    They have to get from point A to point B somehow. It's either UPS or Fed Ex. I don't think it's legal to ship guns through USPS.
    Sounds to me like someone at a shipping outlet somewhere switched labels by accident. How many times have we seen that happen. I know I have a couple dozen times.

    yeah, that's how terrorists get guns, by rolling the dice on a random package to get ahold of a single rifle

    not like they would use bombs or anything that actually killed lots of people....

    if there was already a label on it, and a label got placed over it, that's an obvious clerk move

    and it's perfectly legal to ship rifles and shotguns through USPS, Fedex, and UPS, but only Fedex and UPS can ship handguns, unless FFL's, military, or cops

    I wonder if the driver honked his horn when before making his delivery.

    I stand corrected,but I still think you have to be FFL,cop or military to receive rifles through USPS.They must have changed that. I was by an ATF table at a local gun show and overheard some guy ask about shipping a gun to his son and the ATF guy said you have to use a private carrier you can't legally do it through USPS. That was a few years ago.

    for the price, it is completely outperformed by many, many other handguns

    polymer + striker > steel + hammer

    the ATF agent was wrong, or lied

    they're notorious for both

    Actually I think he was right. The guy wanted to ship a gun straight to his son, that I think is illegal through USPS so their site says, it has to go to a FFL dealer or cop,military. But with UPS or Fed Ex you can ship any gun person to person right? Not a gun bought from a licensed dealer to a person without going through a FFL dealer.

    like i said, he was wrong or he lied

    there is no difference between USPS and UPS/Fedex, except when it comes to handguns
