Unless it has to go to an FFL, and is governed by the BATF, then I ship machined metal parts too.

I was asked point blank whether it was a gun part. The guy noticed that it was going to an Arms company. I actualy had no intention of telling, just couldn't lie when asked point blank.

Why did you tell them what was in the package in the first place?

I have shipped "plumbing supplies", "metal fabrications" & "craft materials". I don't believe that I've ever shipped "gun parts".

The Postal Service doesn't ask or care. Even when I ship boxes with rifles that look like boxes with rifles no one asks.

I understand that, I did the same at the post office once and then had to explain the laws regarding shipping a firearm to the lady behind the counter and it was just a barrel I was shipping. Thankfully she's the only one I've had trouble with there and it was only once. Several others there are shooters who understand the laws and ask what's in the packages because they are interested, not to give me any grief.

Eddybo,

I've been in that same store myself. It and the one at Brookhaven is owned by the same person I believe. I have experienced the same thing there myself, heck they are even nervous about shipping a rifle scope for heaven sakes. Like everyone else suggests just tell them its something else and insure it. If I ship an barrel blank I tell them its a "deep drilled stainless rod".

Deep drilled stainless rod that is a good one. But I am not going back in that store. I will just go down to the UPS hub I have friends that work there, even hunt with some of them.

I called the customer service for the UPS store, they said they do not ship firearms but have no policy against gun parts......the customer service guy wouldnt send me anything in writing stating this.

Re: Ups store hates the 2nd amendment?

OK Eddybo and Jimbo You 2 know I'm a UPS employee so you have two options. First, come to the terminal in McComb or go online, set up an account (which is free). Then you can hand your package to any UPS man or bring to the UPS store and say you are dropping off for a friend and, if asked, that you don't know what is in the box.
