    HMM? well I am not sure but all our lady postal workers I am pretty sure were Lady Wrestlers before they got a job with USPS?
    they seem to like to zero in on the address as well, , not at all unusual to see them drive up and down the street 3-4 times stopping at random mail boxes they passed up the first trip through?
    hmmm?? guess that you need to be able to read and count to properly sort mail before the trip out?
    must NOT have an app for that one yet?

Kinda funny 'cause the powders I get from Western come by FedEx while USPS get all the heavy lifting from bullet deliveries. Fedex powder deliveries from Western require an adult signature, so in the past it's sometimes taken the 3 attempts they allow for delivery. Luckily, the current Fedex guy knows what's in those boxes marked with the flammable warnings.
    Here they drop it off at the door at least they are suppose to!
    my projectile order in seriousness normally runs about 50-60 pounds (4-5 K of varied calibers.)
    they leave it at the front door.
    Fed -X always require a Adult signature for haz mat here, UPS may or may not?
    I actually had UPS leave a Beretta handgun that was shipped back to me after repair on the front porch with no signature although it was required, now honestly I was not real pleased with that, way to many things could have gone bad, fortunately nothing did.

    Last I remember, UPS also requires a signature on Haz-Mat. My most recent FedEx powder delivery, I knew the expected day. Still didn't want to miss it because I didn't gear a knock and them not finding the doorbell. Saw the truck cruise by my office window and headed for the door. The Fedex driver is a smaller hispanic guy that I would bet is a shooter. Upon our first meeting I explained that the powders are shipped for my writing projects and we introduced ourselves. The next delivery I made a point of calling him by his Christian name. This latest delivery when I made a dash for the front door after seeing the truck go by, he was like, not to worry, he had it covered and would have left the powder on the front porch that is somewhat protected from sight by a shrub. I won't be as concerned next time.
