Since I am an FFL 07 I ship all handguns via USPS Flat Rate Priority, $16.45. I ship my rifles via UPS Ground and it's usually less than $20 to do that. Next time have an FFL ship it for you, it'll be cheaper.

Always go back to the people who sold you the item.
Lol. Every day I got one of their boxes. Not a single one was in a good box. You should have seen some of the class 5 receivers I've delivered. A lot of time the box disappears and the label is taped to the part.

It really makes me nervous to order some items through these folks after working in the system.

Yup. I actually called Curt and spoke to a guy who took a while to answer because "he was out back throwing stuff in the dumpster". I told him his company has piss-poor crating and shipping policies, and he told me (in not so many words), that he didn't give a $hit. Nice. That's all too bad, because their actual product is very good.

That's just pure laziness ....... bringing it to the door is part of the shipping cost .... that right there is what's wrong with america

Had a friend in Memphis who worked at this company that made lighting products. His job was crating and shipping the products. I was surprised that a small mostly custom-work company had an employee whose sole responsibility was crating and shipping their stuff. Then he pulled out a $20 bill and explained that the "light" in the center on the back of that bill was produced by his employer. Good products need good packaging.

Thank goodness, the times I shipped guns back to their maker or to an FFL went smoothly at the local FedEx.

Hmmm, I don't have a 20 on hand right now. Not sure what you mean....

I have shiped a few guns back to manufacturers. Most will provide a shippin label and cover the cost of the shipping. S&W does this. I box it up, call Fedex and they come to the house to pick it up. You just must tell the driver it is a firearm. I never had any issues with this.

The UPS drivers and workers are members of the anti-gun Teamsters Union. They also support Obama and his agenda. Every time I have to pay them for any thing, I feel like I am shooting myself in the foot.

yes the drivers are part of the Teamsters Union, but from what i saw personally, the drivers are being screwwed over royally by their own union.

now it may vary and probably does, but when i worked there, the vast majority of the drivers were very pro-gun!
