I really appreciate the input from beatstanfurd & LBDamned!
After ready my post again, I realize that I'm a little cranky this morning.... rough week.
My issue really boils down to a disappointment in the communication from Jack Ross. Something like a post on their site explaining their unique process of charging prematurely would go along way. This is my first experience with ANY vendor EVER that charges for product months before it ships (unless it is a Special Order - non stock item).
I'll do my due-diligence and make a decision on how to handle the situation.
Thanks again for the comments!
