Re: Question about shipping a rifle
I have been told by my local UPS store that "they" cannot ship firearms due to UPS policy.
The firearm must be taken to the UPS shipment center and handed over directly. Supposedly UPS told them that they want to handle all firearms shipments direct and inhouse w/o using their franchise stores.
I have never had an issue going USPS as long as I was shipping to and FFL dealer.
I also ship with a "delivery confirmation" and insured versus "registered" and insured. Delivery confirmation is .65 cents and registration is $8-10. Delivery confirmation gives you actual time of delivery logged into the system and can be tracked by a confirmation number on the receipt.
