Gun And Ammo Order Blues

I am having little luck with orders I have placed for guns and ammo lately. First off I ordered a Yugo SKS in new condition from SAMCO last Tuesday night. Then I ordered 500 rounds of 7.62x39 HP, and 500 rounds of 7.62x39 SP from Sportsmansguide.com. The next day i realized I had lost my credit card, the one with which I had placed both orders. Luckily, or so I thought at the time, the credit card was charged for the ammo right away. As for the Yugo SKS, well SAMCO did not charge my card at the time, I suppose waiting until they processed my order.

I called SAMCO last Thursday to say I wanted to give them a different credit card number. They said wait until Monday, and to send an email. I sent them an email. They replied by Friday saying they would call me back this week to take care of the order. No one called yesterday. I called them today. They found my order, and told me they changed the card info. I asked when my order would go out and was told in another 7 to 10 days! I asked why so long and they said it was as if I had just placed my order today. The lady said maybe she could get it expedited. No one else was available, but I will call again tomorrow to see if things can get sped up.

I also saw today, when I checked my Sportsmansguide order status, that the delivery was set today for the ammo. According to the UPS tracking it was on the delivery truck by about 5:50 AM. Funny, it did not get delivered until between 1630 and 1700 (4:30PM and 5:00PM). I checked the box before letting the uPS guy leave to count the boxes of ammo, all were there this time. last time they delivered to me a few boxes of ammo were missing - apparently pilfered by someone who had cut a fine opening in the package then sealed over it to make it look as good as new. Too bad I did not look closer at the ammo boxes. Yes they were all full, but the thing is it was not the correct ammo. I ordered 500 rounds of Wolf 7.62x39 154 gr. SP and 500 rounds of Wolf 122 gr. HP. I received the HP ammo, but in the place of the SP ammo I found FMJ. I just sent an email to Sportsmansguide.com about that. They have a policy of no ammo returns, but they had best accept a return on this since I did not order what they sent to me. Hopefully they will make it right pronto, and hopefully SAMCO will send the SKS promptly so I have something out of which to shoot it all.

All the best,

Take A Moment To Honor Our Veterans...

...whether the veterans you honor be living or dead. Remember what our veterans have done for us: they have served for us, they have helped build and have protected our great nation, they have fought to preserve our rights and liberties, they have shed their blood for us, and many have been maimed or died for us. Next time you see a veteran - why not say thank you. In the meantime keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

All the best,
Glenn B
