Re: Interesting Handgun Auction

I believe it's an ATF requirement on handguns. AT least that's what the dealer told me when I ordered a revolver they didn't have on the shelf. He said he would order it and it would be there the next day. I was shocked, asked why, and that's what he told me.

Dave,

That is the way he chose to send it and I also have been told that it is an ATF requirement for handguns.

Re: Interesting Handgun Auction

There is NO "ATF requirement" to ship handguns next day........that is a company policy, first established by UPS and later adopted by the other common carriers......it started because UPS was losing too many firearms due to employee theft!

The "atf overnight requirement" is a myth!
