As I said, it is not so much the overpriced shipping as much as the arrogance and immediate nasty responses from these individuals when you ask them nicely why it cannot be shipped via U.S. Mail. This occurred prior to and after they had all the evidence from the ATF and Post Office which states that they can. You are right Rick, the seller should have offered something in return for listing the shipping options wrong. Or, the dealer could just follow the laws as written and ship it USPS. It would have been the end of the discussion. I just do not want to see other forum members having this kind of trouble if they deal with this seller and dealer.Sal, it sounds like the FFL is only involved as the shipper. They can make rules for their business that is, in their opinion, in the best interests of their business. The seller for the estate may not have known the rules and simply clicked on the 2-3 day option. I noticed the seller has virtually no experience selling on GB. If you can't live without the 1877 (I could), it seems a good compromise would be to split the shipping with the seller though the animosity may have passed that option.
