So I shipped my long slide and a rmr off to Bowie last week thur. Checked the tracking today and it does not exsist. UPS may have lost It. I emailed Bowie to see if it got there. I pray it did. I insured it but not that it does any good being I cant get anothet long slide right now anyways. Called UPS and they have no record of it.

Guess i wont be getting much sleep tonight.

Did you ship it through a "UPS Store", or one of those mailbox stores? I occasionally use a mailbox store, and I rarely get the shipping notice or see it in the system before the package is received (or a week or two later). Almost as bad as Postal.

Shipped it through my shop. UPS picks up from my place.

Well, all the postal systems seem to have their issues, but I just hate using UPS, and avoid it whenever possible.

I have never had a problem with them before. I have had stuff go missing from usps and fed ex.

I hope its not gone.

Ouch! I have pick-ups once in a while, and they're in the system within an hour. Good luck! I hope the driver didn't drop the ball. If he didn't scan it right away (I always insist they do), I don't know. UPS has always been better for me than the others. It's a box with an address on it, so hope for the best.

As of late everything I have ordered or shipped has taken a day or so to show up in their system, give it some time, hopefully it's not gone, let's be positive.

He shipped it last week. It should have arrived at its destination already.

UPS ground is 5 business days the weekend doesn't count......depending on when Thursday he shipped it early or late it might or might not have left his local processing center that day, 5 business days puts him at today.

Besides I'm just trying to be positive, thanks for throwing more negativity at the guy :wavey:

Citous, Hope everthing finds its way to the proper destination!
Things do happen, here lately I have been double boxing things with address info on the inside of packages I send out. Sometimes I think the target packages with insured items...soccer, football, basketball are just a few things I picture as the package goes thru the shipping process. LOL :dunno:

I hate to be the guy who dumps bad on a hopeful member of GlockTalk... but a few years ago UPS was in the middle of a theft scandal. They were caught skimming certain items and labeling them as lost or not received, only to sell them on eBay and a few other websites. This is how I purchased my Cairns 1010 fire helmet for less than $80.oo.

I am not saying this is what happened. I hope and pray it did not happen, but they have a poor track record with this sort of thing going back over 10 years now.

Just heard from bowie he has it. That is a relief. How can a package not show up in their system if they delivered it? Who knows. But my stuff is safe.

Real glad to hear it made it! After just reading your post, I wasn't going to be able to sleep tonight, worrying about, where it might be! I don't mind ordering things, but I hate shipping things off, especially things, that are hard to replace!

Probably a data entry error or other system glitch along the way. It happens.
