If I buy something off someone and they ship USPS priority with a tracking# and it shows recieved for shipping but no further updates for 4 days... I am assuming it is lost or stolen in the mail. Question: The seller has recieved my payment, he has shipped the goods, but I have nothing. I realize the USPS has f**cked up but who should eat it? Dont say the post office cause I dont think that will happen. This is more philosophical than anything, I just dont think it should be me, the buyer. What say you all, members of the jury? BP

Priority mail does not having a tracking number! Your only issued a number if the item was insured. You take that insurance code and if it was lost you file a claim. John

Be patient! All mail in and out of Florida is being hand checked for anthrax. I am still getting complaints about that CD deal.

Be patient, when you ship USPS Priority, it takes longer than 1st class. A few years back my wife sent a package USPS Priority and it took 7 full days to reach me in Dallas TX. Next time send 1st class, cheaper and quicker.

Thanks, its really not been too long with the weekend and all. The question was more philosophical than anything. I'm not very patient I guess...I want all, I want it now, and I want it for free! Cheers, BP

They do have a relatively new thing, believe it's called "delivery confirmation", has a (green & white ?) sticker with a tracking number on it. You take a stub with you & check it on the internet. No insurance included, that's separate like you say. It is not a receipt like you get with certified mail but you can use it to find out what the USPS says happened.

Actually, they have had deliver confirmation for quite some time. All delivery confirmation is, is they show you a date, Zip code and time it was delivered. You can track it but it's not going to give you any tracking info until it gets to its destination. And that's all you get. In other words its not scanned in and tracked like Express Mail or Global Express Guaranteed is....It's simply as it's said "Delivery Confirmation."

Mtnpatriot thats what I was getting too. It showed up today though. Weeee. I guess I could use a bit more patience. It only took 4 business days. Now I just need the pistol to put the mags in! I may have to pay retail. Thanks for all the advice. Cheers, BP

Larry Watson of Watson's Weapons once sent me a package via Priority Mail that took 17 days to reach me from the day of the postmark. It arrived in perfect condition and nobody will ever know what the hell it was doing for those two weeks it went AWOL. But what are you going to do? Ship stuff via UPS so somebody can steal it?
