Probably because it's a Royal PITA. I jus shipped a Mauser Sniper rifle that had been "Sporterized" with a Monte Carlo stock. The buyer actually just wanted the rifle, but the nice stock was a plus he could sell or use. I drove the 45 miles to the UPS after calling first and then waited while "The Manager" was found. I had both license's, everything totally legal, still you would have thought I was shipping a Pit Viper. I paid extra for bubble wrap and the rifle was already in a padded case, but guess what? It arrived broken at the stock wrist and it was not bubble wrapped. I'm still waiting for the claim adjuster to call. I had it insured, of course. Luckily the buyer is a nice, understanding Gentleman.
