    I bought 20 clips for my M44 from a guy.. paid via Paypal. This guy takes 2 days to respond to my emails before payment asking him to give me a final total with shipping.. I finally get told shipping is free, so I paid him on Jan. 16th, and asked him to fire me back an email to acknowledge payment and then to email me a tracking number when the package gets sent.

    It's now the 21st, and he hasn't even replied since I sent the payment & that email on the 16th..

    Fucking ridiculous. :mad:

    I've had that happen before, asking them to send me a payment and shipment confirmation. Usually it just shows up my doorstep :rolleyes: Oh well, hope yours shows up.

    I've found that alot of the gunbroker people are the older generation not used to the same speed and practice that we have with ebay.

    The least he can do is fucking reply to my emails and tell me so.

    I'm about to just make it an issue with Paypal and get my fucking money back.

    Good luck with that. They will probably want to know what you are buying, and they will probably not refund because you are using their company to pay for gun stuff.

    "Brass clips" is a fairly ambiguous term.

    A lot of us sit at jobs that allow access to email all day, every day. Some of the older folks just aren't in that habit and may only check email once a day, once a week, whatever.

    :werd: They may also lock your account for no real reason at all, other than the fact that you were using it to buy gun related items, which they frown upon.

    +1.

    Those old guys never check their e-mail & never respond even after they just cashed a very large check from you. I just have to learn to be more patient.

    I had to scowl at my father for ages to get him to check his e-mail AT LEAST twice a day. I said that even that was less than what people expected. My grandfather? Forget it. He can't even turn the computer on, but that's fine. He's deserved being less caring about that stuff at his age.

    Two or three years ago I opened a website to show my grandma some pictures from a trip I took and I was amazed to find out she had never used a computer before. It was so funny trying to watch her use the mouse :rofl:

    Dude, it's only been a week since you paid him. Old people are slow, and the mail is slower.

    I just expect a certain level of communication and swiftness when it comes to online transactions.

    They arrived today in a bubble-wrapped package and work just fine.
