I just ordered a bunch of single boxes of various kinds of .223 to see what my new upper likes to eat. Ups left a box with 300 rounds of ammo sitting in front of my door in plain view of a busy parking lot.

UPS SUCKS!!! I always use fedex when possible even if it's a little more expensive. UPS stands for... Usually Pretty Slow

I order stuff from Georgia Precision all the time and have it shipped UPS. The packages are clearly marked with small arms stickers per the law. UPS has always delivered them with no questions asked, but an adult signature is required (also by law). I am sure whatever happened is a rare, and innocent foul-up in delivery, and not some conspiracy or sinister act of Homeland Security.

The last order of ammo that I received was delivered by UPS. He asked me what it was, and when I told him and what it cost, he wanted to know where I bought it. More business for the Ammoman! [:D] Vulcan94

Like Anti-gov-tinfoil-man, I ordered a thousand rounds of 7.62x39 and was shocked to see it sitting on my highly visible front porch! I found a bulk dealer a now take the drive to buy my ammo. Its a little more but after shipping (usually $20 an order) its worth my piece of mind.

I've never had a problem with UPS, the driver always knocks on the door to deliver the package and if i'm not home he leaves the package covered up on the porch. When I get packages shipped from Fedex they don't knock on the door I always find the package on the porch infront of the door. I'm happy with UPS and will use them whenever possible.

Does anyone know whether UPS or FEDEX are aware of the contents of ammo deliveries??

It might be that you got a new driver or your regular driver is out on vacation (most likely the case) and the replacement is a lazy SOB. My regular driver is getting smarter - he always checks first if I'm home before wheeling the ammo off the truck.

Last time I shipped a rifle they had me rip it open because it was insured for over a grand. Should have seen the looks I got from everyone in the lobby. It was a Government Carbine. My packing job was a lot better than the one they did putting it back together. Never again if there is another way.

Absolutely! By law, the boxes are marked with a sticker that identifies it as containing small arms ordinance. They know. But, they don't care, believe me. They just have to ensure that their delivery trucks don't carry too much at one time.

Last time I had ammo shipped UPS, it ended up on my next-door-neighbor's front porch. "Hello, Mrs. Sixty Year Old Government Social Worker Lady. Yes, that's my thousand rounds of .223. Thanks for telling me it was on your porch. Yes, thank you, the .380 is mine too. Yes, I can carry it all. Yes, I really own guns. Yes, I'm going to use all this myself. Thank you. I'll be going now."

UPS just leaves all those ORM-D packages from Ammoman on my front porch. He doesn't even bother to ring the bell. Which is fine with me as I live out in the boonies, and can't even here the doorbell most of the time.
