    My Baby is missing.

    I'm pissed off. The colt lwt exe I did the work on in this thread:

    http://www.combatcarry.com/vbulletin...ad.php?t=18275

    is lost somewhere in UPS' incompetent system. It was shipped from Mahovsky's where I had it hard chromed and now they don't know where it is. I could choke the next person I see in a turd brown uniform.

    I don't know. I asked how much Mahovsky's had it insured for and they said 500.00. This appears to be my fault for not scrolling far enough down the page, I didn't see the part about extra charges for more insurance.

    What's up with the server? I keep getting this message "The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later." for the last several days. Is everyone getting this or is it just me? It takes me about 20 tries to post.

    salty - the errors are because we are going way slower - server problems and - if you look up top in forums you'll see Bumper is trying to get some funds in so we can move to a dedicated server.

    Hang in for now - hopefully in near future the slow stuff will be history.

    Sorry to hear about the gun missing - that sucks severely. I feel your pain. What is the current time frame tho? Just hoping it'll turn up even if taken longer.

    I should have looked elsewhere about the errors. I'm NOT bitching at anyone by any means, I appreciate the work that goes into the sight. I'm just curious if it was just me or not. I'm just frustrated about the gun.

    The delivery date has been revised twice because it has not been scanned for days and the last time was in penn. I'm hoping it will turn up and some moron ups worker is not practicing his sideways shooting techniques with it right now. I have my fingers crossed because 500.00 would not even get me another stock one, much less the work that has gone into it. Getting UPS to actually honor an insurance claim is a nightmare nayway.

    I hope it gets found. UPS lost a laptop I ordered. After a bunch of phone calls to corporate it turned up at the local place. I think someone was trying to take it.

    $500 will just about buy a Taurus PT1911. Not a consolation, but it is something. They have gotten good reviews from the magazines. I hope this works out.

    Unhappy

    That's rough.

    I ALWAYS insure stuff for a bit over FULL VALUE though.

    I have a cousin that works for ups and hates it and I have a brother in law that worked for fedex many years and quit because he hated it. He worked part time as a driver the whole time because he said the drivers that go full time burn out in a few years. That's in San Diego, don't know if it's jsut them or not.

    I insured it for slightly over the worth value when I sent it there. Mahovsky shipped it back and I didn't even think about it not being insured over the 500.00 mark. I didn't scroll down to the bottom on his price list to see that you have to pay extra for extra insurance.

    I think I would complain to corporate, threatening to call ATF if it is not found soon. Might get em a bit more urgent to find it.
