Dave, I spent a lot of time giving some shipping advise to members, like insuring their packages and requiring Signature required for delivery, , I was making some changes to my post and the entire thing vanished, and I sure cannot find it, any possibility I can retrieve my draft?

I recently shipped a small single-shot without stock and the item fit inside my barrel shipping tube--3" OD PVC with one cap glued on and the other taped. About as sturdy a container as one can ship. UPS wanted an additional $20 because of "irregular shape" for a total of $54. I said "no thanks" and took it too USPS for 3 day priority. $30 and it got there in 3 days. I've probably used the same tube a half dozen times shipping barrels off to Mike Orlen for choke work. I tried scraping off the old labels and bar codes with mixed success and ended covering them up with gorilla tape. It had so many labels and scuff marks on it that it reminded me of an old Victorian steamer trunk covered with shipping labels and destination decals. Gil

They did so for a signature confirmation insured multi-thousand dollar package leaving it in my mailbox at the street and never stopped to ring the door bell. The mailbox door was left half open and the package hanging out to the street for two hours!!
The above doesn't happen where I live. If I'm not here to sign, a pre-printed pink slip is in the mailbox informing me of attempted delivery with instructions to appear at a named post office location after 830 am next morning to sign for and retrieve item. This has been the procedure as long as I can remember and happened again last week. Gil
