    Someone stole my magazine!

    I picked up a Promag backup for the wife's p238; tried to use it and realized it was defective. After calling promag it turns out the mag was recalled b/c of a change Sig made to the pistol. They offered to swap it out for a new one.

    I dropped the mag in the mail to them, and I just got my package back from the post office with their "apology" for the "damage" to my piece of mail. It is very obvious that someone ripped open the package and took the mag. I'm guessing they knew Promag Industries and they fig'd they had a quick score.

    I contacted Promag, I'm curious to see what they do. I told them I don't expect them to fix the Post Office's error, and in reality I don't; but IMO since the product was being recalled it was just going to be discarded anyway (that's what they put in the email when they sent me the RA#). I'm hoping they offer to make it right, we'll see what happens!!

    Bottom line: be careful when you mail stuff. I shoud have written "PRODUCT RECALL" or "BROKEN PRODUCT" on the package to deter theft. Oh well....live and learn.

    You should file a claim with the Post office. Even if they don't find the mag (which is very likely), it will put them on notice that something disappered. Maybe it will eventually help them weed out the bad egg.

    A rational person would have figured out it was defective product anyway... why else would somebody mail a mag back to Promag?

    I have nothing good to say about the USPS. Our local office takes incompetency to levels I've never seen before. I suspect our local postal workers for many of the missing packages that our community experiences.

    Aren't promag mags disposable anyway?

    I have some and if they start to fail they will probably go into the trash since they were bought for range use only and only for "fun" guns.

    Hope the new mag you get works like it is supposed to.

    A rational person doesn't steal from an organization that has it's own law enforcement agency....

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    A rational person wouldn't risk a cushiey decent paying job for a $20 mag.

    The Postal Service uses machines that sometimes destroy letters and packages. If an employee stole your mag, they would have disposed of the wrappings. You would not have seen the "damaged" package. Valentines day coming up reminds me of seeing letters containing small candy hearts go through the sorting machines. The machine will destroy not only that envelope, but also the next 10 or 20 behind it. If either address is still legible, the mail piece is placed in a plastic bag with an apology and sent on it's way. Out of billions of mail pieces, the destroy rate is very small. But it does happen.

    The only organization I know of that increases prices to buy more "This Line Closed" signs.
