    Don't ship UPS - I have had enough trouble with these fucks for this year. Ask anyone you're purchasing a firearm from to ship FedEx or USPS.

    I recently had a customer lose 1000 rounds of ammo to UPS theft - driver replaced ammo with another package, resealed box and left it on his doorstep.

    This evening I was forced to report 4 stolen AR lowers to both ATF and the seller / shipper. A hole was kicked in the side of a large shipment of receivers and the handler helped himself to a few brand new Aero lowers.

    If you come across the following serial numbers, they are to be considered STOLEN firearms:

    Mfg: Aero Precision
    Model: X15
    Type: Receiver
    Serial Numbers:
    - AR89503
    - AR89504
    - AR89506
    - AR89507

    I have had numerous failures from most American carriers and the USPS.
    There are 300 Million people in the country.
    It's obvious the companies don't care one whit about what you send.

    A lot of items get stolen from peoples front porch because UPS leaves things right in front of the door. Usually that area can be seen from the street as someone drives by. I have only had a package stolen once, that was enough for me. For shipping instructions, I now always ask them to leave it behind the bushes.

    For shipping instructions, I now always ask them to leave it at the easily-accessible-but-not-visible-from-the-street back door.

    Those instructions have never been followed.
