WildAlaska Feedback?

Ok, Ken from WildAlaska suggested that I ask for some quick feedback on him. If anyone has had a positive or negative experience, then please chime in now. If good reviews are made, then I will be purchasing an item or two shortly. Thanks everyone!

Why not simply do a search yourself in this forum for "wildalaska" and "Any date" as the time period. I found a bunch of threads about him.

Dude, Ken is as kosher as they come (except when he eats bacon).

I've bought a pile of stuff from him, and had him sell a pile of junk for me. Buy with confidence. There is literally nobody I would rather do business with when it comes to shooty stuff.

Very friendly, quick service, cannot wait to get my "goodies". I'm confident I'm going to have a good overall experience.

Good guy... handled the transfer of a couple of guns for one of the kiddos when they got swooped off to AK by Uncle Sugar; treated 'em right. Met him in person, too. He's not weird like some people, who I've never met in person. No bears ate me in his parking lot.

How's that for a left-handed compliment?

Not that Mr. Ken needs more postive feedback, jsut figured I'd comment on shipping. I ordered the two headlamps Friday evening at what I think was close to 3PM EST, the lights would have been here Monday but that was Mr. Columbus's day, and the lights were here Tuesday but nobody was home, so I picked up up today. That's shipping from Alaska to Tennesse! Granted, most of the time USPS priority is fast, but you can tell the shipping folks up there in Santa's sh........I mean WildWest guns do not waste any time getting things shipped out. A+ in every way.

No issues at all with the couple of transactions I've conducted with him.

If he ever has something I want again, I'll have no hesitation about doing the deal.

don't deal with him....

HE will take your money and give you a really nice gun and then talk your ear off...

Worst thing is you will want to call again and buy more stuff and before you know it, he will have all your cash and you will have a lot of guns and other related stuff....

true story. luckily I have been too broke to afford the "normal" guns I used to buy (before kids and the wife decided to raid my gun funds)...

Just saw this part of the forum. Saw an ad for Surefire flashlights, called the man on a Friday afternoon in Maryland, got my toys in the mailbox Monday morning. Incredible service, and good phone too. Not possible to recommend him too highly. And yes, it was a great deal as well.

What's not to love?
