Assraped by UPS policy

3.2lbs worth of handgun and accessories to be shipped to its out-of-state destination cost me over $63. According to Federal law, it doesn't matter how you ship a handgun out of state so long as it's headed to an FFL to be transfered. The rules for shipping are all on the carriers. USPS will ship handguns, but they require the shipper to have an FFL and the correct forms. UPS and FedEx will both ship handguns but they both require overnight shipping. This is borne of them not trusting their employees. Justified or not, UPS and FedEx policy have us over the damn barrel. When you can expect a shipping charge of over 50 dollars for each time it becomes very hard to legally ship handguns around the states by yourself. Seriously, harming the ability for regular citizens to dispose of their private property. Once upon a time, 2nd Day Air was good enough. And that was half the price of Next Day Air. I really miss those days. Where's my donut pillow?
