Aw, rats!

I've just received five "DAWs*" from them from an Internet purchase for a client… followed up by a letter "correcting" the invoice and packing list accompanying the shipment!

Guess I may be contacted as part of the BATFE investigation!

The purchasers are coming to pick-up their nifty new acquisitions on Monday! Mebbe I should inspect the firing mechanisms before they get here, make sure that everything is in non-full auto order!
