    Then you buy some UPS uniforms on EBay. Now you’re ready to go around and do “pick ups” lol

    “Hey boss UPS is here to pick up those ARs we are sending back to Ruger.” - okay cool. “Wait... we don’t have any return shipments today.” - he’s gone, with the rifles.

    Really though, I can see why UPS doesn’t want brown package cars being sold to the public. Just like uniforms. I remember hearing about a fake UPS guy going into banks to grab Master bags, part of some identity theft ring.

    It's all about liability lawsuits and fighting them.

    It would make a perfect PVD!
    Of course, paint it maybe Lime Green to avoid any confusion?

    Witnessing and documenting dectruction is SOP . Somebody is going to get their ass handed to them in the end for this.

    My supervisor has been keen to get ADA cars disposed of without delay for fear of being forced to rehab them for peak.

    Yeah, we recently had a VT powered 1200 go down for a motor, we got rid of that thing super fast. This time of year I have seen them fix stuff that never should have been fixed, then you end up buried in road calls and writeups from the rehabbed truck that should be soda cans by now.

    Not sure, the sups handle all that stuff, they are also supposed to witness it get crushed and then sign off on it. Clearly that did not happen here.
