Stolen AMMO ! ! !

Recommended Posts

I had seven bricks of Aguila .22LR stolen off my porch Friday in Marion County.  If you see anyone (other than me) selling Aguila bricks, please let me know.  I ordered these from Midway, and assumed they would have to have a signature.  Apparently that was not the case because UPS is showing them delivered to my front porch. 

 

I know my mistake (assuming), and will have all my packages held at the hub for pickup from now on.

Been there, done that!  What really pisses you off is that UPS acts like they could care less.

Sorry that happened to you I've been lucky so-far and have only one item stolen and that was about 6yrs.ago.I would start by letting my neighbors know what happened that is if you have any that are close by maybe they saw someone or something.

I'd bet the UPS driver knows who did it.


If it hadn't happened to have been ammo I probably wouldn't agree with someone thinking this but I do since that is the case. Hard to believe that someone not only stole something (happens all the time), but to walk up on someones porch, stand there looking at a box not knowing if someone was looking out the window at them, and picked it up and walked out off the porch with the box under his arm....Brave and stupid! Hope ya find the piece of crap!!!

I'm not following unless you are saying the driver stole it or alerted a buddy to pick it up. I'm guessing UPS keeps pretty close watch on stuff going missing on a driver's route and it wouldn't take long to question the driver.

Pure speculation on my part, but it wouldn't be the first or last time a delivery driver played a part in missing items.

I would bet I lose at least $1500 a year in "the customer is always right" BS , but that is a part of running a successful company. Midway can take it up with UPS , the customer comes FIRST in big bussiness. Just the way I roll..... :cheers:

My company does this all the time as well. Even if we know there is no way they could be right, we make the "wrong" right. As you said, its part of big business.

Yes , that's how business grows and grows and grows......small loses and BIG GAINS .....the ammo will be replaced at UPS expense maybe , if not then Midway does it and moves to FedEx with enough complaints with a discount anyways on shipping .....very competitive world out there ......

      Have decided now is as good as time as any to sell a few of the guns I have accumulated over the years - starting with those I rarely if ever shoot.  Will try to post an ad here - the mechanics of this forum are new to me so please be patient if I mess up with the pictures or protocols.
      First up is my HK P7 M8 in 9mm.  I  bought this gun "new" back in the early 90s and its sat in my safe pretty much the entire time.  The reason I say "new" is that its one of the West German police trade ins that were refurbished by HK to like new and put on the market in a new box  As such it doesn't garner the full premium many P7s do nowadays, but its still a genuine HK P7 in nice shape  and still rare as hens teeth.  It comes with the original box with matching serial numbers, original brush and scraper, original manual, and the 2 original mags.  The box is flawless.  The manual has some oil stains on it from setting on top of the gun in the case.  The gun itself has a slight mark near the muzzle on one side where it sat on the hard plastic divider in the box for 20 years, plus it has a slight discoloring in the bluing on the  rear of the slide, which is typical for these WG trade ins as they reblued them in kind of a funky plum color.  If you are unfamiliar with the P7 its a really cool gun.  It utilizes a squeeze cocker type action, along with a delayed gas blowback, and a fixed barrel.  All of this combines to make the gun extremely accurate and soft shooting, although being an all steel handgun its a little heavy compared to something like a Glock.
      The price is $1600 face to face within reasonable driving distance to Wilson County, and must have TN HCP and do the bill of sale thing.  Alternatively the price is $1635 (USPS money order) plus actual shipping costs to ship from my FFL to yours.   
      Now, hopefully I can figure out the picture posting thing....

      I got this about 5 years ago from my uncle. He got it sometime in the 40's that's all I know about the history of it.
      From the S/N I would say it was made sometime in mid 1885.
      I would say it has about 95%+ of the nickel still on it and the barrel looks great for something this old.
      I'm asking $600 and that is because the barrel looks better than any one of these I have ever seen.
      Markings: SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD MASS. U.S.A. PAT'D JAN.24.65  july 11.65 aug.24.69 reissue july.25.71 may 11.80 jan 3.82
      Trades Something in .40 S&W not a Glock please but I'm open to other things
