Due to circumstances beyond our control we are no longer filling orders for sets. Our turn around time is about 4 days now compared to one to two under normal circumstances. Most of our suppliers are out of inventory, are not filling orders or are taking longer than usual to complete our orders. In light of this, we are no longer back ordering any thing. This scene is changing faster than we can update the website so it may show something in stock that is not. We will fill with inventory we have and refund what we do not have.
