It might be convenient for some, but I consider the copy of my request letter part of the package. It will only save a few days while the paper request is in the mail. I'll still mail mine with a check.This is really convenient and I didn't realize it until just now:
I believe they have to search old ledgers by hand as the information is not in a data base.I will not pay $100 and wait 3-4 months for information on my SAAs they can pull up on their computer in 15 seconds. In most all cases I can tell if my SAA is original. What I want to know is where was it shipped. $150 is a lot to pay just be told what you already know about the gun, and that it was shipped to Simmons Hardware. I would pay $50 just to know what the shipping destination was, no letter. 15 seconds work on their part. If it is not just another hardware store gun I would pay the full amount and get a letter. They could make a lot money with this service. I suggested it to the archives, but they rejected it.
