Just wanted to share a recent experience I have with shipping guns. I recently bought an Impact barrel, probe and magazine from a member on here. He shipped it via USPS Priority. The tracking showed that it left his State however afterwards it stopped. I messaged him after a week telling him that I think it is lost since Priority mail only takes about 3 days max. He was very professional and suggested that I give him a couple of more days. After almost 2 weeks, he refunded the money back into my Paypal. In the mean while, I had an Air cylinder that was leaking and needed to send to Ernest for repair. Seeing how shipping could get lost, I decided to put a $1000 insurance on it to make sure I can get my money back in case if happens. Well, after almost 3 days with the tracking number not showing any movement, I got worried. On the fourth day, the tracking showed it arrived. 

So the bottom line is, if you are going to ship a gun. Make sure you have proper paperwork in case you have to file a claim (its not as easy as you think). I looked it up thinking I lost my air cylinder.  Take lots of picture and document. Buy proper insurance and tracking number to be safe.
