That Was Quick...

...or at least I am thinking that was quick. The quick I am referring to has to do with a UPS delivery attempt notice I got today when I arrived home from work. It said UPS tried to deliver a package requiring an adult signature to my home today but no one was around to accept it. When I did some checking on their website I see the package was sent from Illinois. The only thing I have ordered recently from Illinois was a Mosin Nagant 91/30 rifle I ordered from RGuns. I ordered that late afternoon on the 10th. It is now the 13th. Wow, if the place I ordered that from can get a rifle out that fast what is wrong with all these other online gun dealers who all to recently have been claiming they have a two to three week backlog on their orders? I am hoping that when I pick up the box, yes I arranged for it to be held at UPS so I can pick it up at my leisure, it will contain a very good to excellent condition rifle as I ordered. If that is the case, and if it is in good working order, well that will have been the best online order I have ever placed for anything.

I suppose I'll have to pick up some non-corrosive ammo for it this weekend (as in current manufacture) at
Big Al's Gun and Premier Knife Show up in Danbury. I will have to make sure it is non-corrosive because I pretty much ruined the barrel on my Mosin Nagant M44 using that surplus corrosive crap (which when I bought it was assured it was non-corrosive - yeah right).

All the best,
