    As you shop for mags, holsters, ammo and other things to help you run your Glocks, I wanted to give you a heads up regarding Outer Banks Ammunition. (Another poster here on Glock Talk posted some deals from their site here, so I ordered.) Here's my experience: I didn't receive the product after a couple of weeks, so I filled out their on-line web contact form, emailed, FAXed, and mailed the company, all with no response. I called dozens of times and eventually was able to connect with a person a few times. Was repeatedly told that it had shipped, or alternatively that their computer systems "were down" and they would take care of it. A huge amount of effort later, it took my credit card company to get a refund for a product that never arrived even after 5 months of hassle without even an apology. I appreciate it when deals are posted here, but I also wanted to warn folks with at least one person's experience.

    I ordered and the products arrived but it did take a little time for being in the same state. They were also hard to get in touch. Seems like they may just be starting up.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I am always looking for cheap ammo sites. I will steer clear of this one..

    Thanks for the heads up. I guess the only way I would get stuff from them is if I was in area and stopped by the store.
