Yes, you read that correctly, the damned Post Office in PA apparently "cannot locate" a package dropped off by an FFL which contained a Sig P238 I bought on AuctionArms last week.
The gun should have been delivered on Wednesday but never showed up. When I tried to track the package using the label number they gave me, it never showed any movement and looked like a label had been printed but was never scanned by the PO. I called the out of state FFL to kick their ass in to gear thinking they had simply not shipped it yet... Well turns out they had shipped it and didn't know what was going on, so they called USPS to find out. USPS supposedly replied, that "they could not ship the package because it was a UPS box with a USPS label on it". I don't know what the hell difference that makes but ok, whatever. That was Wednesday.
Two more days go by and I still have not heard anything, so I email the FFL, who again calls USPS, who says "the status of the package is unknown, we are currently attempting to locate the package. Once it is recovered, it will be returned to sender". Sweet baby Jesus. What kind of retard looses a package containing a firearm? Ok, again, whatever, there's nothing I can do but wait, but I decide to politely ask the FFL if they'd mind overnighting the package as soon as they get it back for the inconvenience, considering they've had my money for a week and I have nothing to show for it. Their response was, and I quote,
The UPS messed it up, we had the correct address on it. Sorry,
Meaning fuck you, we're going to continue to ship it the same shitty way we were before regardless of how politely you ask. Well, I sorta get it, considering it's not (entirely) their fault (although they are the ones who apparently packaged it incorrectly), but regardless of who's to blame, you'd think you'd try your best to make it right with your customer, but not these guys (Sportsmans Supply Company out of Butler, PA for whatever it's worth).
Anyways, I'm just venting because (on top of just not knowing where the hell my $500 went) I was hoping to get this thing and run a couple hundred rounds through it to break it in for my girlfriend to carry and shoot with on a trip we're taking this weekend, but clearly that isn't going to happen now
