Ammo-One.com — There is no guarantee that what you see is what you get
I recently visited a web site called ammo-one.com owned and operated by a Mr. David Call.. Based on the pictures and written descriptions of the products that he offers, I made a $50 purchase. Mr. Call also offers a service wherein the live ammunition that he sells can be rendered inert in order to comply with shipping and governmental regulations. I opted to pay him for this service. Unfortunately, Mr. Call neglected to inform me that the process he uses to deactivate the ammunition substantially changes its appearance and reduces its collector value. As part of his deactivation process, Mr. Call saws the noses of the bullets off exposing the jacket walls and lead fillings. Nowhere on his web site nor in his e-mails does Mr. Call warn potential customers that his chosen method of deactivation actually damages the products that he is selling even before you receive them. AND HE CHARGES YOU FOR THE SERVICE.
Consumers who visit his website are not warned that the products that they actually receive may differ markedly from their depictions on the site. Because of this omission, I believe that Mr. Call is engaging in false and misleading advertising. Furthermore, Mr. Call’s refusal to address complaints about the products / services that he offers and his unwillingness to even consider compensation borders on fraud. If you are a cartridge collector like me, the ammo advertised on Mr. Call’s site look’s appealing. BUT BE WARNED. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU’LL GET!
