    Good for you, it took me 56 days and 6 emails to obtain this same info. Already they're improving their service. Critical and blunt feedback works every time.

    Here are two orders I made and Ref# that look similar to your situation:
    purchase from FOC 29 Aug ref# 6035xxx
    purchase 15 days later from Prophet River 13 Sept ref# 6031xxx

    People need to understand that retailers were slammed with business that they were not set up to receive - that shouldnt be news to anyone and people should have a level of understanding about the circumstances that they have found themselves in.

    That said.......how they handle inquiries from the public (ie, the OP) is what sets apart a decent retailer, from a gong show of a retailer.

    While the delays are understandable for FOC, their response (or lack of) is not.

    I agree with you, and my point wasn't the amount of time it took, but rather the fact that FOC actively avoided communicating with me. From 6/2 when I purchased the firearm, until 7/28 when I finally received the transfer #, I wrote 6 emails asking for it and all 6 times they responded with "sorry man, we are too busy to look it up". Not exactly confidence inspiring and I firmly believed that something went wrong as the order said "fulfilled" and tracking number was invalid. The icing on the cake was when I finally had confirmation and after not hearing anything for over a week I inquired again and was told "we are working as fast as we can, we will get to you, and You'll receive a shipping notification when the courier picks it up". What does that mean? Within a week, a month, 4 months...? I would have been perfectly fine with "we are busy and probably 2 weeks to a month behind". Fast forward and I didn't get a shipping notification but the firearm did arrive 2 days after I posted here. Anyhow, in comparison to two other GTA dealers where I made similar purchases, also during a busy time, FOC didn't score well
