I got a message this morning requiring that I pay through paypal. I refuse to use it so I cancelled my order. There's my two more boxes now available.

Hmm.. Looks like I'll be getting a message since I didn't use PP.

I ordered early Sat morning, they have not charged my cc or sent me an email about using PayPal. A pal here in town who ordered 9mm on Sunday DID get a note to use PayPal.

Empire is sounding sketchy, but if they deliver the mini-shells I'll get over it.

I ordered some of the Blazer Brass. I received a confirmation with an order number but no shipping charge or sales tax. My credit card hasn't been hit yet so I agree that something smells here.

I don't think you have any protection with Paypal Friends and Family. Does not pass the smell test imo.

Reading through the faq's on Empire's site I came across the following. I ordered some Blazer yesterday with a credit card i only use online because I was a little less than comfortable when I ordered.

All payments are done via escrow and do not cancel escrow once you receive your order, else we will track you and information will be compromise. Dont try to outsmart us.

Thinking out loud here - I do not think a person can file a claim with PP on a no receipt of goods if said purchase is gun or ammo related without jeopardizing their account being locked by PP...I stand to be corrected but I think their policies clearly state that they do not allow or support PP payments for said items so the buyer would be at 100% risk.....

Guys:
Out of curiosity from your posts I went to the website and found this:
https://empiregunshop.com/prod...azer-9mm-ammunition/
In these times, why do y'all think you can buy Blazer Brass in 9mm for $11 per 50 rounds from a legit source?

Guys - Not sure why but the address that "Empire Gun Shop" is using actually belongs to a company named "Precision Armory Gun Shop". Maybe it is a gun shop with in a gun shop for internet sales but it does seem odd as they also are using a different phone number for each company.

Gentlemen, I have no idea who these guys are, but I would be very careful. I don't even know what this means from their "our story" page.

"Many people ask where the name Empire gunshop came and from; years of an entrepreneur selling firearms and ammunition on the dark web for cheap prices developed a repeat customer base we fell in love with one of our best markets Empire gunshops and we decided to name it after the darknet market. During one of these sales when firearms were still a place for buyers in Empire gunshop, we had a lot of understanding and how customers prefer escrow."

They are total BS. The fact they want payment with Paypal Friends and Family funds transfer is all you need to know. It's a scam.

It's a scam. Mad

There is an Empire Gun Shop in NV that may or may not be legit. The same too-good-to-be-true ammo deals were posted on a local TX firearm classifieds site, also under the banner of Empire.

It's unclear to me if the Empire Gun website is a legitimate extension of the gun store, or if someone is hijacking their web storefront, but members on the TX classifieds found that it is 100% a scam.

Also, if you see anything directing you to or affiliated w/ Cooperate Handguns, that site is 100% a scam.

The reason they don't accept credit cards and want PayPal F&F is because PayPal converts to Bit Coin.

I have a bunch of ammo still on backorder from Optics planet and it is slowing coming in. Some orders are from early September and the good thing is that I am locked in on the order date price. I usually have a 10% discount code and with free shipping over $49.00 their prices are hard to beat if you don't mind their long shipping times.

Looking back on invoices I see that in August I ordered (and received) a 1000 round case of Win 9mm delivered for $213.25.

I use PayPal and Discover for OP purchases and wondered how they get away with using PayPal

I ordered the Ammo some time ago and just received it. Been shooting now more than I have in awhile. I think it will be years again before it is cheap.
