Preferable mailing method

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

Preferable mailing method

Post by Loaded » Fri Dec 28, 2012 9:44 am

I'm a first-timer & going to be mailing out the form 4s next week. What mailing option is best? I don't want any screw-ups as I've had enough of them already.
Thanks in advance, fellas!

I for one always pay the extra at the US Post Office to send any letter
to any bureaucracy accompanied with a signature return receipt.

Call my procedure redundant. Just experience gleaned from having worked in the world's largest
bureaucracy. :)

And given the way items get lost, misplaced, shredded, etc.

How about next day air with tracking? Or is there a better way?

Priority mail with cashed check as proof of delivery works for me. First class is fine too.

USPS with delivery confirmation and signature receipt.

Overnight or 2 day mailing a application that will take 6+ months to approve seems a little silly to me. Save the money for ammo.

if it's a single form, i send it USPS First Class and if the check is cashed within a few weeks, i know it got there. if it's a bunch of forms, i just put it in a USPS Flat Rate envelope.

I just wrote free in the corner and gave it to the mail guys. Went pending a few days ago, so I guess it worked.
