This was the first time I did business with Red Carpet. To be honest I never heard of them before. I was looking for a specific scope and ran across them by accident. I took a leap of faith and ordered from them. I was a bit of a headache…not totally my fault mind you but I must have ordered and canceled several times and they were very accommodating. When the item finally came back into stock they contacted me directly and got my order completed promptly. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
