Pentax Store Shipping?

About how long does Pentax USA store take to ship something regular mail? Do they actually order from Japan or do they have their own stock? I was thinking of ordering the M42 to K adapter but I won't be able to till after Thanksgiving. Think I could order it the last week of November or the first week of Dec and still have it here in time for Dec's holidays? Just checking. I've never ordered anything from Pentax before.

Except for special order items, which are few if not nonexistent, I'm pretty sure everything ships from their Colorado warehouse. Don't quote me on that, though, since they might have changed that for the new web store. That's how it used to be a couple years ago, though.

Thanks Adam.

I wish I could order one now but unfortunately it looks like money is going to be tight for the rest of the year. Our desktop computer is having some serious issues and it's looking like I am going to have to practically empty the kitty bank to fix them.

Right now I'm really glad I got my cheaper than dirt *ist or I'd be crying right now. That fund was my K-x money, and this is about the third time I've had to give it up for "necessary repairs" on something household related!

I'm still hoping that I can scrounge up the extra $37 to grab one before Christmas hits. I really want to be able to use my M42's with my *ist before I am too old to get around to use them! I'm not putting one of those cheapie adapters on my *ist though. No way, no how, not after all the horror stories I've read lately about how they get "stuck" and all.
