    WOW YIKES and Holy Crap! My new gun is going to be delivered today and I sat up most of the night watching not football, not basketball not even soccer - but the UPS web site tracking my gun! Screaming at my computer come on get moving you're sitting in Chicago way to long, rooting for UPS to get my gun moving closer to me faster, like it was my computers fault! Finally decided to go to bed and couldn't sleep! What does this mean? Do I need counseling or is this truly an addiction? Will I have to buy another new gun next month to start this all over again? Just kidding but it is a great feeling!

    Pretty good bait.. but I'll bite.. I think everyone here has felt a bit of anxiety over their new baby being shipped.. Add the excitement of a new gun.. especially if you've saved up over time to purchase it.. OR.. a "Special" gun you've searched for.. you finally found. I don't think it gets any easier as you get older..

    The only cure is to buy face to face with a dealer.. or person selling the gun.. and take it home with you.. I just bought a barrel from Rich Bullard.. and once he told me it was comming in Wednesday..I was like a little boy waiting for his puppy to come home..LOL..

    Good luck with your new arrival.. All Good.. Mike

    A few months ago I was waiting same as you for a gun that I had completely rebuilt to be delivered. When UPS got here the driver even wanted to see it so he waited along with my wife while I unwrapped it. It was beautiful. My wife looked at it and said "you know I think I would like a Ljutic too", the next day she got hers, it’s on her finger and it came from the local jewelry store.

    It's a wonderful feeling to anticipate something like it was Christmas as a kid again. It's sad to lose that when we have too much and get jaded.

    Been there and done that. No matter what the gun cost, I always feel like a kid at Christmas. Good luck with the new gun. Marc

    UPS is union. They don't listen.

    Maybe I'm just getting older, but when I order something I really NEED, I finish it with "and can you send that next day air?" I know it costs more, but jezzz! I hope you enjoy your new gun and shoot good with it!

    Superump, I know the feeling for sure! I ordered a new A-10 American a year ago last Oct. Knew it wasn't coming the next week, but over a year-I really need some sleep! I paid for it all up front also. Mike
