If you did not trust this fellow with your money you should not have purchased in the first place. If you did.. Then wait, Your purchase is on its way and will be delivered when it arrives.
Is it any wonder most small scale retailers last about 6 months before they get fed up and quit offering public sales.. and go 100% private and off ASC.
Retailers are sticking their necks out with each and every gun they sell. So pay them the respect they deserves and shut up about your deals and wait.
+100000. Nothing more needs to be said. If you aren't comfortable with waiting after giving someone your money for a product, then don't even do it in the first place. Accept the fact that you aren't going to be able to get those speciality items that no retailer keeps in stock any other way, and just buy stuff that is in stock, or out of the classifieds. Custom orders are not a simple process.
