What would you do?

Recommended Posts

Someone in another state, 1000 or more miles away, wants a particular cartridge.

 

Just one. They wanted to fill a hole in their cartridge collection.

 

You have the cartridge. Would you send it to them? If so, how?

 

Mailing it is Illegal. The only legal way is common carrier, with an ORM-D label. I figured that would probably cost about ten bucks. To give a cartridge to a guy in Texas.

 

So I just put the cartridge back in the container and put it back on the shelf. I feel for the guy, but I don't think it is worth the hassle.

 

What would you do?

I would wrap and pad the hell out of it, put it in a small flat rate box, and send it.

Make the round inert and then it can legally be mailed.

What's $10.00? If it was a fellow SASS shooter or a friend, I'd mail it to them legal like. If it was someone I didn't know or a non SASS person, I'd ask them for the cost of legal postage. Although the chances of getting caught improperly mailing it are slim, I wouldn't take any chances. To me, it's just not worth it. If they want it bad enough, they'll compensate you for postage.

If the person agrees, just pull the bullet, dump the powder, pop the primer then reseat the bullet and send it. If he/she still wants it in a live state then they're going to need to mail me Alex Hamilton's face first.

For a SASS Shooter, I would simply put it in my car, and drive the thousand miles immediately so that their collection could be filled at no charge.  Getting me to leave, however, is going to be expensive.

I would mail it to them. I would wrap it in bubble wrap, wrap the bubble wrap in packing tape, put it in a small box, tape the bejesus out of it and mail it. 
 

Yes, I know that’s illegal. It’s not like I illegally tampered with an election or bumped off somebody.

For those that would mail a live round via USPS have you considered that if you get caught you could go to jail and possibly loose your 2A rights?

Difficult to make one of these suckers inert.

First, do-not talk about it on an open forum. 

 

Second, wrap it, ship it, shut up about it.

 

Remember shipping USPS is illegal.

Any way to relay it via "Cowboy Express"?

What's with the lone red one? I haven't seen, or thought about, those in years.

It must have come from a different batch. All the brass ones have a head stamp that says "something F" (can't make it out).

I wondered too, but until you asked I didn't wonder enough to look. :P
