Yeah, waiting can drive you nuts. But it's a good thing! The more you wait, the more sweeter it will be to open the box and see your brand new toy that you've been telling all your close friends about or bugging your parents with the "did anything come for me today?" line. lol

I received 6 orders one day. Canada post usually delivers them (the new guy kicks ass he always shows up to my door and says "shopping spree again, huh?) The old hag used to just walk up to the door and hang the delivery notice tag on the knob. So, I receive the first package and go to turn around and close the door and he says "I'm not done yet" and I was dumbfounded. He had 3 more things for me to sign for. An hour or so later UPS showed up with my RRV rig from redwolf and my RIS unit from Airsoft GI. I ran up to my room with all 6 packages in my arms and threw it all on the bed. Took me about 20 minutes to open the first one because I couldn't decide what I wanted to look at first, LOL.

Yeah man. I usually get all pissed off because most of the packages have so much tape on them and I can never find my knife so I have to open my closet, dig out my duty belt and get my knife out of its sheath. In the process there are a few profound words from things falling on me, etc etc. None of that went on this day. My mom had to come upstairs and make sure I was still alive cuz she didn't hear any noises out of me for a while, lol. The best thing about it...no UPS fees!

I've got something that is coming from Quebec and it was shipped regular post which will take just under 2 weeks to get to me
Its the same thing though when I look in the classifieds and spot something I want! I'll send the person a PM and I hate waiting to the point where I'll end up buying it from whomever answers my PM with shipping and payment info faster! I seem to have a pet peeve for people that post classified ads but only log into the forums once every 4 days or once a week.
I know Im addicted....
and now you get a week off ASC... see if you have more patience...

The part that drives me mad is the 2-3 days after the package arrives to the country, but doesn't appear inside the country yet on the tracking page, for Turkey, during this time the package gets investigated at the customs. If you are lucky, package procees to the city postage offices and arrive soon (14 days for airmail, 5 days for EMS, 2-3 days for UPS, FEDEX, etc.)
But sometimes it gets held, and a paper comes at your door, saying you need to pick your stuff up.
Then you have to travel to the other side of the Istanbul (takes 2 hours) and will get taxed at customs (i paid 70$ tax for my electric motorcycle's charger for example, yeah saving the enviorment, government loves me). If it's an airsoft that got held, you might be unable to take it, or you will be sent to a security office and police will investigate your airsoft. There are no clear laws about airsoft here. It can take 5 days to 1 year to get your airsoft. (a tm p90 arrived in 5 days to my door via EMS, friend's m4 took 1 year because of procedures)
