...they're gonna put me in the MUH-vees!!" (Beatles)

Chips and Bits per usual came thru like champs on my latest order. They always include their latest print catalog. Opened it, page three and there is Matrix at the top, UV co-featured with BCT Commander. Under that in a sub-feature box, is MCLV. Watchtower is included in the other PC Wargames as is Desert Fox 1941. ("Watchtower" so far as I know is not two words, but just because Webster's says it is one word, we won't let that bother us, right?)

Yes it is, I'm a little surprised C&B would continue to show Desert Fox if it's been out of stock for some time - but their catalogs aren't the best of what they do anyway. If you went to order DF, you would quickly see it is not available and I don't think they would try to fast track you if you asked them about when they were gong to restock.

I ordered BCT Commander - on June 3 they were out of stock on the item. It showed up in this morning's mail, they had shipped June 6. Granted, they didn't notify me, but that's the way they are. They have the item, they ship it and no crapping around - they say "momentarily", they mean it - and ship same day they receive their restock.

Some vendors talk a lot and don't deliver much - C&B is similar to the girl in the John Wayne movie: "She don't talk much ... but she got a CRAZY body." C&B is the only vendor I would implicitly trust with an advance order - not a pre-order, because "pre-order" means I would be ordering it before I ordered it.

I don't know how to do that - I do know how to make a drop ship, or advance order. That I can do. So can C&B - better than anyone really in ANY Internet vending retail specialty I have come across.

Nope, I don't get a penny from C&B - its a case of credit where credit is due.

I have purchased many things for a long while from C and B. A good outfit that has never failed me yet.

Sales personnel are much more knowledgable than most I have encountered.

Now watch them mess someone up after I went out on a limb.

C&B doesn't always want to tell me what they are doing online - call them they will update you instantly. But they will have shipped as much as 24 hours before their database is updated.

I messed up my address once - they called me by telephone, all the way from Vermont, to get it straightened out. Not many vendors do things like that.

In these days of "don't reply to this e-mail message, we are going to take as long as we want to answer your question and don't want to be interrupted " - C&B is refreshing. They got it, they ship it. Same day, if you order before ~3 PM EST. I don't get "look Ma! no hands!" e-mails from them - the merchandise shows up in my mailbox days before I expect it to be there. People who really do what they claim they will do don't need to brag constantly about it.
