Was just informed of new usps rules for long guns. Rule #432.3 Rifles and Shotguns. Better head over to your post office and pick up a copy. No more priority mail. Must go Express (twice the money) or Registered Mail.
I need some help here, since I am thinning my herd. Would like to hear what others plan to do to keep shipping reasonable. Think about it. Who's gonna buy your $600 rifle and pay more than $100 for shipping to the lower 48? They will just buy something local even if it means a few more bucks.
I send mine out in a hard case with insurance and tracking. Shipping is usually around 60 bucks or so, plus the hard case. Shipping itself will be north of $100 with this new rule.
