    Mar 9, 2010, 5:08 PM - FPArmor - Those that are waiting for "Body" Armor *UPDATE APRIL 7TH** #1

    Hi everyone,

    For those individuals still awaiting "body" armor as as part of an order or as a complete order -

    There has been a delay. Unfortunately my supplier shorted me on an already delayed order. I apologize for this inconvenience but it is out of my control. This will pose another minor delay in your shipments.
    I have been assured that there will be no further errors and that it will be expedited for my troubles. This is only the second time there has been a blunder like this by my supplier in 5 years, but to error is human as we all know.

    It's not a huge deal, but I wanted to make sure that those waiting are aware. This of course does not include Helmets or Gauntlets. Not all individuals will be affected and some has already shipped. Those who's orders consisted of miscellaneous pieces as opposed to full kit orders are really only those affected.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Chris

    "Stuck" in NM? Dude, that's harsh... Okay, maybe not so much, depending where in NM you are. Up here in Albuquerque, things are kicking...

    C'mon guys? Seriously ? What else do you expect I would be doing ?

    You guys really think I'm bailing on you or something ?

    Let us not forget, some of you have *Free* parts that are shipping with your orders as well. This takes time too

    Updates have been provided.

    Thanks for your patience.

    I missed out on the plastic green grass - but I ALMOST actually did that !!!

    Ok, so onto the biz at hand !

    Just a small update on progress. We're caught up to February.
    February and March member orders are much fewer so it will
    all go VERY fast now !!! Whew !! I know this doesn't look
    caught up, but believe you me, in contrast to the wall I was banging
    my head against, we're so caught up that we haven't caught up
    with ourselves yet

    So, here are a few moor that went out today. Please allow up to
    24 hours for U.S. orders to register, and up to 72 hours for International
    orders to register. I'm posting them this time to try to save a little time
    I don't want to loose any ground now that the momentum is gaining !

    A note about replacement parts orders -

    Anyone waiting for a replacement part SHOULD be
    going out by Saturday.

    I want to thank everyone AGAIN for their patience. As always,
    you folks are the best.

    I'm also posting this in the Helmet thread as well so no one misses it

    BACK TO WORK, I know, I know

    Best,

    Chris

    Just a note about the tracking number guys ...

    A few of the tracking numbers were wrong and have been updated. So if you haven't already, please use the updated numbers to check.

    I've explained this privately to some members here and there but most of you may not know ...

    I'm in a VERY rural area. Imagine, "Northern Exposure" Not far from the truth. A small mountain town @ 5000ft. 70 Miles from the nearest city in any direction.
    Our post office is VERY small, AND ... roughly 15 miles from my shop. I use a "Mom and Pop" store to ship my goods. Imagine, "Mail Boxes Ect." I hold an account
    with them. They are much closer to me than the Post Office. Essentially, I let them use their gas and time to deliver items to the actual Post Office. What this means
    si, they gather packages from whomever drops at their facility, and they move them to the Post Office - sometimes every other day because they build up a load before
    heading out to the Post Office. This is why I always tell everyone to allow up to 2 days in some cases before the Tracking ID' s show up as active on-line. So for future
    reference, if anyone asks and I'm not available to answer, maybe someone can clue 'em in I know this is no one's fault but my own for never making an announcement
    about it. It was long over due. But I've been doing things this way for years

    So, in some cases, like today, I found that the "Mom and Pop" place I use, didn't use the delivery confirmation slips I attached to the packages. When they made their delivery
    to the Post Office, the Post Office had to provide a few new ones. It happens from time to time. No rhyme or rhythm.

    So, all that being said ... rest at ease my brothers and sisters. It's public and official. If I haven't said it enough, I'll say it again. I always come through for you

    Best,

    Chris
