Since my last post, the armor is the last thing I'm waiting to come in.
I ordered a bucket from HSP, and then the day after, asked if the helmets were in stock. Was told yes, and they would ship in 11 days... Its been longer than 11 days.
Jan 14 ordered
Jan 15 asked if the items in stock.
Jan 16 "This item is in stock ro ship within 10 working days please let me know of we can help any further. Joe"
Jan 29, asked for shipping info
Jan 31, asked again for shipping info, the Etsy ship deadline was on Jan 28 (No response)
Feb 8, (ask on facebook) I ask if the R1 TKs are being worked on at all, the last time a helmet was shown was Janurary 3 "The final ones should be pulled next week. Got pneumonia and had some vac machine issues . Just had to finance this mother for 14k .(image attached of huge machine)"
Feb 11 (responce on Etsy) "Hi XXXXXX,
Sorry for the delayed response. I'm a bit backed up and have had pneumonia for the last 3 days while setting up a new vac table. I didn't forget you. We'll get it shipped as soon as possible. You'll receive a tracking email when it ships. Thanks for your patience."
Feb 18, I ask what the email will be so that I don't have it accidentally sent to spam folder. (No response on Etsy. )
March 3, (Facebook) I ask for any good news.
850armorworks gave me an estimate of their armor shipping around March 13. If Headshotprops continues to ignore me, or has no shipping information at that date, I'll be highly disappointed, and will have to swallow up my 'Giving the benefit of the doubt'. On Facebook, there's been another shopper who says there's been no contact with them at all concerning their order. My goal of having armor built by July is coming closer, and the one thing I intended to do, was finish the helmet before the body comes. Perhaps I'll just have to use my Black Series helmet.
I should have taken the things I saw on the forums more seriously, concerning Headshot props. There were a handful of positive results, but the bad, is bad. Its just very hard to find R1 gear anywhere. You have HSP, and Jimmi. I chose HSP just because I would rather not deal with fiberglass, and didn't know where to contact Jimmi, as he is inactive on here.
