    Not a dumb question at all!!

    The 'life' of the foam is comparable to any urethane product out there. The inner foam, which you may think would be the major worry, is the same "species" as the outer, tougher rubber.

    They will dry out/ crack/peel/age at the same rate as any basic rubber product.

    The only real worry, is that even though it's sealed, the paint may one day start to rub off, crack, or flake. This will all hinge on use, enviroment, abuse, etc.

    In other words . . . these should last as long as an unchewed doggie toy



    Also, for those waiting on tracking, etc. start checking your inboxes at your paypal email's . . .I printed a bunch of shipping labels today!

    Just wondering what "out of paint, shipping" means. Does that mean it's coming unpainted? I didn't understand.

    No info on my side. Comes up as something like "unable to track.'
    This usually means that it's out of USPS hands, and into Royal Mail's.
    Use you customs tracking number at Royal Mail's website, if scanned properly, it should pop up. Knowing UK customs . . .it's probably in a big pile.

    Keep me posted.
    Thanks.


    Also, huge SHIPPED update on the first post! We're almost done!!

    SWEEET! Glad you got it and that you like!

    JP, you'll get a tracking number through your Paypal EMAIL, not your account.

    The next round of shipping is happening Friday, then i've only got 4 left to build. I'm starting to get sick from the fumes

    Great to hear Hotshot!

    Just got word, I'll be out of the country. So I won't be needing it for Halloween, no party for me.

    Thx, can't wait to see it when I get back!

    I'm pumped to get it. My luck hasn't been good as of late with receiving things, so I'm just a little stressed. I'm sure it'll look good, I just hope it doesn't get lost or delayed in the mail.

    They're all almost out . . .Just keep watching your tracking numbers!! Hopefully, the post office website will update quickly. Either way, Halloween will be a light blaster day for all of you!
    Thanks!

    Got it, deposited it, and will be catching up this week! The turnaround on your balster will be 10-15 buisness days, but probably sooner.
    Thanks ..
    and I'm keeeping the envelope!!

    This was two weeks ago. My troop date is today. You shipped it yesterday. Congrats!!!

    Workin' on it. I want to be able to send all of them out at once at the end of the week. you'll get it before your date!
    Thanks!
    Rhett

    PS-Your PM's are kinda starting to get ridiculous. I can't take the extra time while at work to answer you every time you need an update. I have CLEARLY displayed a hard to kill work ethic on this project, so your nervousness about getting your blaster is unnessecary.
    I'll update as much as possible, okay?

    Also, trying to get your money back when your blaster's been made, and while I've been more than open to communication/updates, and people have been getting their blasters is very, very inappropriate.
    Thanks.

    Its nice to know that a paying customer is so annoying to you Rhett for asking for updates.

    Thank goodness my "nervousness is unnessecary"...

    Last group of shipping labels has been printed. As of Monday, this sucker's offically caught up!

    I have no real intention of completly shutting down production of thi cool item, just no more big runs after the ESB. I need a big break . . .I've got a Fine Molds Flacon and Slave I that I'm dying to finish.

    Boomer, your rifle's in the mail, as our the others . . . just keep checking the tracking numbers. Once their outta my hands, I can't do anything but wait to see that sweet word 'delivered' pop up.

    RoddieFett and SandmanUK, I gotta get you your tracking numbers . . .there around here somewhere . . .

    Sorry I've been grossly behind, but real life can really get ya by the boys some times.

    Glad that you all have been able to hang in there with me!! Thanks soo much to so many!

    I didn't see my name mentioned. Will I have it in hand by Halloween?
