Wow.....I thought I had made it clear in my email a few days ago to you to ship it back to me, I'd make it right....I'll still make it right even tho' I'm a bit steamed about the posting. I happened to be playing with the computer at the time it came in. "thanks for the prompt reply" I believe you said.
A serious thanks to those who stated the obvious and the kind words , oh, and the custom boxes (odd sized) are only 2.35 each if I get 50 at a time, the peanuts are only 35.00 a 30 gallon bag, and yes I have insurance on all those stocks I ship. FedEx charges 11.00 a week whether or not I ship, yours went via postal as I had missed the FedEx truck that day and didnt want to wait. Now of course thats costing me.
You didnt post you lived in Hawaii. I'm sure the ground apes crushed it. Like I said in the email, send it back in the box I shipped to you, I'll need that to process my claim.
shop phone as always is 440-230-4867.
And I'd like to say in eight years, I've never had a stock break before. I cant imagine what it took to snap that at the wrist, and in laminate no less.
Just for the record, I've donated time and money to various members on this forum, one a 13 year old home schooled lad who is quite a decent kid. After talking with his dad I did free trigger work, bedding, and repaired HIS stock, it came in mangled and I did what I could. He shipped it in a gun case but it was disasembled and each part beat the other parts up- his deluxe stock took some serious hits. Not my fault, but I still stepped to the plate as they say.
Thanks for your patience.
I am moving my shop when they are done building the new one in three or four weeks, moving my residence again in the last three years (bigger and better-thanks to all those who've bought stocks from me so I can afford a nicer home) AND the other things in life that tend to interfere with email, please try the phone, if I dont call back, call me again and yell at me!
I will make it right time and time again.
Although I have a better idea, you keep the stock and I'll send a refund check. I'll second day it on Monday.
best regards, Claude Gatewood
p.s. thanks for letting me rant folks, its unlikely I'll visit back here for a month or so, but my phone works and the new address and phone will be posted on my website as soon as I know what the phone # will be:t
