Sounds like the right thing to do.
Damn it, man. Get back to werk!
I ordered something from F1 Firearms (near Houston) right before the disaster. Even before the disaster, things were expected 45-90 days (because of anodizing demand). Yet… it just shipped. Now *that* my friends is serious commitment to customer service. Oh, and by the way, their employees have been rescuing people too. ‘murica
Nice! My mom shipped a package (like a 12x12x8 cardboard box) for my kiddos from outside of Seattle where she lives to outside of Austin where we live, and it was delayed due to Harvey. It arrived here wrapped in a bag and taped up. The box and everything in it were wet and it smelled like low tide haha. It was probably soaked in dirty flood waters. At least it made it! I guess.
Sounds like a great guy to work for but I still don’t believe their guns are worth the asking price. Would love to do a test to destruction with one of their “premium” AR’s vs. a rack grade one from PSA. I’ll donate the PSA gun.
