When I ordered an AT102EDL back in early June I received what I would call an order confirmation which included an order number. Hasn't been charged to my card yet of course.
Interesting. Seems like there is no rhyme or reason to how orders are handled. We’ll have to see what Mike says. I paid under the assumption at the time that the scopes were actually in stock because that’s what the website said. It was only after I called that I learned they were still in Customs.
