Christmas is gone n so is the 1st of the year. Just a (rant) by me. I had a small pkg. that shipped on 1-11-2022. Optics Planet is only maybe 250 miles n northwest of me. Just now got my expected date of 1-24-2022 by carrier DHL. 2 weeks its going to take them, this has to be one of the sorriest shippers in the USA. Now maybe all of this is a new thing ? UPS shows me on another pkg. just a shipping label on tracking. I know that it was delivered to them several days ago from Pa. Lets not let Fedex get away, only took them 3 days to get my tap n bit from Paducah n a week coming from Chicago. Ah yes USPS has gotten about as sorry as they get. Only took a month to get a string to Wv. by way of Oregon, Idaho, Montana n the rest coming back east. We must be living in a 4th World country, just think how much worse its going to get with the Socialists running the Show !

And probably setting in some offshore shipping container somewhere.
I refuse to do business with OP anymore because of similar issues. They once were reliable, not so much anymore and when it comes it won’t be delivered by DHL, trust me.

I agree that DHL is horrible. But, it may not be entirely their fault, as it does seem that anything coming via DHL is coming from our friend(s) in PRC.

They say everything is in stock, that's my problem with them. Question them and only then will they admit it wasn't.
Lesson learned by me, but good luck !.

Some of these companies are sharing loads which can have different routes than if one company did their full delivery.
One company will deliver so far, pass the goods to another company. The company that passed the goods will then
accept goods from that company and go back. This showed on a video a couple of years ago with two head members,
one from each company. This was supposed to be a savings for each company rather than each one going over a similar
route that the other one already travelled. Less carbon in the atmosphere and less fuel burnt as well as time savings.

If one goes to the USPS website and brings up the shipping rates, it is unreal. One has to remember the increase in fuel,
wages and vehicle expense up keep. Wages go up, then everything else goes up, so it ends up less take home pay for the
employee sometimes because they can enter a higher tax bracket.

Wishing you all the best.
Take care.

Not too long ago, I ordered something from Optics Planet. I received my order in 6 weeks for something they had in stock. Don't know if it's just them?
I buy alot of items online from different sources and they all ship pretty quickly.

I have ordered from Optics Planet and their copartner Dvor.com on in stock items and even though I've gotten brand new items at some great prices they never come in in less than 3 weeks and these were Vortex rifles scopes and BOG graphite tripods, noting big or bulky and it wasn't around a holiday or COVID -19. I only order from them now if it's something I absolutely can wait on.

Well evidently all of the delivery services do what they want to regardless of what we want. They will even tell lies ! Umm seems alot of that goes on now including the Crossbow Companies. The fudge factor, embellish marketing hype, Lic. to lie to Customers. I have been to a few Rodeos in my time, appears we live everyday in it now

Having same issue but with USPS. Ordered new arrows from Black Eagle was suppose to be delivered to me by end of week. Now BE is not to blame they shipped same day as I ordered and even saw left there PO same day as ordered and according to PO tracking pkg was suppose to arrive this past Friday, well that didn’t happen and with MLK day on Monday won’t show up Monday either. Just blows my mind how BE is only 6hrs from me and will take over a week to get here ridiculous. Now I’m just hoping they show up b/4 I leave for my trip
