|Had a seller (not AA) sent me 20 rds of .303 Enfield TRACER by US Mail. Will not buy from him again. While I did no wrong, I really don't need Postal Inspectors and BATFE Agents deciding I am in need of an audit. NO, it is NOT legal to mail live ammo in the US Mail- especially tracer!|

|(no avatar)||That was my understanding. I emailed the seller and advised him. Never gor a reply.|

|(no avatar)||Being paranoid seems to be what this is about. I have been mailing a box or two of ammo USPO for 15 years with zero problems. The postal inspector that was here for a inspection told me they could care less about a box of ammo mailed USPO. There has never been a single case of anyone being prosecuted for mailing a box of ammo. Check it out. Tks|

|Yone-Let's say we want to ship two boxes of handgun ammo.The cost of shipping it illegally via USPS Priority mail insured as opposed to shipping it legally via my UPS account(printing my own label)is just about the same cost,no difference.So why chance it at all,let that package of ammo break open in the post office in one of the anti gun areas and you will see them at your door.|

|Yone, old man, you are flat wrong! So you're telling me you've been a criminal for 15 years and since you haven't been caught, that makes it ok? Mailing ammo through the US Postal Service is illegal, can carry a felony rap (especially if you "conspire" to do so...can you say RICO, yep thought you could!) and you should not be encouraging others to engage in illegal activity.
Our Terms and Conditions are pretty specific in this regard...read this and heed.
Why you would risk facing a felony beef, the attendant court and legal costs and if convicted, loose your rights to own firearms all over some chump change is beyond me? Seems penny wise and pound foolish....and just plain stupid!

|Come on AA-bob, tell us what you REALLY feel!!!
You are correct, though, Bob, and Yone, you KNOW it, but you do seem to have a compunction to try to swim upstream, so to speak. Don't do it. Just because you have sent ammo by mail, or a handgun by UPS Ground, or whatever, and not get caught, does not make it legal. RICO will come camp out on your books for a while, and have you singing a different tune, maybe even from a GOVERNMENT zip code.

|(no avatar)||AA Bob--- I wasn't encouraging anyone to break the law--just stated a fact. You are probably right in what you say if you are going with the letter of the law. According to the Denver office of the Postal inspectors, They have never prosecuted anyone for mailing a box of ammo or less. I was thinking about the collectors that can mail one bullet in a 89 cent padded envelope. No harm meant, just my opinion. Thanks|

|Yone- if the local postmaster is part of the conspiracy,look at the bright side, you will have someone you know to play hearts with.LOL!!|

|(no avatar)||Hartwell-- The local postmaster could care less. He knows they do not care less about a little guy sending a bullet to Kansas. Get real-- The postal service has better things to do. Tks|
