Yeah, you must have missed the thread where I posted how UPS seized (rumors say destroyed a few too) thousands of firearms in transit and canceled hundreds of shipping contracts with manufacturers and dealers after they enacted newer, more strict, and extremely cost prohibitive shipping policies for firearms, parts, ammunition, receivers, suppressors, and even replicas.OK. I bought a box of 50.
HOLY MOTHER OF MERCY! UPS shipping estimate was $12 so I clicked OK. Actual shipping charges that UPS slammed on me is $21.25!!!! If I would have know that, I would have chosen the USPS, for $11 shipping.
I called up the phone number and was connected with Paul, the owner, who took my call despite being at lunch. He says this is is a new thing that UPS has started doing a few days ago and he can't control it and has no good way of changing my shipping to USPS or even canceling my order and refunding me. He promised to try do do something to "help" me out such as putting in some free product or something, but good night, my box of $28 dollar bullets turned into $50 in a blink of an eye. So, heads up, next time you order from them, use USPS not UPS.
If I were Paul, I would find it upsetting that I have so little control over my e-commerce options and I'd be looking for a different product/vendor.
Yet another reason why I really prefer buying local.
Go frag yourself UPS!
Peace favor your sword,
