    It would be a lot easier to shop if the firehouse.com front page didn't link to non-existant items. You've been running the kid's firefighter rescue set for days but clicking on the link gets you an invalid product message from Gall's.

      I've been having the same problem all last night. I hope it fixed up soon!!


      If you sent us to HELL, WE'D PUT IT OUT!!

      **And of course these are only my opinion and only mine. Don't take it out on anyone else but me.**

                If you are aware of a dead link, please e-mail us at any time to WebTeam @ Firehouse.com.

                And Dalmation, those rules are for the users, you are correct, but we do use these forums ourselves as we see needed. No need for a big discussion here, if it wasn't for sponsors, e-commerce and the like, these forums wouldnt exist.
