing CA paranoia, it's probably just a warehouse.

I realize this doesn't solve the problem, but it's some background on the company.

In the past what has worked for me is to file a complaint with the Attorney General in the state this ammo company is located. I remember one time mailing in the money for a replacement set of grips and American Derringer to this day has never sent me my grips- Ass Holes.

Here is my latest response from BBB:

Thank you for contacting Better Business Bureau regarding your complaint. We have attempted to contact the business and asked that they respond. We are disappointed to report that we have not received a response from the company. This company is not a BBB Accredited Business, and has not agreed to work with us to resolve complaints.

We have closed this case as unanswered and it will be reflected in the company's public BBB Reliability Report. Please notify us immediately if the business contacted you directly and resolved the complaint.



Monday will be 7 months since I placed my order with this site.Beware.
