    I was expecting my Mosin Nagant to be delivered today. I called the place I bought it from (Inter Ordnance) and I got the tracking number from them. Then I went on the FedEx website and checked it. It showed it as already making a delivery attemp but failing. At this point I'm kind of confused.

    So I call FedEx and ask them what is up with the package. They get some information from me to authenticate. Then they say it is going to 109 xxx xxxxx. Im like :ugh: no. Its going to 109 SOUTH xxx xxxxx. The guy says, well thats alright well just change it. Im like no, its not alright. Theres a damn rifle in there and you almost gave it to a stranger. Couldve even been a kid that may have signed for it. At this point I hear the operator go "Oh, shit"

    Hes like 'Ill get this straightened out right away!"
    Then I called just a couple of minutes ago to see if they changed the address. They did. :bigthumb:

    Hopefully it actually gets to me on the 5th. :x:

    It took the mail 9 days to get it to the wholesalers.
    Now this bullshit with the wrong address. What next?
    Im most probably going to go through J&G next time.


    PS - Its a Mosin 91/30 from 1942-1944. Excellent condition with an extra $20 excellent bore. $63.95 for rifle and $11.58 for shipping. For a total of about $95

    I know its being delivered to the right city/state. Its currently in the warehouse for the st louis hub. They used my zip to confirm authenticity of the call

    A block here is maybe 3 or 4 houses wide. I think it was about 4 blocks down. I dont know who lives there.

    The town I live in.

    Its like an hour drive from here to St. Louis. I would rather just wait for the package. Im not too familiar with the industrial part of St. Louis. Just the main part. IE Busch stadium, Savvis center, Lambert air port, Arch, riverfront. The main stretch

    When I was in college this year, I had a UPS front less than 5 minutes away from me. Not too sure about fedex however. Well, it may be a pain in the ass when you want something that only St Louis offers around here but I love my town. Its small and theres not many suicides/rapes/murders around

    J&G fuckin' sucks too.

    Locally, they're known by Junk & Garbage, so, at your own risk.

    Fedex packages go to Collinsville or other local centers to go out for delivery, so you wouldn't have to go to STL to get it.

    IDK. All I know is it checked the delivery history online and it said something about taking it back to st luis hub. Maybe they got the description wrong? :dunno:

    I don't have a c&R license so I cant buy from this place. But I do have a FOID card so I can buy a gun person to person. He arranged it, and it is going on my books. Its fucking stupid. I can legally own it after someone orders it for me but I cant order it myself.
