I took a case of BH to the UPS hub this week. The guy behind the counter was very sincere and apologetic, but also very firm, and very certain he was right.
"I've been told a thousand times", he said, "you have to have an existing UPS account to ship live ammuntion. Has to be picked up. As far as the public goes, you can't just bring it in here and ship it."
So to be nice back to him, I pretended I had been told the night before by their hazmat office that I COULD ship it, and called the hazmat # from my cell phone, right in front of him, to "straighten them out".
Of course, hazmat said no problem if it's properly marked and under 66 pounds ... and my ammo got shipped. The guy remained sincere and apologetic, and I shook his hand.
Moral of the story is, always arm yourself with that hazmat # when you go to ship, and everything will be OK.800-554-9964
Oh, and enjoy the ability to do this while it lasts.
