Response to Shipping cost and used gun sales
Michael I ship a lot of guns and can give you a couple tips . Use boxes that are around 36 inch length. That will keep it from additional fees for being oversized .I use the USPS and almost all guns ship for under 35$ . If standard is same price as express( it often is)I use priority mail...Otherwise I use standard ground shipping .When guns are broken down there is almost no chance of breaking a stock . And I foam pack till its snug in the box . UPSprices can be VERY high , USPS prices are much more reasonable and insurance costs are also. I know there are guys who swear the USPS damages things . But I've never found it to be the case . I often just buy 100$ of extra insurance just so the carrier can see the insured tag. You can also write Fragile on the box without paying additional fees.
