MO benefit the seller, as it’s literally cash and they can keep it off the books.

I had a shop that I shipped out a pistol this week to the buyer hadn't picked up yet so they called me & told me to call back immediately with the dude's contact info.

I called them back, only to find out they 'Don't answer phone presently, email only' (their message)

Think OP said D&L is doing the same thing, won't take calls. Mad

I don't know if the BATFE has anything to say about it, but I can't imagine they'd look kindly on an FFL taking money without shipping the item? What else might they be a little bit shady about with their books?

Thanks for all your support and suggestions. The problem with D&L, as soflaac mentioned, is that their telephone line is always busy!

I emailed Gunbroker and the RI Office of the Attorney General informing them so we'll see what that brings. My plan is to get in touch with ATF and run this train wreck by them as well. I'll bet D&L will shit their panties when they (ATF) shows up at their door.

I emphasized to Gunbroker and the RI Office of the AG that I do NOT want to receive a firearm from D&L but rather insist on a money refund. For all I know those asshats at D&L will try to smooth it over with a gun that may be used..... and then I'll have the joy of trying to get a refund for it from them. At this point I only want my money back and will remain persistent until it happens. I'll keep you posted!

I bought some magazines for my 229 Elite and ran in to the same problem. I called and no one would answer aor call back. I sent an email that was to the point and got an email back saying they were 14 days out on shipping which was not stated in the ad. I get it that they are busy but I won't buy from them again. A gun is a different deal and like you, I would be livid.

They have a FB presence, I would recommend trying to contact them there, and leave feedback for others to see.

Got both an email and phone call yesterday from a lady at the RI Attorney General's Office! I didn't answer the phone believing it to be a "scam" call (it showed "Caller Unknown") which a lot of people do not answer for reasons we all know. After listening to the message I kicked myself in the @$$ for not answering. It was almost 5pm when the phone rang so I never considered it would be the RI AG's Office... Anyway, she requested that I submit by email supporting documentation regarding D&L. I had suggested in my initial inquiry to them that I could send them hard copies by snail mail if they would provide a mailing address but they never responded to that idea.

Being a totally "non-tech" person---one reason why I do not post photos--- I will take pics of the documents with my cell phone, send them to my email address, then forward them to the lady at the RI AG's Office. Call me out-dated, I'll consider it a compliment.

As for Facebook: You guessed it! I don't do that either and probably never will. Now, I COULD ask my very tech-savvy wife for assistance in the emailing of pics, etc. She's outstanding with all that stuff. Problem is, she does not know about my $1,434.00 Valor "purchase" and would crown me if she found out!!! See where I'm coming from? At least I can reach out to you guys for moral support, for which I'm grateful.
