    I need 2 of the Vista rail lights w/brass plate to complete a project I am working on.
    Does anyone happen to have a couple they wish to part with? Thanks!

    Why not go through your distributor? If they don't carry Vista, I know that Longhorn does. I don't have any in stock right now or I would be happy to sell you a couple.

    Thanks Paul I might check with Rich and see if they have any in stock. I was just trying to avoid the 2 week timeframe if they had to be ordered from Vista.

    That's a laugh. Maybe 24 hours after they process the order, then another 4-5 days travel time.

    Wow, you need to fire your distributor. I get my orders in 4 days, 5 if I order later in the day.

    I don't use much Vista, so I really don't know. I was just being sarcastic. My distributor and I have been doing business for quite some time, and they have a pretty good handle on what I use most. They stock massive amounts of what I typically order, and it doesn't hurt that they are a hub for their other locations as well. I do know, from experience, that it makes quite a difference in delivery time if the distributor sits on the order and doesn't send it to the manu right away. I had to jump up and down on a couple of occasions to get them to stop doing that, but that was several years ago.

    Geez I didnt mean to start an argument guys. :) I have no idea how long it takes to get things from Vista generally. I once orderd a Vista fixture thru JDL and it turned out to be a pain plus I had to wait awhile to get it. Can't remember how long it took. I usually get all my stuff from Gerry at TerraDek in a day or two unless they dont happen to have it in stock so that is great ......but he doesn't carry Vista. I have ordered things from both coasts and if they process my order right away I have it in 4 days. That is UPS ground. Thats not bad considering I am about smack dab in the middle of the country....a little north. Think about it tho.... if a distributor sits on your order request for a few days and the manu. does the same it can get to be a couple weeks.

    This is why I just asked if anyone had a couple they werent going to be using for awhile. It could end up being much quicker for me. Thanks everyone!
