    My best friend bought my AR, so I shipped it to him through the post office, the box was a brand new target box we had just gotten, i packed it and secured everything and put a copy of my FFL of the guy I was shipping it from in the box, taped shut and mailed.. i get a call saying the FFL wasnt in the box.. it had to be i packed the box.. till he sent me pics of the box :eek3: It had apparently been ripped open, taped and then run over a few times for good measure, Rifle luckily just had a couple scratches on it and FFL was replaced.

    It was sarcasm (mostly :hsugh:).

    The second that box saw an x-ray machine, it's contents were no longer a mystery.

    Yes, I shipped it with a cert from my FFL (didnt really need it, my friends FFL requested it) to his FFL, so it was legal
