    Buy a cheap plastic hard case, then try your LGS for shipping boxes - from their inbound shipments they usually have more than they know what to do with.

    USPS has generally worked best for me. I've only had to educate a newbie USPS worker a time or two.

    The problem with UPS Stores, Mail Centers ect is that they are privately owned and not owned by UPS. Our local UPS Store is honest about the problem....they can't get insurance that will cover firearms and ammunition and therefore will not ship them..........our local Mail Center says the same thing. It's not that they don't want to.....

    There is all kinds of anti 2A fuckery going on that most don't even realize...............

    When asked the contents of a box by UPS, I usually tell them electrical components, tools or mechanical parts depending on the weight and size of the sealed box.

    The only gun I've shipped was a warranty repair to Springfield Armory last spring. SA sent me a FedEx shipping label. I placed the pistol in a plastic gun case and then it packed in a box with the RMA, sealed it and placed the shipping label over the box flaps to prevent it being opened.
