Well, Breck Gorman shipped my GHE Damascus barrels two days ago and FedEx tracking said they would be here today. But is is 6:30 PM and they are in Connecticut now, not in New Hampshire. Needless to say I will not see them until tomorrow

Breck shipped mine to arrive tomorrow sometime. The FedEx distribution is 1/4 mile down the street from me - let's see what time they get here...

Breck has been very busy lately. I'm glad he's busy but it must be stressful for him.

Thanks for all you do Breck.

Dean, I agree. This is not a reflection on him, just a frustration on the shipping process

FedEx was supposed to deliver a gun here yesterday. No dice. Tracking shows it's on another truck and supposed to be delivered today. Not holding my breath.

My barrels were to be delivered today but are being held at the FedEx facility down the road from my house and won't be delivered until the weather improves. I telephoned FedEx and said I want to pick them up myself. I'm expecting a call back very soon authorizing me to pick them up.

Ironically, I just watched a FedEx truck drive by as I was typing this...

It's been over 3 1/2 hours since I spoke with customer service at FedEx when I was promised a call back. So I just telephoned again and spoke with a different customer service representative. This one gave me such a line of BS saying nobody showed up to work today because of heavy snow. The snow started here at 9:00 a.m. and I'm sure everybody reported to work at the local FedEx facility, 1/4 mile from my house, this morning... and the snow stopped almost two hours ago.

So here I sit at the mercy of FedEx for who knows how long...!?!
