    anybody know if brandons 3 week disclaimer is accurate on back ordered items or is anybody getting their stuff any sooner than that?

    My BB took 6 weeks to get here. I think it depends on why it's backordered. If he is just catching up on orders then 3 weeks or less. In my case, he ran out of the 1.1oz material and it took several weeks for it to arrive, and then a few weeks to make all the units and ship them out.

    I'm guessing this whole "Not American Made" thing really only hits hard with United Statesians, I don't care where it's made as long as it's high quality. I wouldn't be able to buy anything if I only bought Canadian made products.

    No country is self sufficient you will have imports from somewhere.

    There is a reason a lot of things are made in China, they do it well!

    Best answer is simply e-mail or PM Brandon. He has been VERY responsive on all my queries.

    While I get it, that's the first I've heard "United Statesian". I have a BMJ made in China and I dig it. Don't believe for a second that the "primary" decision for a product made in China is quality. It's now almost a must as people won't buy it. If it wasn't significantly cheaper (less expensive), there would be no reason to do it.

    Ya, even I am technically an American (So is the entire western hemisphere).

    I also find I've met a lot of people who believe "American Made" is the end all be all of quality. I know everyone isn't like that but there seems to be this "Buy American" wave sweeping across the country. Which is really good from an economic standpoint, but that isn't the driving force.
