The United States Postal Service (USPS; also known as the Post Office, U.S. Mail, or Postal Service) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for providing postal service in the United States, including its insular areas and associated states. It is one of the few government agencies explicitly authorized by the United States Constitution. The USPS, as of 2021, has 516,636 career employees and 136,531 non-career employees.The USPS traces its roots to 1775 during the Second Continental Congress, when Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general; he also served a similar position for the colonies of the Kingdom of Great Britain. The Post Office Department was created in 1792 with the passage of the Postal Service Act. It was elevated to a cabinet-level department in 1872, and was transformed by the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 into the United States Postal Service as an independent agency. Since the early 1980s, many direct tax subsidies to the USPS (with the exception of subsidies for costs associated with disabled and overseas voters) have been reduced or eliminated.The USPS has a monopoly on "letter" delivery within the United States and operates under a universal service obligation (USO), both of which are defined across a broad set of legal mandates, which obligate it to provide uniform price and quality across the entirety of its service area. The Post Office has exclusive access to letter boxes marked "U.S. Mail" and personal letterboxes in the United States, but has to compete against private package delivery services, such as United Parcel Service, FedEx, and Amazon.
I order $240 worth of heavy reloading components and a substitute USPS driver delivered it to the wrong complex. I am assuming sender sent it in flat rate box but shipping was free on my end. They said they will check the lock box of the other complex to see if package is still there. If it is...
Upper and lower handguards and grip for the AK. The handguards are reputedly Russian, but I'm not 100% sure on that. They could be Bulgarian. The grip I do not know. It could be Chinese, Hungarian, or other.. I did not refinish or touch these in any way. I assume the shellac finish is original...

USPS Regs Here
What legal sites tell you is incorrect. They state you MUST use Priority Mail Express. Nope.
I will say, walking up to the clerks...
I'll preface this by saying the only reason why I am entertaining the idea of dealing with USPS is that shipping handguns via priority mail is going to be much more cost effective than UPS/FedEx's overnight air. Priority is two-three days and will cost between $6 to $15, while most UPS...
I ordered a FO sight from Dawson precision that was shipped on the 1st. It sat in the PO "Waiting Acceptance" until the 9th before it was sent to OR. It looks like they tried to run it thru the roller mail sorter which is fine for regular envelopes but a huge no-no for the padded ones. As far as...

I do a fair amount of buying, selling and trading, I generally use USPS for shipping for the most part since our UPS office here in our small town only takes parcels after 4 p.m. Its just a pain in the butt to get there during that time.
It sure seems to me that lately the USPS has definitely...
