    That is a wonderful story and a magnificent example of stellar customer service. Hats off to BUCK for honoring their warrantee on such an abused beater. I liked BUCK already, but this gives me a new appreciation for the company.

    :bounce:


    Thanks for the update Blitz, I'm really glad you kept things going and didn't let that rotten incident get to you.

    Blitzwing I got a pm over the weekend from AK47Uprising stating he was shipping either Monday or Tuesday. That being said haven't got any kind of conformation yet.

    The gerber drop point and key chain tape measure are from me.
    The gerber never saw any use, I always really liked it but it was just too large a knife for my needs
    I hope you have more use for it. :)

    That is one of the few gerbers I have considered purchasing, I've heard a lot of good things about it. Of course the shard come in handy all the time too.

    Don't really know why I took it. I haven't played in nearly 20 years. Guess you never know when you may need to make a d20 agility check.

    I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that the box is on its way to me I believe, but I haven't received it yet. I'll post when I do.

    I received box b. I have to say, it wasn't what I expected. Also, the shipping is now around $16 due to weight. I signed up over a year ago (I think, don't really remember signing up) and don't think I am interested in participating again.

    I took a TEC dangler and a fountain pen. I am not sure what I'll add before shipping, but I'm pretty sure it will be an "upgrade" in comparison with what I've taken, as I'm more comfortable that way. I will ship tomorrow or Tuesday.

    Hmmm. Weight shouldn't matter if it's still in a USPS medium flat rate box as specified in the OP.

    That my fault. I grabbed a large box and didn't realize until a few days later when my wife told me she spent $17 dollars to ship it. There are definitely a lot of things in the box that aren't worth a lot. I know I put in a bunch of stuff right before shipping that I thought would be interesting to someone but isn't really valuable. I was just filling up space after I made my trades. (I really don't know how I didn't realize that I was adding in a lot more volume then I took out of an already full box)
    Anyway, it should be very obvious what was just put in as filler. Speaking just for myself, I think someone eventually really would want the items I put in, but I would rather see them thrown in the trash then make everyone pay an extra $5 or more to ship the box back and forth.

    Does the picture of what's in the box have to be a spread of every item? If so it'll have to be several pictures. If not, I'll just take a general picture of what's in it. Taking pictures soon.
