Crumpled up box??...........Fellas I sent it just as recieved and the box was in great shape when it left here priority, I thought about a bigger and stronger box, but being hurt and the nearest "Box" buying store being 34 miles away, I just sent it as recieved, I'd sure like to see a pic of that box after it got there. hell I might just send Kirks in a plastic bag,lol,lol... just kidding...... I'll send it in an arrow box like I always do...........Glad it got there safe, and ol sasquatch arms didn't pull it in half trying to shoot it,lol,lol........

Hey Steve,

i get razzed a lot building wood crates for my bows. but i've got a buddy that works for UPS side by side with the guys that load the planes. They are not real particular about how that stuff gets thown around, and the ends of those boxes get smashed pretty easy. This is no reflection on you at all bro. These guys that deliver stuff, don't give a damn what the cargo is. it's just a job to them. These light weight boxes get thrown up on top of the loads all the time litterally.

everyone has to be anal about something i suppose. this is one that bothers me a lot, so i hedge my bets. ;)

I understand.................. UPS is just a cost effective was of spelling OOPS! I only ship priority and have never had a problem shipping or recieving anything from them, the others, ups, fedex, and dhs......they must have a football field on those planes!!!

I second that Voodoo, ups is the pitts and the sh%$#. Priority mail by Usps has never let me down, shipping or recieving.

Jared, That is one cute kiddo ya got there, sure shes yours? :D
This sure was a cool deal to be able to be involved in and the fun alot of us had in the process was priceless. It actually brought friends together from distances that they may not have taken time for otherwise.
Jared, I envy you buddy! :mrgreen: you have something now of priceless value that I can only wish to have. That doesnt mean not to use it!!!! It is only a meterial item so have as much fun using it as we all did being involved with its creation. 8-)
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!
