So... you are saying our armor could come pre-tested? Sweet. I don't think anybody at United can hurt it as much as putting it on and getting clotheslined off my DR650...

I appreciate the update. Thank-you.

I've done (air) shipping with Delta Air Cargo between California and Hawaii and found their prices fair and their service great. Never a lick of trouble.

My past shipments have used British Airways for Air Cargo, this was United Airlines. Anyone know if UA is a subpar air cargo option? I've never had such an issue with BA..
So... its the afternoon of the 18th... did the shipment make it to Seattle?

So... it's the afternoon of the 20th. No info in my email or on this thread about shipping? Did our flight of armor end up right next to the Kuala Lumpur aircraft?

Update..

I will pre-empt this update with the usual;

A refund is available to anyone at anytime! Please don't hesitate to ask....

I would have updated sooner but as of Wednesday, UA for a few hours, had lost the shipment again. I wasn't going to update again, unless I had confirmation of delivery to Seattle. Shipping alone has taken over 2 weeks due to the nonsense!

Our shipment arrived in Seattle last night. My broker had a truck ready to bring it to Spokane but, Customs still had a hold on it. So, I expect delivery to me Monday evening.

I'll be printing postage in advance this weekend...

As always, Thank You guys for being so patient. This order has really sucked the life out of me! But on a higher note, our gloves are better than ever!!! Let's hope he can do the same with our armor...

Appreciate the offer. I should be taken care of, if Customs would just clear it already...

I'll let you know if there's any issues.. At this point, I can't have enough options.

Thank you for updating us on the delivery.
I'm so sorry you have been yanked around like a Yo-Yo by your supplier.
I work one on one with my customers and their needs, no middle man, not usually any wait for materials, so I feel your frustration with being stuck in the "in between". powerless to do anything positive really sucks!
I learned patience long ago, but being jerked around by some profit seeker in your supply chain would piss me off too! Good onya for hanging in there!
Karma will visit the money grabbing 'new demands in orders' scammer!

Although, I don't know how much longer I can wait haha.

Appreciate your understanding. Hopefully, everyone else understands as well but, I can also understand their frustration. This was supposed to be a seamless process this time, I think it's worse than ever!

Karma; hmmmm.... I sure hope so! But, can't say I believe in it like I'd like to..
