Interesting perspective. You claim he is a troll for asking a question yet come in here trolling new guys with a problem. You're either retarded or a shill. Which is it? I guess technically it could be both...We know why you can't answer the question but it seems as if you don't. Where are the mags these gentlemen paid for and how much longer is it going to take? It will soon be April. I initially came to Moses's defense in this thread. After coming in and only pimping new product before addressing this changed my mind. If he's lucky some of us may continue to purchases his mags through a third party. My bet is he doesn't make as much money that way. Unfortunately this situation has irreversibley damaged his credibility.

ETA. When the hole you're in is too deep to climb out of, stop digging...

Good Lord, did you just land here after being on Mars or something ????

"Quick to turn......" , I'd suggest you recheck the timeline here. Moses has been given the benefit of the doubt FAR longer than anyone else would have been accorded, and far, FAR longer than anyones else has ever been given in the past AFAIK and has taken every bit of slack given to him and stretched it even further. The man is a liar and a thief. Period, end of story.

So now I'm the troll? Oh ain't that rich! I made my original post about how Moses has always been right by me.

You all have jumped my s hit since. I think you all may need to look in the mirror when calling someone else a troll...

Your lack of thread progression comprehension is astounding. Quoted in order. You come in here and call a guy a liar. Then you say he (Moses) has always done right by you implying he could never do wrong by anyone else and anyone else with that experience is either wrong or crazy. Then you can't answer the only applicable question within the thread. Yes, you're a troll. And in all this time of telling us how great your past experience has been guess who hasn't even bothered to show up and speak for themselves? You guessed it. Moses. I have always ended up getting my stuff from him but it's after a good amount of time. I'm cool with that. What's not cool is trying to sell more stuff in another thread and letting this one go on for 6 pages without nary a peep. You should take your own advice it seems before calling a disgruntled customer with their own experience a troll. Dumbass.

Not a single one, fortunately. You're an imbecile. And since you're so keen on proper English you may want to revise your wording. Duh... I also notice the ad hominem attack rather than an actual response. Figures... Troll.

You must be illiterate because you are most certainly ignorant and bereft of any facts. Read the whole thread troll. Try to understand the progression of the thread. Look at the time stamps. Try to get your synapses to fire. And for the final time, just for fun and knowing you won't and can't actually answer... Have you made a purchase since October '16 and have you received it? Where is Moses to address the concerns of this thread? Why would he be more concerned with selling new mags when paid for product hasn't shipped? If you have nothing to actually contribute to those questions fugg off and start your own review thread ( that is antiquated​ and has no bearing on current events and concerns). Soooooo stupid... I'm done with you.

I find it hilarious you all seem to blowing a head gasket over my simply saying Moses has always been right by me. The ad hominems add to that...

Good for you. He has done right by me as well albeit on a casual timeframe. That wasn't all you said though. Your first post in this thread said you don't believe the guy with a problem. So you're saying he's a liar because he has one post and you always got your stuff. As if your input trumps the current situation. It doesn't. So Einstein, can you answer any of the questions posed? No? Then you have nothing to add of any consequence. Go away. I'm glad you looked up ad hominem BTW...

ˌad ˈhmənəm/
adverb & adjective
1.
(of an argument or reaction) directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining.
"vicious ad hominem attacks"

I'm really not trying to talk shit. The internet has a funny way of destroying intended sarcasm. I'm a sarcastic sonuvabitch. I apologize for derailing the thread.

There can be multiple answers to that poll. I've ordered and received product timely, as well as ordered and not received shit. How about qualifying the question, "In the last 6 months....."

FWIW anything, and I mean ANYTHING you order online is subject to being represented as in-stock and is actually out of stock for weeks or months. I ordered a TS-LS fence system from Incra and found out well after my order was placed that they are 2 months out. There was no disclaimer presented at any point during the ordering process. I guess retailers like to borrow money from you and hedge their loan against your desire for their product overriding the inconvenience of waiting.

Or in other words, don't spend money online you can't afford to lose.

I sent him the last of my FAL parts and a receiver last year and told him to take as long as he needs to build me my last FAL using the best of the parts. Then I lost his number when my phone died but found it on this thread. I have been having similar problems as he has with family so I can understand why he is somewhat preoccupied. I have never met him but have spoken with him at length. I am sure he will send everyone their things, Just might take a while.
