Botach tactical update- NAUGHTY list!

I initiated a chargeback on the 15th after not being able to contact them. Guess what shows up yesterday?
my order...only about a month after I ordered it. From the shipping details they shipped it out the 15th ...curious. And this with no contact like "Hey we are shipping your stuff finally! Please don't hurt us!"

I guess it took sicking the credit card company on them for them to actually ship my order. Not impressed at all. If I was evil I would just let the dispute run it's course. It's doubtful I'll even get an apology.

A pinkie would suffice .....what say you?

Botach tactical update: It's not looking good for them.

I attempted to contact them. The webchat does not have anyone available and the customer service department line is going to voicemail. I tried again the next day.....same results.

You want me to leave you a message and "get back to me" when you have already failed to do so twice now...I think not...

Hello credit card company, I'd like to dispute a charge please......*fume*

Botach tacical. Every thumb down.

So I placed an order 10-24 got a "it shipped" notice on 10-26....11-7 nothing. called customer service. "Shipping department isn't responding I'll call you back" No call I called CS again the next day. Shipping department says they didn't ship it. They are waiting on stock. (so they said item shipped but it didn't due to it being out of stock) They are expecting some in a day or two. Item shows as in stock on the website. Filled out customer service form on the site.....

11-13 no response.....

So I recommend not doing business with them at any cost. I'm not looking forward to trying for a refund.

Cubeville Pokemon edition!

So several coworkers are into the pokemon GO game. One of which was talking about him playing on breaks and such.

C1: *Comes back from break*
Me: So did you catch any?
C1: Nope
Me: So whats the balls ?

I'm not interested due to privacy issues.

Keep your eyes peeled for the STUPIDS!

So on my way home on the local highway after my night shift. The vehicle in front of me has no lights on...and it's not moving CRAP! *brake test ensues*

I turn on my flashers. And then I notice someone in the vehicle...oh great.

In hindsight I should have grabbed my carry gun from the car lockbox. Bad THOT!

So I grab my new big ass flashlight and find out if anyone is hurt. Looks like he hugged a pole with his truck. And he wants a ride to the next exit. Nope, you can't leave your car in the highway!?! Yup he walks off with a bag of his stuff and another motorist gives him a ride.

So I got to babysit his truck in the rain until the authorities arrived.
The good news is nobody ran into the dumbass's truck (or me) and my new heavy car flashlight works well in the rain.

Death of a flashlight. A cautionary tale.

I had a pretty decent flashlight stashed by the back door. (Fenix E21) This is a convenient spot since it's by the kitchen. Literally I just used it...and now it's not working. WTF batman......

Checked the batteries (Duracell Ultra)...ruptured cell....DAMMIT!!
and it's stuck. This model had a removable head so I was able to pound out the stuck cell. Fresh batteries did not help. It's a paperweight.

Oh leaking batteries are no joke. ACID! take reasonable precautions. Wash/flush your hands throughly.  It did eat into the metal cylinder of the light. That is what I think caused it's untimely demise.

There isn't anything I could have done to prevent the situation. Warranty covers manufacturer's defects and not ruptured cells. At least it wasn't a $300 Streamlight or something! And I have several lights that can easily take it's place.

After some google-fu it appears the light is even if I wanted to fix it somehow it' would be not worth the effort to find the parts.

Hope you learned something!

NRA coverage- or the lack of.

Sorry folks reality sucks.
I had to leave NRA WAY early due to a family emergency. I got to walk the floor for maybe an hour and change.

What is good is that the emergency is resolving itself about as good as can be expected.

In a departure from typical convewntion fodder near the press room is a booth selling fresh mini donuts. How fresh? They have a machine turning them out.

A friends comment sums it up. Something that good can't be good for you.


Do I listen to the speaches or look at the things.....decisions decisions...

Things to remember for NRA!

Business cards:
Even if they just have a name/Blogname and URL/Email. Very handy for the fishbowl drawings.

Address stamp or address labels:
For the other drawings, I don't want to be writing out my address all the time!
I just reuse the ones that charities mail out to try and get you to donate.

Walking shoes:
Meet new people and figure out how both of you know oldNFO!

For all the swag and such. I suggest keeping the catalogs/fliers to a minimum. They get heavy quick.

Your pain reliever of choice:
Your legs will get sore...If they are not sore I'm sure you can duct tape a few more rifle plates to your gear.

Snacks and Drinks:
Don't forget to HYDRATE. Watch out for your friends they might get too distracted.

Keep your eyes open and have fun. Who knows you might just catch Robert Farago with his pants down. (again). He still owes me for a case of brain bleach.

It will be extremely good to see the "tribe". And so nice of the NRA to co-locate a convention.

Stay tuned for coverage!

Just Prepper stuff- CHEAP headlamp.

Spotted at the wall of mart

While definitely not durable, for 1$ they are practically disposable. Also available are 3AAA flashlights and a ball cap light.
The straps are adjustable to about toddler size to large adult (Yes I have a big head).

The light adjusts to 135 degrees to illuminate what is needed. Also you can remove the headstrap and probably attach it to a surface. I'm thinking a nice light for a tacklebox or toolbox.

They run on two cr2032 batteries. Replacement batteries probably cost as much as the units.

As a note when I grabbed one of my headlamps to compare them it would not turn on. Fresh batteries resolved the issue. That reinforced that these are perfect for a backup light.

You are ugly and your mother dresses you funny.
The units where purchased by the author.
Also you are a source of CO2 emissions. You might want to stop that.

My pocket lint on the designated bathroom uproar.

Oh that's nice you identify as a woman/Trans/Pony!
I self identify as a Glock 19 (or 1911 choose your flavor)
Your play snowflake!

Your mother self identifies as a hamster and your father was an alcoholic with bestiality tendencies. Have you retreated back to your safe space and curled up in a corner, or shall I taunt you a second time?


C1: He makes a comment about wanting to be a ninja.
Me: So that would make you silent and invisible... OK! That works for me!

The fire department had to be called for the burn.

CUBEVILLE Boss edition.

Coworker to my right likes to lean back in his swivel chair. Manager's boss walks by and said:

"You are right at the level I can sit on your face."

And he wasn't kidding. He had no idea of the "other" meaning of what he just said.

Since Blogger is not letting me comment.
Glenn B-No such luck he was OBLIVIOUS!
