After looking into this further, I think he needs to either post a general response or pull-down his website.

This isn't right.

Moses?

Do the right thing, please.

It's truly unfortunate that someone like John decides to blow off his friends and
customers. As you can see from reading this thread there are still folks who think John is made of gold and can do no wrong in their eyes. This isn't the first time he's had a serious life issue to deal with, many years ago he was the subject of a 'malfunctioning' FAL and ended up being prosecuted over it. It was resolved in his favor after Len Savage intervened on his behalf. But you can only ride the sympathy train so long. It seems as if he's given up on the files and the FAL community as a whole.

Ok...I've held off commenting on this thread for a long time. I'm an old time member here and Johnny has done a lot of work for me. Chopping barrels, flash hiders etc. He has always been a little slow but this is bull crap! I read his post and thought, ok...he is stepping up. But he has lost all credibility. Enough is enough! He needs to be banned here! I like the guy! But come on Johnny! You can rip my A$$ about not having a dog in the fight but get real! He is ripping people off and joining the ranks of George Gouger, Mike Prewett and the like!

Someone on ARFCOM apparently got their 8-magazine order in the mail today that they placed in October, 2016.

I'm honestly shocked to hear that someone got something at this point. No one should count on it based on how things have gone.

No dog in the fight, but he did say he sent multiple texts and finally demanded the mags.

Guy is from TN. Close enough to suggest he might visit in person.

ETA: I looked at his archived posts. Varied topics and nothing to indicate he's a shill for Moses.

And has 11 whole posts with a join date in 2010.

While that may mean nothing, still ...

I guess that we'll all see if anything else happens.

I have a hunch that there is an underlying problem with Moses that will come out sooner or later. I have a hunch what it is, but I will leave it for myself for the time being.

Any underlying issue is irrelevant when simple communication would have sufficed. He demonstrated a couple months ago that he can access this site and make a post. That, and not taking in anymore money for orders he could not hope to fulfill. He's a ******* shyster and he needs to be banned at the minimum.

There are no issues with this problem that couldn't have been mitigated by
some good ole commo. Is he on a vent? What pray tell could be the problem
we all would like to know......ijs.

What Moses is doing is he is taking NEW money (new orders in cash ) and using it too buy supplies too fill a few of his close friends and those who threaten him on their now almost 1 year old orders,that's a Ponzi scam plain and simple.

I've Seen 4 different doctors and had 4 complete blood labs taken on me over the last few months, they tried many different medications none seem to work, my doctors visit last week they seemed to have found a combination of medications that is working well enough for me to work.

There are several tedious secondary operations that need to be done to the mags on my manual milling machine before they are ready to be assembled, the procedures I could not do in the state of health I have been in, I am doing them now and assembling mags and then shipping them ASAP!

For those who want to hear the dirty details, my little cousin has a brain tumor and has already out lived the 3 months they gave her to live in October, I have tried to see her as many times as I can but those visits have been few and far between because of my health. My Mom is 77 years old and requires assistance everyday as she has many health problems, when I got sick my sister sold her house and moved in with my mom since I could no longer take care of her in my current state, my father died 2 years ago so my mom had no one to take care of her.

I've had a great reputation here on the Fal files for 20 years and would never do anything on purpose to mess that up. I'm sorry I can't control my health,
All I can do is ask for your forgiveness, kindness, a little more patience as I still have a ton of orders to fill. I am sorry I didn't get on the FALFiles sooner to explain the delays.

I have been shipping orders on a regular basis the last 5 days and will continue to do that til all orders all filled.
It is a slower process than normal as I have to sort through all the charge backs people have sent to my credit card processor to know who has and hasn't already cancelled their order.

The Moses Mag website is not working properly at this time and will not take orders! I'm doing the best I can to get it back up and running asap!

I am not a rip off artist and will fill everyone's orders old and new!
I just ask you give me a little more patience to get caught up.

All 3 colors of FAL mags are in stock and have been the entire time, I just haven't been capable of doing the secondary operations.

If anyone wants to place an order while I am getting the website taken care of and get in the queue please text or call me @ (704) 750-9661
please leave a message if I don't answer and I'll get back to you asap!


thank you for listening
If you have any questions for me please text me at the number on the moses mag website (704) 750-9661 you can call also but it really slows the work down as I can't always hear the phone due to the machines and when I do I have to stop working, where as I can answer the texts later.

Thanks Johnny (Moses)

FWIW, DSA had taken them completely off their site back around when this thread started. Before then they were out of stock.

Yes, they are in stock and I finally have some more coming my direction.

This may throw a whole new light on this post. There may be some production goals in Moses contract with DSA. I'm also pretty sure he would make more selling them directly, but if he has been unable to ship due to health concerns, you'd think he would have informed everyone that his product could be had from DSA. It wouldn't have taken much to contract someone to ship his outstanding orders. Big hit on credibility. Oh well, I hope everything works out and everybody gets what they paid for.

The product speaks for itself. I just hope there wasn't any "Chicago Way shenanigans" going on LOL.

I never thought he would pull off still being a member after 10 months of excuses.

I would hope people would boycott this product on principle. Placing an order from DSA for Moses Mags shows you are cut from the same cloth as Johnny. Without honor or integrity.

Moses has moved on too bigger and better sales with DSA,pretty sure he has written off the fal files and those he owes money too still here on the files.He is still a member here on the files and still in good standing , so why pay up now that he is doing good with DSA.
Heck Moses made a killing off selling magazines here he didn't even have.Bet he is laughing all the way too the bank.
