    Ordered a set of Kragens from Gtlightingusa's GB. Good seller, he's been good on communication, etc.

    Lights shipped on the 8th via USPS Me no have lights.

    Just talked to gt, he sent me the tracking number - which said that package was delivered on the 21st.
    Again, me no have lights.

    Thinking a degenerate saw a box on the doorstep, and decided to steal said box.

    Have a tracking number, hoping that there is some recourse through the postal service.

    What do I do? See if USPS is willing to do anything about it? If they won't, should I contact PayPal/seller?

    How long have you been on Kodiak? And whats the weather been like? The postal carrier could have attempted to deliver when you were gone, and the note blew away in the wind. This has happened to me before when I lived in Kodiak. If you were unavailable for delivery and unable to go to the post office and pick it up, the USPS will send it back to the shipper.

    Been fishing out of Kodiak for three years, just moved up here in January, drove the Alcan up. Weather has been absolutely gorgeous - 65 and sunny for the last two weeks! Apparently, there was another shooting in town around Spruce Cape; 5 times in the chest with a .22.

    Anxious to see what USPS says. I'm not mad, just would like my lights.

    I'm not saying its alright with me, but considering the amount of volume that USPS works with daily - stuff like this is bound to happen.

    I'll keep everyone posted.

    Jake,
    Go to the post office with the del. Conf. # and say you did not recieve... They can look into it. I've had an issue or two in the past with this & they've been able to track it down. ;)

    Will do. Manners go a long way with dealing with these things.

    Like I said. USPS moves thousands if not millions of packages a day. Just kinda bummed. Wiring in a blue seas fuse block, got my rocker and relay. Just no lights.

    Just got em'...asked around and they were delivered to the neighbors by mistake.

    Mods feel free to delete.

    Rep to Jin from Gtlightingusa. Excellent communication and great packaging.
