Brownell's use to be my preferred provider. One year I was in the program whey you pay ahead an all shipment's are free. It was a constant problem. Now I avoid Brownell's if at all possible. Which is sad, they do have good stuff.

Whenever I get the "in transit" message and the item is from Amazon, and is already delayed well beyond the promised arrival time, I just cancel it at Amazon for a refund, and re-place the order. Usually get it the next day.

IME, Amazon won't cancel an order that's been shipped.

I just had USPS send an item that had been scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, July 3, from a few towns away to Pennsylvania. It's now scheduled to be delivered on the 10th

Never mind sending it in the wrong direction: But how can something take ten days to here from a mere two states away?

I had a similar experience with USPS, around that same time.

I had some fresh (hot) peppers sent 2-3 day priority, from mid-FL, to my address approx. 20 miles outside of Charleston, SC.

It took 8 days to arrive, and according to the 4 "expect delivery today" updates I received, they sat in Charleston for 4 days!

They arrived in good shape despite the heat, but I was still pissed because I had planned my afternoons around the delivery.

Bryan - Just FYI; I mailed in mine, too, and it took 21 weeks to get my refund.

In most cases, you are correct. The use case I talked about was "delayed/lost". They even said they couldn't re-order it for me. I cancelled it (cancellation offered by Amazon), and I accepted that for a refund. I went right back to the same order page, where they were showing next day delivery. I reordered and had it the next day. I guess the original order was a victim of USPS purgatory ("in transit to next location", IOW, we don't know where it is).
