My son out in Calif. shipped his rifle to me so it will be here for good whenever he comes back to hunt,plus he wants me to bed it and get him some good reloads figured out. Get this they charged him $139. I didn't know the Demo's were in office yet.
Somebody made a big mistake I think,no I know they did,I've never paid over $20 to ship a rifle. I guess it would take an act of congree to get a refund. Man I'm hot.

That sucks man!I never ship firearms or anything of that nature throught the post office.I always use UPS.It kinda ticked me off a couple months ago when i found out that you can't ship live ammunition through the mail,ever since i won't mail anything gun related through them.Use UPS!!!

I'm still burning up about this,I talked to our guys here at the post office,they said the most it could have been was $48. The box was 54"x13" x5" and weight was 12lbs with $600 bucks worth of insurance. I want this persons job.

last one I shipped through USPS fully insured was just a touch over $20.

Gotta love California when it comes to guns. They've either got crazy surcharges there or the guy behind the desk made a major mistake.

Well here's an update. My son went and talked to the main supervisor or postmaster (whatever their title is) at the main big office out there,with his reciept in hand. The guy blew a gasket after he checked into it from what my boy says. He got a 100 refund and a promise that this will not be the end of it for the lady that tried to rip him off.
Yipee.one for our side.
