Chuck,

   Thank you.  Just checked–unfortunately, it’s out of stock, but I’ll keep checking periodically.

Man, that was quick.  It was in stock when I posted it.  I wonder if someone saw my post before you?

Chuck – no offense or animosity intended, just my experience:

 

I wouldn’t accept a book from  rdgunbooks.com if someone paid me!

I purchased a Colt SAA rimfire book from his website.  Shortly after, he emailed me and said his “new employee” mistakenly listed the book as available but he didn’t actually have one available so he had to cancel the sale. In the SAME email he said he DID have “another” one that he would sell to me (for the “going market rate”). 

I then told him I’d found his web sight through eBay (where he also sells) and that his “buy it now” price on eBay for the same book was ALSO lower than the “going market rate” that he quoted me on his “another” book. To which he immediately raised the price on.

Once he’d raised his price on both sites, he stopped communicating with me, and I stopped having interest in doing business with him. I’m sure others have had better results… but I figured I’d share what I’d consider a less than positive dealing with the above mentioned seller.

Sorry to hear that.  I’ve known Randy for years and have bought a lot of books from him and never have had a problem.  I pulled up a page from Ebay.  Look at his sales and ratings.
