I've been in the market for a bullpup shotgun for awhile now. After reading and drooling over what I saw, I settled on the Bullpup BP12. Unfortunately for me none of the local gun shops sell that firearm nor any other semi auto shotgun for that matter but I was informed of looking into a AR platform shotgun. I go online and found the gun I was searching for but the asking price was too much for me. I took the one sale's man advise and looked into the AR side and found something in my price range, looked good, and has great reviews. It was the AR12 made by Panzer Arms. I went back to my fav gun shop and talked about online ordering and pricing they would charge, got all that taken care of. I went and ordered the firearm, all I had to do was have the gun shop fax or email the following. My name, order number, and the shop's FFL license before they would ship. I emailed the shop and they sent out a email to the online dealer the next morning.
Fast forward to today, I get a email saying they haven't received FFL for my order. I emailed them back and told them the shop sent a email Friday morning with the requested information and also told them the shop's name and address. They responded they have them on file but their FFL had expired at the beginning of this month. I contacted the store and they said they attached the new FFL to the email and have the dealer check again. I called the dealer and she checks the emails and said they got nothing on a new FFL. So, I call the store again and told them and they would resend the email. Right now I'm lost cause there is nothing I can do, the dealer has my money and if I cancel it's a 20% restock fee, the store has emailed them twice now, and when I emailed the dealer this afternoon I didn't receive a response. Hopeful tomorrow everything is worked out.
Open Carry, shhh it's a dirty secret.
