The Purchase Order MUST be submitted in a few hours and PARS has already been very gracious with us.

You other guys in RED up there are about to be kicked out of all future buys and achieve negative feedback for non-payment.

You guys are very welcome and thank you so much for the encouragement I have been called a fool for doing this over the holidays (even though I started it in Sept.) and a total moron for not raising the prices since the auctions are hitting $600 right now.

As you know I will follow through with the original deal because my integrity wouldn't allow for anything else.



just a heads up I have submitted the PO to PARS and I am shutting down ALL comms at 1600 hrs PST so if your end isn't finalized by then - sorry I did all the hand holding I could.

GUH sorry I'm guess I am getting a bit grumpy.

Kudos and many thanks

Although late to the party thanking you, David, I would like to express my appreciation for your sustained and forebearing efforts.

You have done a great service for this group of FAL enthusiasts, and you have been exceptionally flexible and accomodating under the circumstances.

Happy New Year!

Bob

Big thank you to David for putting this all together, and helping to get this FAL newbie started! David, hopefully you got the second fax that my FFL sent? I sent you a PM a few days ago, but I'm sure you've been swamped!

I believe there is an FFL here with your name on it, but has not been cleared through ATF yet. I will update all accounts for FFL later this week. I have other obligations today and I only have a few more hours to accomplish them before I check out of here for about 42 hours lol.

Emailed you the address I use to contact him if that helps.

Thank you again.

Yes, thank you for this. Two months ago, I could have cared less about an FAL, but for some reason I got bitten by the bug. I considered just purchasing one, but I'm really glad I didn't. I am so looking forward to building one that I can truly call my own. Everything is falling into place nicely, and at the right time.

--Thanks again!

It just rolled onto the wrong time of the year for me with getting gifts for the kids - - my wife isnt THAT understanding - - to put up the funds for the end of 2012. Now, if it had been tax refund time - I will be in the the next batch !

Thanks for all the kind words guys.

Sorry I was out of comms for so long I was wrestling the second kidney stone in 30 days WTH?!?!?!

for those of you getting your Dealers to resend and resend their FFL's please calm down and just give me a few more days to catch up to the OP. I will get it corrected as I promised. Some of you I have even sent email after email telling you we have your FFL in house it just needs checked and posted.

It might take up to a couple weeks to get the crate here but I expect everyone to have their receivers before the end of January; if you can slow down on the constant phone, email, and PM's. We do want to answer all of your questions and calm your fears but really a few of you just need to learn to READ..

Thanks for your help with this Dave.

I sent you an email this morning giving you a "heads up" to expect my dealer's FFL shortly. I included all his relevant contact and shipping information.

Thank you once again. I know this entailed a lot of work on your part.

Good news and better news guys:
  • The PO and the EFT have been completed with PARS Int so now we wait on the truck to arrive.
  • PARS has granted us an extension to last years price because we got so close to 200 units: anyone want/need more receivers?
  • We have been promised "at least" another 29 receivers at this price if we can get them ordered before the end of the month.
  • this will not affect the previous purchasers in any way, consider this a seperate group buy of about 30 receivers.

We have been swamped here in the last few weeks and today is completely booked up but I will get to verifying and updating your FFL's very soon.
(they are not critical until we have receivers in house and ready to ship out)

Ok I caught up the OP with people's FFL's so take a look - if your name is blue we can't ship to you but your lack of due diligence is not an excuse for a refund..

Those who were in on round I just think of this next mini round as a new RUSH buy which has nothing to do with the last round: The truck for round I makes it's P/U tomorrow and will arrive at our facility by next friday.

Those wanting into round II, I will begin adding your names in the order received by time/date stamp whether received by post, PM, or email. We can add as many as you guys want but we MUST complete this one BEFORE the end of the month - That mean all funds must have cleared our bank so the new PO can be sent out. If we can reach the near 30 units this week I will cut this off and place the order; if not it will run until 1/25/2013 at which time all funds are due.

Round II - do not send CC info in email, or PM. either send FAX or call until you get through. I am working on making payment easier and cheaper but the new process has not cleared and they have a bit of heart burn with firearms. no it is NOT paypal.

Round II is another courtesy offered by PARS and will keep the prices as low as possible this year so if you can't get in on this one there is hope for the summer run.

If you can get in on this let's git er dun!!!

OH YEAH I almost forgot:

Huge Thank You


to all you seasoned buyers, you made your accounts very easy for me and did your part to keep the work load down.













For 'some' of you new to this arena -











OMG...

please learn to read, especially the OP. some of you need to learn to communicate a bit better, while some of you caused a huge work load with way too much comms. especially the two guys who got your dealers to send their FFLs 5 and 7 times..

I know it can get confusing and questions are always welcome just remember the thread is a great place to get your questions answered by the vets around here and they can and will take some of the pressure off your group buy coordinators.
