I managed to make it all the way through the review board, get approved for a new replacement, only to have the replacement be out of stock. Anticipated in-stock date; another month. Purchased a new gun Friday 03 June, 2011 from BudsGunshop. It is now Thursday 11 August, 2011. Best case looks like the replacement (if it ever arrives to Miami) will be with me in September.
I'm not one for "extreme and total regulation" but there needs to be some recourse when somebody has spent good money on an expensive item and is basically "ripped off". I suppose that is why we have attorneys.
