"csmc a$$- kissers"?
I think much of the hand wringing and whining comes from the fact that up front money was required to get your name put in the que.
Had Connecticut Shotgun done as Ruger did with the Gold Label (how many years was that?
), I doubt that anybody would be busting a blood vessel over it. For those who don't have the stomach for this kind of deal, it's probably better to just hang on to your money and either wait for one to become available on the private market, or simply buy something else.
I ordered an RBL on September 21st, 2005. Carole from Connecticut Shotgun called on Wednesday to inform me that it's ready and will ship in a day or two.
A little late, for sure, and Lord knows I'm rarely a patient guy. Communication certainly could have (should
have) been better, but all will be forgiven if the gun lives up to reasonable expectations.
Standing by and milling around smartly...
