Last year my own local post office refused to ship a rifle for me in-state..Told me it was "not allowed"!...I told them it isn't so...The lady called two other local post offices and they didn't know, so the lady refused to ship it for me....So I ended up driving 20 miles to ship the rifle through a private shipping store which cost me a fortune..As soon as I got home, the post office called me back and told me that they found that they were, indeed, allowed to ship long guns, and to bring mine back....Too late, I went somewhere else...Sad when a postmaster doesn't know his own rules..I though you had to pass a test to get that job!erinreed said:Kyle, Send away, use the Cross Roads post office, it is the only one around that will not give you crap. perfectly legal as long as you stay in pa.

This is probably the best response to this question I have ever read.Joe the Logger said:Perfectly legal. We have rehashed it here several times.
I posted the Federal Postal code section previously. Its worth educating all again so here goes.
If you are refused at a US Post office, ask for the supervisor. Politely let them know you are not leaving until you speak to one, in person or on the phone.
Reference section 11 of the USPC. You can even pull it up on a smartphone for them if they say they can't.
We all know education is critical to gun rights.
The US Postal system is polluted with Anti's, and even a little authority often goes to peoples heads. Let them know you know better, prove it if you need to, in a nice manner.
