    I got 3 in the mail in the last year or so...2 are restricted...They came in a styrofoam cutout in a cardboard box...that's it...a combo came shipped together to a business address in town that I use after I asked that the pistol be shipped to my PO box as that is the address on my RPAL...Got em just the same...A couple dealers are offering hard cases and a lock to follow the letter etc...I guess that's fine as long as I can keep getting them...

    Here's a good question considering the shipper is the only one that can claim insurance. When Canada Post looses the firearm, who is on the hook for it? Buyer or seller?

    I've always thought the shipper should reimburse the buyer and therefore insurance is up to the seller.

    Just looking for clarification on what's actually correct. When I ship anything at work and it gets lost, we always ship another zero charge.

    I was thinking about taking a gun on a plan. Up until I saw that Westjet wants to charge an extra $100 handling fee on top of the baggage fee.

    At the end of the day after all the extra paper work and hassle, it is cheaper and easier to just ship it.

    I recently sent a handgun away for warranty work and folded the authorization notice so that only the shipping address was visible. I’ll be damned if the post mistress didn’t open the entire for to read the info that was none of her business. Is that not a breach of their code of conduct or something? She got all butt hurt and started making a bunch of phone calls to see that if she should ship it. I had to tell her it was in a bunch of pieces and was technically no longer a firearm. Then she proceeded to ask of my other packages were firearms as well.
