i shipped a rifle today through ups and i called them tonight to get a location of the package..

this morning i shipped a rifle to florida because i just sold it. dropped it off at a staples ups center and shipped it ground with insurance and signature verification. i called them asked them where it was ran threw the hoops and i am trying to find out where my package is. woman is suppose to call me back. i told her if i didnt get the package back by tommorow i was going to call the atf and report the incident that happend. i think that if you cannot drop a packaged firearm off at a ups center they should say so before they ship it for you.

right now im really angry that this shit happend

Ohhhh I get it, you shipped a rifle through UPS. I thought you shipped a rifle and then you threw UPS somehow.

Should have called it firearms parts.


Oh and "threw" =

"through" =

I've had to ship firearms a couple times, and it is a nerve wracking activity, as you're so worried someone is going to rip it off, or you've done something illegal in spite of your best efforts to be on the up and up.

My advice is to stay cool about it for a day or so, it will probably turn out fine. Anything you do to draw attention to the package can't help.

they are in the process of returning it to me... so i can ship it "OVERNIGHT" ala there website says that but there employees dont

From the title I though maybe the UPS guy took your gun out to the range and gave him bad results.

Well he spelled the word correctly, he just used the wrong word. So that would be a Grammer nazi.
Link Posted: 8/22/2005 3:55:31 PM EDT
what exactly are you getting worked up about???

just put the rifle in a box and ship it ground to an FFL. UPS regulations don't matter, what matters is FEDERAL regulations. As long as the person receiving it is an FFL dealer your fine.

Yeah, his title should read "I tried to ship a rifle through UPS, I thought they were going to give it to me dry".

That's assuming he just used the wrong word. Maybe he just didn't know how to spell through.

If its damaged in transit and he didnt follow their regulations to the letter (ie: declaring it, shipping it from the UPS hub, etc), he wont be reimbursed for the insured amount.

It's a rifle just go mail it.



Finally, someone who knows how to do this right.

Here's a hint: 99% of FedEx, UPS, and USPS employees don't know shit from shinola about shipping firearms. Be ready to show them in their own regs (which you can get on line) how to do it.

You do know that the US Post Office will ship rifles for you? You are shipping to an FFL?

I have shipped a couple of rifles through the Post Office before, without a hitch.

They will ask what you are shipping. Just do yourself a favor and check with the ATF, as I did, and let the clerk at the PO know that you did so.

Next time use US Priority Mail!!

IMHO, the cheapest and legal way >

Nonlicensees should use the following with Insurance:
Long guns = USPS Parcel Post
Handguns = UPS Next Day Air Saver or FedEx Standard Overnight

Licensees should use the following with Insurance:
Long guns = UPS Ground with Signature Confirmation
Handguns = USPS Priority Mail

Link Posted: 8/22/2005 7:04:50 PM EDT




I'm a little confused about the events here.

So you dropped a package off to be shipped by GROUND at a UPS location THIS MORNING, and you're frantically calling them trying to "locate" your package THIS EVENING.

Why ?



And then when they cannot tell you IMMEDIATELY where it is (for whatever mysterious reason you apparently need to know), you get all pissy with them and threaten to call the ATF ??

Why ?

My head hurts from reading this thread.

Calm down, and type so that other people will know what you are talking about.

Now let me see if I got this straight. You shipped a rifle this morning. For some reason you now want it back. They are working on it. You are freaking out, and threatening to have everyone and their grandmother arrested. Am I correct so far?

ETA: Dang, either the dutch type fast, or I type slow.....Cause I think he is having the same problem as I am having understanding this thread.

Why did you call them?


Had they contacted you about the package being returned, and you were just calling them back?





they then freaked out saying it was staying at the hub and was being shipped back to staples i was like wtf over.



Why did they freak out?

What STARTED this? Them freaking out, or you calling them the same day you shipped it, demanding to know where it was, and starting to threaten them as soon as they couldn't tell you immediately?

Seriously - I'm just trying to understand what you're saying.



they then told me to come pick it up i went and they did not give.



So you went to the staples location, and they HAD the package there but refused to return it to you?

Why? What reason did they give?


so i called around and then finnaly got somebody worth talking to they then contacted the MAIN man and he said ill be there at 8 with his rifle bam. i was on fritz end after i left the ups hub i went to the raleigh pd. they said with all your paperwork and reciept of sale, if they refuse to give it to you then we will get it for you. not that i wanted it back. but i wanted to get it to its destination. i promised ranger i would have it to him this week and im holding up my end as he did his. there you go

So you called them the SAME DAY you shipped it GROUND to find out where it was?? Where do you think it was?? Timbuktu?

If you ship it ground, it's going to be at the local hub later that same day. I don't mean to flame you, but I honestly have no clue why someone would do such a thing??



I'm still curious about why they "freaked out" when you were on the phone with them?
