    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!:confused::mad:

    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! :cool:

    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? :confused: 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!
    :rolleyes:

    With a purchase as large as yours, you could have got a sweatshirt!

    I think I'll have to PM Mr. Joe Bob and see if I can get a IOU hoody!

    Well there goes that idea per the site:

    "*Only one coupon code per order allowed.
    *Free Apparel offers not retroactively applied"

    UPDATE: I just did a JoeBob live chat with the following results:

    Debi:
    Hello Canebrake

    canebrake:
    Do you offer discounts for FFL 03, Vets, Clubs?

    I am a moderator on the FireArmsTalk Forum and my members are asking.

    Debi:
    Hello Canebrake We do offer discounts to FFL's using the coupon code "FFL". It is a 5% discount. Vets also get 5% discounts with the coupon code "THANKYOU"

    canebrake:
    Cool, can I post this chat on my forum?

    Debi:
    i see no reason why not.

    canebrake:
    Can we use two coupon codes on the same order?

    Debi:
    No. We only allow one coupon code at a time. You can always take the one that offers you the better deal, but only one

    Debi:
    The only exception to that is the free hoody. If your order qualifies for it and you want a free hoody but have already used a coupon code, we will have to do that on our end just place a note in your order notes

    canebrake:
    Thanks Debi, tell JoeBob he should check out becoming a vendor on our forum. It's only $50/year and we have well over 30,000 members.

    canebrake:
    Feel free to check out the forum;
    www.firearmstalk.com

    canebrake:
    bye

    Debi:
    bye

    Oh well, I know for next time if I ever place an order with them. I fall into the free apparel is not retroactive category.

    DAMN, now i am saddened! I could always use a new hoody for my workouts at the gym.

    Too bad for them, in a gun loving state like IN and the amount of people that belong to my gym, thats quite a few potential customers they passed on by not just tossing in the shirt.

    Hell, I've exchanged several pleasant e-mails with Joseph (JoeBob) himself at sales@joeboboutfitters.com, I'd give him a shout and see what he can do for you. It's good advertising, I don't see why he wouldn't take care of a good customer. The worst he can say is no can do, you'll never know unless you ask. :cool:
