So has anyone actually gotten a shipping notice for those S&W knives yet?

Nossir, I have not. But I've not received a cancellation notice either, so I'm not too worried.

Be polite. Be professional. But be prepared to PARTAYYY!

Fun Shoe

I just called S&W customer service. They said that they had such a surge in orders that day that their inventory system couldn't keep up. So 4 out of the 5 SKUs I ordered weren't going to ship because their inventory system allowed me to order but in reality they had already run out.

She said you will only get charged when it ships, and that you'll only get charged for what ships (obviously). She said there's a long backlog of orders and it might be another week before stuff ships for some people.

So some stuff you might not get. I couldn't snag any of the pens, even though it let me order them. 3 out of the 4 knife SKUs I ordered were OOS too.

So it's a disappointment, but at least I'm getting 3 cheap knives for $15.

Dang. What kind of poo poo inventory system do they use? I've worked for companies with three warehouse workers and software from the 80's that can keep up.

I was going to turn around and resell them, unless I really like one.

The only one I really wanted was that ridiculous karambit, but it was out before I could order.

No, but this morning my cc contacted me to confirm a suspicious charge from them that was a little less than half of what my order was for.

Was it from AOB PRODUCT COMPANY?

Because I have such a pending charge on my card and I assume it's for whichever of my ordered knives might actually ship.

Nada. Go figure they have some backwards inventory system though. Slickdeals effect strikes again.

Thanks for the headsup. I just saw that entry on my credit card statement and was wondering what the heck it was. It ended up being for only $9.17, so I guess it's for two knives (although which two I don't know because the math doesn't add up for any two knives when I review my order). How exciting!

I love those suspicious charge notifications. I had one yesterday where my wife picked up her phone, looked at it, and just said "this is some dumb gun thing, isn't it?"

Yes, yes it was (reference books in this case).

I used to browse on there quite often but have done more ATV'ing and snowmobiling over the last few years. I just checked it out and poo poo is just empty. Is it the covid craze still going on?

Also retro, in the AR department. One dude on Reddit dropped $500 on a DOE slickside upper - no barrel/sights/handguard, just the receiver. (I think he had to buy the aftermarket smoke deflector, too.)

Maybe it's just me and my little gun niche, but I've noticed a lot of pretty good prices on used guns. While ammo prices are still a mess it seems like the used gun market is actually pretty good.

Yeah, I've scored some pretty good deals in the last year on antique (as in no FFL required) german bolt action rifles. I mean, lots of over priced poo poo too, but if you're patient there are deals to be had.

Price mistake; Normally twice as much. It's at TigerDirect though, might have better luck shipping if you can get Best Buy to price match

I ordered one from TigerDirect and if it gets cancelled, that's PayPal's headache to sort out.

I've been looking for a laptop I could charge via USB-C PD for a while. Thanks!

Edit: Got an order confirmation from TigerDirect, so hopefully it ships.

Double edit: They cancelled it.

I was outside just thinking about how my EDC knife is a bit too dull to nicely cut this landscaping fabric, when fedex shows up with my S&w knife.

Only one, even though my shipping email had two. Package item list only shows one. I guess I'm either out 3.82 or it's in a yet unlisted shipment. I only have two total and cloth listed as in stock on all update emails

Well, that's annoying.

Ordered some of those S&W knives.

Earlier this morning I got a fraud alert text from my CC company, asking if I recognized $26.06 at AOB PRODUCTS COMPAN. Because today is the 17th and I placed the order on the 6th, and because I completely forgot that S&W changed the name of their holding company, I said "no," so now I'm not getting my knives (no big deal) but I am getting a new credit card in the mail (and changing everything I have autobilled to that card is going to be a pain in the rear end.)

Good god are the folders heavy as hell. This is a car knife, not an EDC. Makes me appreciate my 565-1 all the more.

EDIT: Yeah, not a fan of the "auto-open" switchblade-like function, either - it's kind of clumsy and I have no idea how and didn't feel it when it happened, but it superficially sliced the top of my left index finger between the knuckles.

The tactical pen seems alright, at least.

I like the heavy. But I didn't notice the auto-open thing, or how to engage it anyways. I feel there's some 'assist' going on once it's already almost all the way open, but that's it.

Assuming we're both talking about the SWMP4L, when you disengage the "safety" on the body, the catch on the opposite side of the blade flicks the knife open automatically.

Gonna have to double-check if it's VA legal before it leaves my house. Also, be careful with the plastic square piece that I'm gathering is where you're supposed to press to stow it back against the force of the spring. I'm thinking that's what caught my finger on the first opening.
