FedEx lost a customer rifle...**Rifle found!** Login/Join

I posted "The Black Mamba" in the rifle section. This was a kickass rifle. I shipped it weeks ago and the owner contacted me this weekend to tell me the rifle was lost. Sure enough, tracking shows last movement on March 18th.

Rifle was insured, but still, now I have to go through the stolen/lost firearms process, which is a first for me.

Ugh...

Tony.

Thanks. The customer just contacted me and they said the "found it" in a railcar on the east coat. I'll breathe a little easier when it's safely delivered to him. Tracking info hasn't been updated yet.

They ship firearms by rail? Customer guns, no less? Guess that's "especial handling" Frown

The customer doesn't believe them. They find it but can't say where it is now? Not cool at all.

A lot of FedEx/UPS traffic going cross-country ships via TOFC (trailer on flat car) out of areas such as Atlanta, Chicago, LA, and the PNW.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Often by rail, yes. Chicago and Detroit are notorious for gangs breaking into stopped or slow moving trains with guns on them, usually with inside info.

Very good to hear. I bet you feel a load off your mind. When I ship a pistol O/N, even when it somehow gets stuck at their hub for longer than usual, that's enough to give me heartburn.
