Thanks everyone for the compliments. I like getting a Colt from time to time although I am more a S&W guy.
You cant ship a pistol through the USPS.
Hertz - not exactly. Its legal to ship an antique handgun (pre 1899) through the USPS per their policy. Also, its legal for a 01 FFL to ship through the post office. Since that seller was a 01 FFL aka a gun dealer, they are allowed to ship through the post office. Anyone who is not a 01 FFL cannot use the post office for post 1898 handguns.
