Taking money and not delivering product? That's bad . . . m'kay?

So now, are you satisfied that I have made the necessary contribution to give lie to your assertion that I'm somehow "protecting" Moses by lack of interest in the discussion? Will you now stop trolling me on the subject?
Could not have been said better. To say The Files, its members or Mark are conspiring to protect Moses has not read a significant portion of posts related to the subject with any comprehension. Mark needs no validation from myself or anyone as to remarks made or not made, but to say his or any other members not participating in tilting at this windmill implies complicity in "a conspiracy to protect Moses" is pure ignorance. Were Moses under protection of the owner, moderators or majority of members this thread would be moved to basement if not deleted outright, much less dragged on for over 650 posts at this moment.

Pretty sure it's all a bust at this point. Called moses, dude told me he'd ship it out tomorrow (this was like last week) Nothing came of it. Not sure what the hell is up with the guy. maybe an oxy addiction or something? who knows, who cares at this point I guess..

This is so disappointing. I have a handful of these mags, and they've become all I use. Every interaction Ive ever had with this guy has been fast, professional, and beyond courteous.....bordering on family-like level of care. In most cases emails were returned within the hour. All of this though, was at least 2 years ago.



I would really like to make these work in my RFB, but they require modification (I need to remove a few ribs for them to fit in the RFB's slide-in/ drop-out mag well) but am so paranoid about damaging the ones I have in fear of them not being replaceable.


Has anyone had any luck with ordering through DSA? Does DSA actually have these in stock and on hand? If they drop ship them....Im afraid Ill never get them at this point.

That would make sense why he has been behaving squirrelly for at least the last 3 years or so. Show up late or not at all for his own shoots, not delivering work on time, not posting results for his matches, and now this.

I Hope Johnny shows HERE and tells all what is going on with him.

Johnny always treated me right and the Man deserves to stand up for himself.
Best regards to All in this thread.

The man no longer deserves anything other than maybe a tar-and-feathering and a ride out of town on a rail. He has had all the chance in the world to speak up - look how long this thread has been going on - yet nothing. Not that it would mean much since actions speak much louder than words. I mean, what could he possibly say that would justify how he has fukked over so many people for so long ? Any words he has spoken to individuals seem to be consistent lies anyway.

The only things I wish are 1) that everybody would get their orders or otherwise be made right, and 2) Moses would magically disappear from the world of FALs. Number 2 seems to be well underway.

Has anyone ordered from DSA (or any other retailer) and received mags?

Last I looked DSA had them listed as "in stock".

I'm curious if they actually have them on hand or if they're being drop shipped.

I had been watching DSA, and they had not shown them as in stock until July 28th. I ordered some that weekend, and they shipped the 31st. I just looked, and all but the FDE FAL mags now show as out of stock. I would trust that to be accurate.

Well wish in one hand and shit in the other, you don't get to make the decisions, that's God's job.

Gee, I am really sorry that wishing for something good is such a travesty.

Besides, God doesn't seem to be helping anybody right now, maybe a few good wishes might be like prayers, mmmmm ??
