Decades ago I suffered a financial setback and had to move to a cheap apartment in a poor, rather bad (chalk outlines and police tape around patches of blood outside, or in the bldg. lobby at least once a month) neighborhood. Had to stay there for a few years till things got lots better. Still, I kept my C&R and bemused myself by ordering some of the new, but slightly used, and incredibly cheap stuff coming in from China, Brazil and Argentina and advertised in the Shotgun News in those happy days. Anyhow, one day when I was expecting an order, or at least one of those little yellow 'we tried to deliver' sheets, to arrive at my door, instead that evening there came a knock at my door. The apartment next door had been the recipient of a police raid only a few days earlier and the occupant hauled away in cuffs. There, in the hallway was the occupier of that apartment with a box delivered via UPS. When UPS knocked on my empty apartment door he had just gotten out so he heard the knocking. He stuck his head out from next door and the driver happily asked him to just give it to me when I came home, so he did. A very nice Norwegian 1914 .45 was in the box if my memory is accurate. I called UPS about it and was told that since the shipper had not used Assured of Delivery (with a signature) no UPS policy had been violated by the driver. Thirty years later the moral of that experience still sticks with me. Always use AOD with a signature required.
