    I was one of the winners of week 3 Wild Wednesday. With California’s restrictive gun laws, the gun I won wasn’t CA DOJ compliant. Springfield’s customer service went the extra distances for me and made arrangements for me to receive an approved pistol. Yes, they had an overwhelm server one day, that’s the price for a great promotion.

    I thought it was just me, sorry to see you had trouble too. Contests, specials, prizes and freebies can backfire.
    I wasnt looking for a free lunch, I was looking for a gun to purchase. They have run me off.

    What a complete cluster-F… over at Springfield Armory website. Website “down for maintenance”, this morning. Won’t let you login. If you do get logged in, it won’t let you vote. It constantly says “you can only vote once per hour” even if your vote never goes through. The countdown timer says “0 minutes until next vote”, but the timer never changes. Your login is just stuck in limbo

    The won’t purge the cache on the webserver, or force a logout so other’s can get in. Their system seemed to work fine all week, but not today. Oh well
