They seem like they're fully stocked with powder and primers. I'm not sure I believe it. Has anyone used this company before? Are they any good?

They are busy selling, but a disclaimer says that some items are out of stock, the amount of your order will be put on hold on your cc, then they will charge your cc when the order is complete and ready to ship. I went as far in the purchasing process as I could with out adding my cc but never discovered whether the merchandise was in stock or not.
Looks hopeful, but???????????????

Yeah, that was my experience too. Like I said, I'm not sure I believe they have all those in stock.

Guess I'm to conservative, I've missed some good deals, and missed getting burnt. I would rather wish I had, than wish I hadn't.

I contacted Loman, they "regretted to inform me that they are currently out of stock on all primers, however, shipments are expected soon". Same song different verse.:(

Ordered Accurate powder from them a month ago. Showed in stock.

Brian called me the next day, stating it was out of stock, but would be shipped in 17 day. I agreed to keep my order and wait.

Brian called me a week later. One of their suppliers was near me (within 40 miles). Offer to let me pick it up and refund my shipping and hazmat fees. I drove up 2 days later and got my 5lbs of powder. Received a refund check 2 day later.

They have changed their policy. They do not charge your card until product is in stock and being packaged for shipping. I have talked to 3 different people there. They are all really nice and continually thanked me for my orders.

I currently have 1000 rounds of 22lr ammo on order with them. Not sure of delivery date, it is back ordered. No charge to my card, but they will ship as soon as it arrives.

I plan to continue to order from them, especially after the "craziness" calms down, it of ever does.

I placed an order with Lohman Arms 1/24/13. They called on 2/9/13 and said items were in and would ship. They called again on 2/23/13 and said I could avoid credit card charges of 3% if I would pay by e-check. Money left the bank on 2/25/13. It is now 3/4/13 and no order and they are not answering calls or returning messages left. No response to emails either. Have any of y'all heard anything? Right now, i would say buyer beware.

I signed up for their newsletter. As of February 26, they are relocating to a bigger place and will be offering local pickup.
Stated it would be approximately 2 weeks to facilitate the move. They would still be processing orders, but it might be hard to reach them.
I don't work for them. Don't get any kick-backs. Just a customer. Had good luck on my first order, still waiting on second order of 22lr.

i am having the same type of issue with a local place, too. Showed in stock on line, ordered, money taken and still no product 2 weeks later. Called several times and it is always "supposed to be on the truck", but never is. Went to the store once with same story.

Crazy times we live in. Thank you Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden and Ms. Feinstein.

I called Lohman Arms today about my order and they said they would check into it. I got home today and my powder was on the porch! Good news and bad news. The order was shipped from Graf & Sons. Lohman is just placing our orders with another supplier and having it shipped to us. Next time I'll order from Graf & Sons. Their prices are less and include shipping except for the hazmat fee.

Their home page says with the current conditions it could be up to 12 weeks (3 months) before your order is shipped.

:r_c: Until the hording frenzy dies down, I prefer to keep searching and buy my ammo & components face to face.

Send them an email notification that either they ship your merchandise or refund your money by a specified date or you will contact the Texas State Attorneys General. That should get their attention.

Thanks for inquiring about Lohman Arms. I am Brian Lohman, founder and majority ownerof the company. I want to personallyapologize to any folks who have had a negative experience. I have been a life-long hunter and sportshooter and saw that there was a real need for reloading supplies, ammunition,etc.
When I first started the company (as a one-man-show), I wasable to talk personally to each of my customers. But as demand increased wildly in December(as we all know), I had to work—and continue to work—around the clock to fillorders, return phone calls, keep the mail machine running and the lights on,etc. I have since hired several new employeesto help with billing, inventory, and business management, and we have recentlycompleted a move to a larger warehouse and office/retail space.
When our volume was small, we charged credit cards uponordering, and that worked fine. But now,we have changed our policy given the increased demand and manufacturer shippingtimes, and YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNTIL YOUR PRODUCT IS ACTUALLY SHIPPED.
If you obtain your inventory elsewhere sooner or need tocancel for any reason all you have to do is give us a call.
I can assure you we are "legitimate" as I havespent the vast majority of my waking hours since December building thisbusiness and serving our customers to the best of my ability. With the additional staff, additional space,and inventory freeing up, our goal is to once again reach out personally to allof our customers, but please be patient as it may take a week or two. I invite you to stop by our facility at 11875West Little York, Suite 1001, Houston Texas 77041 if you are in Houston, Texas,to say "hi" or to give us a call at 855- 548-2464 (toll free) if youhave any questions

Bullcrap! I place and order with them in early January. Got a phone call the next day saying the items were back ordered and they should have them by March. March has come and gone. I understand the current situation with reloading supplies and am very patient. They charged my credit card even thought they said I would not be charged until the items shipped and they don't answer emails or return phone calls. This is not very professional! I advise not to do business with them especially when there are so many other companies that are honest and actually have customer service. You lost a good customer Lohman!

I had bad experience.

Small Pistol

They seem like they're fully stocked with powder and primers. I'm not sure I believe it. Has anyone used this company before? Are they any good?
I DON"T recommend them. I placed order on Oct 11th 2013 on my VISA, for some powder; 2-8lb containers. I ended up purchasing the same powder elsewhere @ 20% less than they charged. I decided, I'll just keep this order too (OK I shoot a lot). Anyhow, received an email from that on 12/30/2013 at 12:52pm that my order was in and I needed to call them back by 1/2/2014 by noon or my order would be cancelled; call them back? this was an email.

Let me see, I got off of work on 12/30 after their business hours, so that basically gave me New Years Eve (which I have to work) and New Years Day (yea like they will be working) and maybe a couple of hours on the 1/2/2014. I sent an email back saying; go ahead and send the powder and charge my VISA; received email that I had to call; good thing I got off early on New Years Eve in time to call. So I call them and get no answer - I guess I need to wait by the phone on them. I wait about an hour - It's News Years Eve - I got things to do. I call back and get to talk to someone; now I know why they wanted me to call; the price had gone up about another 5%. I'm not happy, but go ahead and place the order anyhow. They call me back in 10 minutes saying that they only have one of the 8lb container of powder. Now, I'll be paying entire hazmat fee on only one 8lb containers of powder. I told them to keep their powder. I'll never do (or attempt to do) business with Lohman Arms again.
