    Not to brag, but just paid $75.00 for a 8# sealed jug of Red Dot from a Buddy in California that no longer reloads. Also picked up some Solo 1000 for $100.00 for 12#s.

    I had a very similar deal on active wads all I had to do is pay shipping. I sent the check and it took over a month to show up and it never had a post mark. So it is possible. I sound up sending a second check that only took a few days to receive. 1st check just got tore up.

    In today's World? Yes!!! Its a shame though.

    I remember when I first sighed on here at TS.com. I started out shooting Trap with a Wingmaster. I found a nice barrel for it here at a good price. I had other members send me a free stock weight for it. Another member set me Free hulls in 410 bore as well. There were many shooters here trying to help a new forum member like me. Unfortunately we are not living in that same world any longer. There are still some good people on this site though. Send this guy a PM as a reminder. See what he does. Maybe he just caught up in a life event? Good Luck to Ya. break em all Jeff

    Thank you Jeff,
    Believe it or not, I've already sent him two PM's. It is what it is, sad though.

    I had some Perrazi trigger springs show up one month slow. Tracking went dark in 3 days so I arranged a reorder at no charge that came in three days. Low & behold a month later out of nowhere the original order arrived. Which I mailed back to the vendor, dont know if they made it or not.
    FedEx through this BS has been nightmarish as well. Amazing the havoc a little germ warfare can wreak on our logistics.

    Well All, It's obvious that the following Forum Member, that I sent the Free wads to, has NO intentions of paying the shipping charges as agreed to.
    This is the LOW LIFE that was the recipient of the FREE wads.
    I would definitely question any dealings you might have with this LOW LIFE!

    All he does here is buy and sell, not participating whatsoever. Maybe a MOD needs to see this.

    @George MT. @OSOKILL

    Yep I tattled on him, big deal!

    He's selling an XT barrel on here now...

    Not too sure I'd send any loot to him.

    In all honesty, I hope MG gets his postage, just for the principal, I am sure MG isn't filing bankruptcy because of it, but he is owed it.

    I also hope that this low life is banned permanently. Do we really need these types on here?

    I was going to say about a knife I had bought and it went back and forth three times to a town 10 miles south of me and the distribution depot before it finally got to me. The mail can be bad, but in this case it's the recipient. Why would somebody not pay for something sent to him for free ? I just don't understand how some people operate in today's world.

    A few words come to mind Paul.
    "LOOSER - LOWLIFE - SCUMBAG"
    I could go on.
    He must need the lousy $20.00 way more than I!
    Happy 4th,

    Sucks when you do someone a solid & in return get a sharp stick in the eye. Not a lot of money but rather the principle. You'd think to expect some honor among our members.

    Happy 4th,
