    None of the vendors near me carry Barristol and I have to drive to Bass Pro to get it.
    I was getting low and was making an order to TOW and ordered a bottle of Barristol then.
    Then I noticed I missed a bit and made a second order.
    Well; you have to ship Barristol ground only. So my second order arrived today my first order will be about Monday.
    Wow.... it wasn’t very long ago that two or three weeks was normal for an order. Now I’m impatient over a week... talk about spoiled, it did give me a chuckle when my second order came in.

    I ordered my Balistol through wallyworld. Shipping was free with pickup at the local store. It only took a couple of days between order and pickup.

    I got some with a recent order from MidwayUSA..., I don't buy from Dicks or Wallyworld.

    I don't use Ballistol, so I never have a problem ordering it. :D

    I didn’t have any problem getting it, I was just getting low and thought I would add to my order.
    I was just chuckling about the fact I shoot front stuffers that are slow at the very best... and at the same time impatiently waiting for my order.

    Imagine what the 18th century wait times were.
