D made it home safely yesterday and of course at the top of our list of things to do was to go pick up the Lady! I patiently waited at home for him to finish up at work and come to pick me up so we could head out to get it. He wanted to change and spent a little while with the boys then we were on our way. I had no idea of the disappointment that would follow. We arrived knowing it would be to late to hit the range by the time we were done in the store but having ever intention of being able to go tomorrow as soon as D was done with work.
Unfortunately due to incompetent help at the Sportsman's Warehouse we would not be leaving with the Lady! They had not properly provided the information that is required for the background check on our original visit with which had prompted a result of delayed. When we spoke with them yesterday we discovered that we had been lied to by an employee and that while we could legally leave with the Lady Smith a Proceed reply had not yet come back from NICS. Being the responsible people that we are we decided that it would not be wise to actual take the Lady Smith even though legally we were able to. Now what? I'm not sure...they (the store) really seem to not have a clue what they are doing and can't really give and good solid answers. Maybe it is time to shop some where else?
