Hey everyone,

I hope everyone is surviving and have enough toilet paper :).

On a serious note, we are working and shipping on time. Had to disable Canada Post for now as they are not taking signatures anymore as per my account rep. Since we ship guns, we want signatures hence using UPS only for now.

Also, all overseas orders from China and Turkey are on indefinite halt(Snowpeak, Artemis & KRAL). This is due to multiple reasons. China is not able to send items due to backlogs of orders. Turkey has grounded their airlines. Hence, cannot get anything from KRAL either for now.

I do have good supply in stock though so we are good for now.

Thanks and stay healthy!

Believe they will leave a slip if you say no safe drop. Meaning that the person would have to sign. No risk of them just leaving it at the door. I got something from Canada post.

No one is signing anything anymore. UPS, Purolator, FedEx, CanadaPost... they do have to hand it to someone in person and will take your name if a signature is required.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Main part of the email from CP.

Following the direction of the Public Health Agency of Canada, we continue to introduce new safety measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Until further notice, these safety measures will now include a change to items that are delivered to the door.


To help minimize points of close contact in our communities, we will no longer be requesting signatures for any deliveries to the door. This will eliminate the need for scanners and stylus pens to be passed back and forth during the delivery process of these items.


Instead, where possible, our delivery agents will apply our safe drop process. This means they will leave these items in your mailbox or outside your door if it’s safe to do so. Where it’s not possible to safe drop, our delivery agent will leave a notice card indicating the post office where you can pick up your items by showing proof of identity.


And then don't expect stuff to be on time.

As a result of potential impacts related to our local facilities and air transportation, we are letting you know that effective today (March 18) Canada Post will be suspending our On-time Delivery Guarantees for all parcel services, until further notice. This means that some residents and businesses may begin to experience slower than normal delivery times.

Yup! Precisely what happened today (March 19) to my order coming from CSS and SCHELUDED TO BE DELIVERED BY END OF DAY..according to CP Tracking update. Which DID NOT happen. :x
Normally I should have received delivery since the parcel was Expedited Service and had arrived in the local (facility) Post Office. Just didn't get put OUT FOR DELIVERY today. :cry: Oh well! I don't have anything else to do ...'cept wait, since I'm staying home under 'self confinement' anyway. :mrgreen: abiding the request from the 'authorities'.

Be safe...be clean...and be well !
