Your supplier should pack it in a plain box like SG Ammo and Target Sports.
Look, don't you go bringing logic and rationale into a rant thread.
Because of the rampant damage that can occure with any of these shippers anywhere, I learned a long time ago that if I was selling an expensive rifle online, especially an easily dented wood stock rifle, I would only ship the rifle in a plastic gun case. (I then covered it with cardboard to hide that it's a guncase) It might cost the buyer an extra $20-$25 for the extra size and extra weight of the package, but you KNOW that the rifle will get there in one piece. A buyer normally doesn't mind the extra $25 if the rifle is $750 or more. I once had a $500 PCP air rifle shipped to me in a guncase that was badly cracked on one end, but the rifle was perfect. The rifle would have been TOAST if in a paper box. Keep your eyes open for used $10 plastic guncases at garage sales or gunshows. I'd spend $20 for it at Acadamy before I ship a $1,000 rifle in a flimsy cardboard box! The customer doesn't mind going half way for the cost of a new plastic guncase when you explain to them it's in their best interest (and they get to keep it). Have you ever had to file a claim? They often tell you it's YOUR FAULT.
Here's a Walmart guncase for $12.74 that can be ordered online from Walmart, and gets delivered to my local Walmart and held for pick-up there at no extra shipping charges. (Google "guncase" to find it.) It's well worth the peace-of-mind.
Couldn't agree more! Thanks!
And again, I'm "paying" for a service. I don't care.
I thought you were worried about someone snagging it, because it was obvious that it's ammo.
Of course the current trend is to refrain from carbs in any form. .
Good ol' UPS sent me the empty shredded remains of a box with a note that said the PO isn't responsible for items lost in shipping.
Oh no. A poorly packaged item damaged in transit. The carrier didn't do that. He did however deliver the package as he was supposed to. Then you can open it see if there is damage and send it back if necessary. Automation damages packages. I have had damaged packages from all the big carriers.
You make too much sense for some people.
Years ago I worked at USPS at many different levels. I seen packages get tossed around all the time. The only time they didn't was if it said something like "To Grandma From Billy" or "Happy Birthday Grandma". Many times if it said fragile it was an opportunity for some to take out their frustrations of life on someone's package.
I’m still waiting on a bag of food I ordered from Chewy November 2018
The only two ammo companies I deal with online. I'm not sure there even any other ammo companies!! Oh wait, Bonefrog wasn't bad until they started with the "LE-only" crap for certain ammo.
Interesting. Around here if there is a card that looks like it is from Grandma it is sometimes torn open by someone looking for cash.
In some third world countries your mail has about a 50% chance of arriving. We take reliable mail delivery for granted for now anyway.
That's the truth. Most all the petty thieves at USPS do this.
never had issues with usps at all. fed ex , and ups are a different story . twice , both have left my packages up the road at 622 while my address is 662 . dyslexia is a hell of a problem apparently.
