Default Delivery Time

I have several firearms on order with one of the local dealers here. Some of them have been on order since August. Can someone tell me why it takes months for a firearms dealer to get firearms in to fill orders? It just seems to go against the way any other retail business works. Do firearms manufactures not keep any stock of there current available firearm?

Most buy from a wholesaler and some may go to best costumers first. Find the gun online and buy through your dealer.

I will have to look online and see what I can find. Because the local dealer has had a big chunk of my money now for 4 months and I am still waiting on the firearms.

Try Guns for Sale | Online Gun Store | Grab A Gun Online Gun Store or a larger gun store. I hate waiting. If you have a good relation- ship with the store let them get the gun for you after you locate it on line. Have done a few this way.

Well 2 of the gun I was waiting on are now in. The .500 S&W Magnum and the 3" Kimber Eclipse came in on Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

I think the other 2 our in and my other half is getting them for me for Christmas. Because I keep getting very fuzzy answers when I ask questions about them. Sometimes they tell me they will be in by a certain date but then when I ask again they tell me they are not sure when they will be in. This weekend they told me just to hang in there and they will be in. My girl friend told me she is getting me something that I really want. She said they are not in the house and someone else is wrapping them for her.

So I am going to give them to the end of the month and if they are not in yet then I will get them somewhere else.
