|I ship every day,there is no USPS rate increase i am aware of.They would have to triple the current rate to justify a $45 shipping charge.If he ships USPS then he is grossly over charging on the shipping.It will catch up with him,most buyers are aware what it cost to ship a item.I guess he is just hoping a sucker comes along.|

|(no avatar)||You can ship handguns through the USPS only dealer to dealer. (01 to 01 FFL) $45 dollars is not unreasonable since shipment to an 03 requires the use of a common carrier such as UPS or FEDEX, both require shipments to go overnight.|

|(no avatar)||After a vist to the local P.O. , the postmaster informed me that a modern handgun can go (dealer to dealer) for 8.95. Sure a longway from 45$.|

|44mag, the seller in question perhaps is not a dealer, and therfore can't use USPS. Only FFL 01 Dealers can mail handguns via USPS. All others have to use UPS/FEDEX/DHL whose rules require overnight air, and hence the cost. Of course, it could simply be a guy trying to make extra money, or simply someone who does not know of the availability of USPS to dealers.|

|(no avatar)||Ever hear of insurance? Required by AA at USPS it gets expensive. We do not ship without it.Dealer to Dealer flat rate insured,delivery confirmation and signature is for most 18 bucks and that does not count time to deliver to the PO.
C&R license is not a dealers license and by law must ship common carrier NOT USPS. 8 bucks for a handgun ups or FedEx? Where have you been under sedation or a rock? They require next day air and it ain't for no 8 Bucks.
Keep showing your ignorance dig yourself deeper and make yourself look more ridicules.

|(no avatar)||This poor horse has been ridden hard and long. If you see the shipping fees requested by the seller, and they are 'exorbitant' JUST DON'T BID. Please quit crying about the rates. Some cases they are justified, other times they might be adding in their time and labor. Either way, if too high PASS ON IT. I don't care what someone wants to charge for shipping. I just include it in what my max bid was going to be, if too high I lost on an item. PLEASE let this topic die a peaceful death.|

|(no avatar)||44mag & everyone else check out ups.com/rates. Shipping charges will go up considerably on 12-31-07. I didn't see any glowing promises that their customer/delivery service will improve!|
