The process has seemed to be:
Receive an email with an order acknowledgement, and a second "thank you" from Matt McMichael.
When the card is charged and the order is shipped. It usually comes in a vacuum pack freeze bag stuffed inside a USPS "if it fits it ships" box with lots of shipping tape. Pretty low-budget packaging. They don't send a shipping notice.
Away from Glocktalk for a bit.
