All About Me
What everyone should know about me
I always try to treat my buyers & sellers with respect, fairness & honesty & like I would want my mother or sister treated. I hold down a full time job, & ocassionally a 1200 lb horse, but I try to stay on top of both and my EBAY duties.

As of this writing, I have been cheerfully doing EBAY for over three years. I discovered while customizing a motorcycle for my trip cross country. When I realized I could SELL my stock parts on EBAY while at the same time buying my custom parts...well I started freeing up a lot of garage space after that, and started my little boy's college fund too.
PAYPAL Money Order or personal check. I have never in 3 years been burned on a personal check. Frankly it's cheaper for you than a MO and easier to track too. Checks don't bother me at all.
I try to ship 24 hrs of receiving payment, but sometimes my work schedule does not permit this. But here is my system. I am usually off Mondays, so if my auctions end on a Sunday, and you pay right away, pretty good odds I'll ship it the next morning. During the week, I usually ship the NEXT day. I am lucky enough to live just up the street from a USPS Processing Station,so I can drop off mail at the dock 24hrs a day.
International orders require a FACE TO FACE with the postal clerks during business hours and I uusally wait until mid week so I can process several at the same time and save trips. I DO NOT charge any special extra handling fees on international orders over domestic orders.
I try very hard to get the right fit info on my holsters, but ocassinally due to gun modifications,or a holster being one vintage and a gun another, they just don't fit right. I also know buying bascially mail order as EBAY is, you don't get to see and handle things the way you do in a brocks and mortar store. So I pretty much have a 100 percent return policy, but I do like to ask questions so I don't make other another mistake in the future.
My Email is JESSDFAX@aol.com (like JUST THE FACTS). My phone is 562-743-6210. I am happy to take your call, keep in mind I am on Pacific Standard Time.
A Little Insight to My Auction Styles
I like to list by groups. Meaning I will do Bianchi Holsters one week, Brauer the next, Safariland the next etc. I have about a 2 month rotation which covers the major brands.
However if I am sitting on a large stock of holsters, like the 3000 or so Brauers that I have now, I may put a few on each week, or rotate them more often than eight weeks. I like to run my auctions from SUNDAY to SUNDAY, usually starting them around 3pm and ending around 8pm PST. I figure this makes it easier for me and you to remember.
I am a wordy fella in my auctions. I know it. But I really enjoy researching my items and want to give you the most info that I can. If you want to cut to the chase, read the top, middle and end paragraphs, and you will have the model of the holster, what it fits and the condition and you can skip my history lessons and sometimes corny humor and occasional swipes at some of Ebays policies.
TALK TO ME & FEEDBACK
I am always happy to be educated. If you see an error in my listing, or want to add some info, especially on the vintage items, please feel free to contact me and let me know. I will never be offended and will be grateful. If you can think of someting to improve my listings, feel free to suggest it. I am very input and customer service oriented.
Though there is much E-BATE over this , I leave feedback as a buyer, when I receive the item and all is well. I leave feedback as a seller when the buyer does and I know all is well. I've worked hard at keeping 100%, and I consider how I treat returns and how a buyer treats adjustments and returns as a part of the whole picture of the sale. Though it has not happened top me, I have heard horror stories of chargebacks and switched items being returned. I have even sometimes shipped in advance of payment, Usually by accident. Thanks Mike
