FedEx tried delivering mine on 12:30 last Friday. I called FedEx, and they won't hold it at their nearest location until they try delivering two more times.

Now I'm starting to get pissed.

I'll take FedEx over UPS any day.

Well, at least when it comes to my Amazon Prime shit. I've had a good half dozen times over the past 6 months or so where stuff hasn't arrived on time, 2 day or the next day upgrade, because UPS screwed something up.

I suppose I should call Springfield tomorrow and see if I can have them either change my delivery address or just have it held right at the hub off the get go.

I put 50+ rounds through it on Friday and I didn't notice any difference in trigger pull. It had been over 2 months since I last shot it but it feels the same as I remember.

Just got mine. Trigger pull feels a tiny bit longer, but it seems to have a cleaner break and more noticeable reset. I wish I had one that didn't go in to compare side to side which would increase the likelihood of me not speaking out of my ass.

I managed to get a hold of Springfield today and they are setting it up to hold it at the Auburn Hills hub/shipping center when it actually does ship. It sounds like they are working through their first big slug that showed up on the first day or two.

I got my shipment email yesterday. It shows it coming to my HOUSE on Monday. Apparently the woman I sent the request for holding it at the Fedex distro failed me...

I should probably order a holster for it now.

Anyone ever use one of the all kydex IWB holsters?

I'm looking for something hippy douche friendly.

Ok, now I'm on the Fedex hate band wagon, but I'm also blaming Springfield on this one.

They sent the gun so that there can't be any reroutes, delivery holds, or anything. It requires an adult signature at the ship to address.

I called and talked to FedEx and the lady even suggested that maybe I could have a neighbor sign for it.

My comment was, "So this item, that the shipper has deemed important enough to have an adult signature can have ANY adult sign for it, even one that isn't me, it could be my neighbor, the guy hanging window quote flyers on my door, or just some guy hanging out on my front porch casing the joint, yet you won't hold it at the hub, where I have to show up, with my photo ID that proves I'm the person the package is intended for? Doesn't that seem kinda silly?" Then she just basically restated that the shipper sent it so that there can't be any reroutes, holds, etc.... Ugh...

Anyway I guess I can go online and schedule a time for FedEx to show up and drop it off.

Interesting.

I had the Mtac for my G26 and I liked it a lot. But this fits the hippy douche option...

Thanks :)
