    Natchez has really pissed me off

    In the last 2 weeks I have posted notification requests on their site so that I know when an out of stock product is back in stock.
    In the first case,I got the email which was dated Weds afternoon.
    Went to the site:product out of stock.
    I called C/S and was told the product went on sale MONDAY AM and they could not explain why the notice did not go out on Mon. when the ammo went on sale.

    In the second case,the email was dated last Weds(18th) at 7:31PM.
    Went to site..out of stock.
    Called C/S Thurs and was told went on sale Weds 2PM and that emails don't go out till 6PM which was AFTER all was sold out.
    I have a feeling that they are selling to big customers first by phone manually(i.e.they call the customer first and before the site ever shows in stock (if that ever happens) .
    This makes the notification system a farce since all product is sold out BEFORE the emails ever go out.

    Mr."Natchez",if I am wrong,please correct me and I'll apologize on this forum.

    They have been getting worse all the time. Pretty much have written them off.

    Do what I do. I put my cell phone sms email address down as my email. That way I know the minute it's available. My only gripe is that their shipping is insane sometimes for a really small item. They would sell a lot more if they charged realistic shipping charges.

    Have always been happy with their service and pricing in the past so was very surprised by latest events.

    Because I live in Georgia they will not sell to me, which is a stupid policy. I don't know of any other shop/wholesale that has the same type of rule.

    So you are pissed off at Natchez because they didn't notify you soon enough that something was in stock? Interesting. Just don't sign up for their notices and actually do the work yourself. Horrible concept, I know.

    Yeah, their notice system should work faster, but then again I don't recall reading anything that says they will notify you with in X amount of time of the materials being in stock, just that they will notify you when they are in stock.
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.

    Of course,you can go online to their site every 20 minutes all day long.My complaint was that if the emails go out when the site switches to "in stock" but the product is ALREADY sold out BEFORE the site switches, due to pre-placed orders ,that is unfair.

    I signed up to be notified for Hornady Critical Defense .380, got an e-mail and was able to order it 3 hours after I received the e-mail. I think the system works great.

    Glad it worked for you,would just like it to work for me.
    It may be that the caliber matters i.e. 9mm. is more popular than .380 but who knows.

    Last month I signed up for notification and two weeks ago they advised me the items were in stock - they both arrived last week. Real pleased with their service.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    I believe they are suppliers for retailers in TN, GA, and AL. I wish I could buy from them over the counter since I live 5 minutes from them.
