    So I shipped my long slide and a rmr off to Bowie last week thur. Checked the tracking today and it does not exsist. UPS may have lost It. I emailed Bowie to see if it got there. I pray it did. I insured it but not that it does any good being I cant get anothet long slide right now anyways. Called UPS and they have no record of it.

    Guess i wont be getting much sleep tonight.

    Did you ship it through a "UPS Store", or one of those mailbox stores? I occasionally use a mailbox store, and I rarely get the shipping notice or see it in the system before the package is received (or a week or two later). Almost as bad as Postal.

    Well, all the postal systems seem to have their issues, but I just hate using UPS, and avoid it whenever possible.

    Ouch! I have pick-ups once in a while, and they're in the system within an hour. Good luck! I hope the driver didn't drop the ball. If he didn't scan it right away (I always insist they do), I don't know. UPS has always been better for me than the others. It's a box with an address on it, so hope for the best.

    As of late everything I have ordered or shipped has taken a day or so to show up in their system, give it some time, hopefully it's not gone, let's be positive.

    :wavey:

    He shipped it last week. It should have arrived at its destination already.

    UPS ground is 5 business days the weekend doesn't count......depending on when Thursday he shipped it early or late it might or might not have left his local processing center that day, 5 business days puts him at today.

    Besides I'm just trying to be positive, thanks for throwing more negativity at the guy :wavey:

    Citous, Hope everthing finds its way to the proper destination!
    Things do happen, here lately I have been double boxing things with address info on the inside of packages I send out. Sometimes I think the target packages with insured items...soccer, football, basketball are just a few things I picture as the package goes thru the shipping process. LOL :dunno:

    I hate to be the guy who dumps bad on a hopeful member of GlockTalk... but a few years ago UPS was in the middle of a theft scandal. They were caught skimming certain items and labeling them as lost or not received, only to sell them on eBay and a few other websites. This is how I purchased my Cairns 1010 fire helmet for less than $80.oo.

    I am not saying this is what happened. I hope and pray it did not happen, but they have a poor track record with this sort of thing going back over 10 years now.

    Just heard from bowie he has it. That is a relief. How can a package not show up in their system if they delivered it? Who knows. But my stuff is safe.

    Real glad to hear it made it! After just reading your post, I wasn't going to be able to sleep tonight, worrying about, where it might be! I don't mind ordering things, but I hate shipping things off, especially things, that are hard to replace!
