Well I ordered a Pedersoli 12 gauge shotgun from Dixie Gun works 10 days ago. The carrier is the USPS.

Since the 25th, it shows it’s stuck “in transit” since leaving the Mephis distribution center. :(

For a week now it’s been like that. So I called the post office customer service line and after a 45 minute wait, they decided to place the case under investigation. I told them it was a firearm and valued at $1500 so hopefully SOMEBODY there takes it seriously.

I also called Dixie Gun Works the day previous and they seemed totally uninterested in helping me. Despite the wait the post office had good customer service.

I’m currently taking vacation and wanted to do some patterning and late season squirrel hunting with the shotgun, but such is not in the cards it seems.

Sorry for venting!! Take care all!
 
Sorry to read about your bad luck. Hopefully it turns up sooner than later.
Well let that be a lesson to you……. The bride had a FedEx package with tracking showing it delivered and a photograph of what looked like a ditch on the side road (no package in the photo). FedEx was of no help, told her to contact the sender. The sender was apologetic, but it was a closeout item and there wasn’t much they could do. Customer service just credited her account (item wasn’t quite as pricy as your Pedersoli) and she moved on. Almost two weeks had passed, and then Wednesday of this week, the item arrived, obviously complements of the USPS. Nothing on or in the package indicated FedEx was involved. Contacted the sender and customer service said ‘good for you, buy a lottery ticket’. They considered the ticket closed and told her to just keep the item.

Unfortunately, a lot of packages of any value that goes into the Memphis distribution center don’t usually come out other than in an employee’s vehicle. I hope that’s not the case with yours.

I would call law enforcement, the postmaster general, and file a claim on the credit card.
 
The USPS is running really slow and the tracking isn't updating. My brother just got a generator part that took 14 days from Arizona to California. The tracking probably won't show it until 1 or 2 days before delivery. I would wait another week before taking serious action. It sucks but that's how it is working right now.
 
Dixie is responsible to get it to your door. I would have my credit card company flag it as fraud and get my money back.
I have done just that several times/ My credit union works with my card company and is very helpfull. I have had deliveries by companies posted to my e-mail showing a delivery to my porch Thay were not there and got my money returned. I have seen videos on you tube showing delivery people do that( take a photo) and then take the package with them . I do not know if that happened to me but they never knock or ring the doorbell ever any more,for several years now.

I am not sure if still the same now but several years back I had been ordering several times from a Pensylvania co. and always recieved in 3 days also Indiana southern california LA 400 miles 7 days USPS.
It seems that if you expect prompt delivery Amazon is it.
when stqationed in Germany I got packages in 3 days from Ca.

They're all kind of broken, USPS especially after their last re-org. Latest debacle was an order from Midway USA. It went to St. Louis. OK but Kansas City would have made more sense. Then it went up to the Quad Cities. Then for some odd reason they sent it to Roanoke, VA; where I was born; 1000 miles in the completely wrong direction. Down to Greensboro, to Ohio, to Chicago, to Minneapolis, to Kansas City, then Sioux Falls and finally to me. That package had about 2500 extra miles on it! Before that a parcel bounced around between Des Moines, Sioux Falls, Sioux City (now pretty much just a storage stop), and KC. That package passed within 30 miles of my place 4 times, over the course of a week, before it finally got to me. A letter mailed to a neighbor gets put on a truck, taken 85 miles north, processed, put back on a truck to come right back to this town - that takes 3 days minimum. No wonder they need to always raise their rates...

I has a similiar experiencewith a piece from track o wolf went all over the middle of the country finally arrived after7days in Stockton 60 miles South and sat there 10 days before I got it.
 
I've had a barrel get stuck in one place for a week. The post office is very short handed since nobody wants to work and thanks to abused welfare, those folks don't have to work. Anyway, my barrel made it, much later than it should have, but it made it to me eventually.

USPS tracking is almost worthless once an item gets stuck as they are no longer scanning it, until it gets to the local delivery office.

Good luck!
 
I have a lefty, 54 lyman flinter I named patience. Got held in an atlanta sorting room for over three weeks. Called the mgr, supervisor of the sorting room, nope don't see it multiple times. Then showed up. USPS was like it will show up. It did. Named her patience.......

This is the reason the USPS won’t ship your cap and ball revolvers. Theft. I was told that by a retired USPS employee.
 
My local PO has a hiring sign hanging outside for 2 years now. I bet my decrepit old ass could get hired on the spot if I applied. If I needed the work.
Ya know, its really good job, lots of bennys, vacation, great pension. Got to wonder why more kids dont apply, its all old black women there.
