Anyone ever get told this? I ordered 500 rounds of 9mm from natchez and it arrived yesterday while I was at work. Someone else brought it inside, and I was asked just recently "What was in that box? it weighed a ton!" And I'm thinking WTF ? It's ONLY 16-17 pounds.
Does anyone else chuckle at these kind of comments?

Last time I ordered from century the UPS lady didn't bat an eye as she asked me to sign for the 180 lbs she had to lug out of the truck
Maybe the UPS people don't hate me yet cause its always a different one...

Ya'll think they hate you now..........order 10,000 rounds of .223

The UPS guy really hates those cases on Yugo 8mm surplus.

just did an group buy for another fourm. UPS is going to love me - think total weight was close to 400lbs or so. Good news is it is being delivered to someone elses house to divy up.

Did a transfer for a TNW M2 .50BMG with tripod. UPS guy was wondering what the hell was in that wood box! Big ass wood crate weighted 190 pounds and the tripod was another 90 or so.

NOTE: this post is only half evil 333!

My last ammo order came in the fall. 5000 rounds of assorted 223,9mm and 308. The UPS guy brings the ammo to my door and says," you must do a lot of hunting." Yup, that's it I do a lot of hunting!

I'm usually asleep when the UPS guy delivers....so I haven't spoke to him in a loooong time. But the last ammo shipment I got (40 lbs of 7.62x39), my daughter left on the porch when she got home from school. When she woke me up, it was like "Daddy, there's a package on the porch..."

AAMOF, I got another box arriving tomorrow according to the email from SG today! WOOT!

You actually have THE TIME to go answer the door with a post-count like that?

Yeah. Picking up 1k of 223 I had a counter clerk ask me if I had a box of lead. I told her she was half right.

I've got a crate of 7.62x54R...another of 7.62x39, and a lot of .223 coming...UPS is gonna hate me......32 stairs to my front door.

i only have ordered 7.62x39 by the thousand, not too heavy, but its stil a large box. The UPS man has taken to hiding EVERYTHING under my doormat. Half the time the door mat is leaning up against the door to try and conceal the bulging brown box behind it......that's not obvious....

My warehouse guy whined about the SG shipment last week. (9mm and 5.56) 2 boxes but only a total weight of 65lb. This week he bitched about the crate of battlepacks from AIM (55lb). Tomorrow I expect him to bitch about the box of 7.5 Swiss , 5.56 and 22lr from AIM (51lb).

It's great working with other shooters . The owner of the company regularly comes by the office to see what new toys are available to fondle and has stated that an employee MG shoot at his ranch would be a cool deal.

Tell them fuck you, and if you don't like it, quit! Then draw down and make them pee pee in their brown shorts.

Shit, if all they want to do is whine about how hard their jobs are then they should become LEOs. At least they would be able to kill all of those dogs that try to bite them constantly.
