    OK... so today I received a email from Shot in the Dark. I have tried to contact them since last year. Right before Halloween I finally received my horn from them. It was a piece of crap. The horn was NOT what I paid over $400 for at transworld. The horn itself was a cheep piece of plastic that had very little sound, the lights did not work at all, wires were not soldered and I had to redo them. I NEVER received a return phone call from them nor a response to my emails. I sent them a ruturn email that was very up front basically asking them what they were going to do about the crap they sent out last year.
    Are they being allowed to have a booth at transworld again? Seriously I am not the only one who had this problem. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM! The horns they had last year at transworld were cool the one I was sent was crap.

    This vendor is surely CASH and CARRY only. We tried to buy a horn and only received it a few days before opening, and we were VERY lucky.

    I am surprised some vendors are welcome at shows with the way they treat their customers.

    Looking forward to see the new goodies that Mike has come up with for this year. I have ordered from these guys for 3-4 years now and everything still works great, durable and my actors LOVE to use them.

    Well thats ONE person who is happy with them... but last year there was a thread on here that pretty much EVERYONE was having trouble with them. If you order from this company dont say you were not warned. I did post on their facebook page...After a year I finally got an answer. They are going to replace the horn supposedly. I will let you know when they do but Im not going to hold my breath till it happens.

    But I got my stuff. Sparking knife set runs all night on a battery charge. Really a good thing for actors that lack intensity if you feel comfortable with them holding sparking items around customers. Would not give to someone who can't think safety safety safety and then thrusting them into someones face.

    I ordered from Mike last year in late May early June with a promised delivery of August. Never saw them. I had repeated promises from Mike that I would get them all the way up to October. After October I laid off for a bit and I was able to get him tracked down at Transworld and finally got the gloves I ordered from him there.

    The products look and work great, I just never understood what the problem was getting them shipped on time to me. If your going to deal with him, it has to be cash and carry.

    Looks like ordering from Shot In The Dark is turning out to be a shot in the dark. *rim shot*
