The UPS STORE, there in Wasilla, the one in the Mall where Jo-ann Fabrics is, WON'T SHIP GUNS. UPS, in Anchorage, does, or so they say, but this UPS STORE, won't.
The only reason I went there was because the authorized gun repair people suggested UPS or Fed-Ex.
Also, the last time I shipped a gun at the US Post Office, (IN-STATE), even, I ran into some ignorance there. (I was sending a shoot-gun to a relative in the boosh. I sorta got the run-around, then I was told that I would need to send it to myself.)
I thought, OK, I'll try UPS, if that's what they like, but that was a no-go. (at the UPS Store)
I've shipped firearms, via USPO, before and Fed-Ex before, with no problems. This time I ended up, going to the Fed-Ex place, In Wasilla, at the tail end of Foundry Way, and they did it.
It just bugs me, no end, that I can run into such resistance or ignorance when I wanna ship a gun.
I dunno what Alaska is coming to.
The UPS Store, offered to ship the gun for me, via the USPO, Express Mail, but they wooda charged me more than the Post Office, and I was already mad.
These people make me feel like I'm up to something that's criminal just because I wanna ship a perfectly legal gun in a perfectly legal way.
