I just had one taken during shipment last month, was even tracking the package with their package tracker, talked to a local dealer and he said they have cases of ammo that are delivered missing boxes regularlyYou can say that about UPS theft. I won’t mention how many long guns and handguns that we have ordered and never show up at shop. Don’t get me started about the ammo either!!
Multiple points to be made.Or what the point is …if I buy a gun from a licensed dealer who is already recording all the information. And it’s not like I’m going to use a credit card on a private sale so I really don’t get what the point is
I don't think that the problem is those swamp things but the woke CEO'S, and decision makers within these companies.
They will make the same decisions no matter who is in the swamp.
I just found this out today as well. It used to just have to go to an FFL.Sold a rifle
Went to UPS to ship it to the FFL which was in fact the buyer
UPS said “no can-do”
Said that as of the end of August only FFL’s can ship rifles?????
Is this a UPS thing or is this a ATF thing???
I am blown away as I have shipped dozens of rifles legally in the past. Always just me to the FFL
So apparently now I have to go to some FFL who is going to charge me a fee to ship the rifle on top of the shipping???
There was no "being sneaky" or being a "careless dumbass" involved.I think it is being misunderstood what the new requirements are. It is not an ffl to ffl in the sense you have to go to a gunshop to drop the rifle off. All that has to happen is the ffl (manufacturer or where the gun is being sold to) goes online on their ups acct, initiates the shipment, emails you the label, and you drop the box off at a ups customer center same ad before
Having a private carrier accept guns is a privilege. The only people screwing this up for everyone are gunowners themselves being sneaky or careless dumbasses.
Yeah when I said I don’t see the point… I meant a legitimate reason.Multiple points to be made.
The high lights, ATF is not supposed to use the forms (4473) for tracking purposes. By law they can not keep electronic copies of them that will allow them to be searched by say a name, SS#, or address.
The CC companies have huge databases that revolve around tracking transactions. Their system is already in place and developed to flag certain transactions. It is a way to circumvent the law of a gun registry.
This move has nothing to do with keeping the public safe. If you can't see the agenda and what is taking place...

I was shipping to a FFL and I declared I was shipping a firearm and had a copy of the FFLs license in hand.. Like I have done dozens of times before in perfectly legal transactions.
Maybe you should save your opinions until you are not ignorant about what you are saying.
No. It is a policy from UPS that took effect Sept 5 (think that was the day). Direct pressure from anti-gun Senators on UPS and they caved. The letter has been published. I received notice from Guntabs in early September. Go to their website, or google it, and you can read the letter and see who signed.But is it really UPS or is it federal government requirement?
Yes. I was going to print the USPS policy, but someone above already did. They are now the only option for an individual to ship a long gun. Be sure to insure it; they don't have the best track record either.Can you ship a gun through the post office?
Can you ship a gun through the post office?
I have just started reading the theads to the OP, thus you may have had your question answered multiple times:
No!! You can not ship firearms or Any hazardous materials: ie reloading and black powder including black powder substitutes, primers, loaded/live ammo, etc. via USPS. Brass, bullets, "dummy" ammo or "snap caps" can go USPS.
FEDEX is/can be an alternative to using UPS, But don't be surprised if the clerk behind the counter tells you no we can't ship it. They're either too dumb or they (themselves) are refusing to ship your firearm(s). Those clerks that are willing will run you through the hazmat gambit before they maybe allow hazmat items to be shipped. Unless you have a preprinted return or other shipping label they can print from their computer.
There was something awhile back when UPS first "rumored" they were no longer going to ship/handle/transport firearms and hazmat related firearms items that DHL would be a likely carrier. I haven't kept up with the latest news on this subject maybe, if not already posted, others more up to date on this debacle can gives some insight on getting firearms and alike accessories shipped.
Yes, but for long guns only (not a handgun).
Have a copy of the dealers license you are shipping to.
Unless this has changed recently as well...
