Minor Child receiving firearm

My XDS was shipped to my home last week. My 10 year old daughter was allowed to sign for and receive the gun. Does anybody know if any laws were broken by the carrier?

Mum's the word. You got your gun. Life is good.

Just let it go? What if the wrong kid got their hands on the gun?

OK, turn the guy in, get him fired. Possibly they'll want your gun for evidence, while the case goes on for who knows how long? Then you can be without your XDs which you've just gone 3 months or so without. Maybe a year, who knows? Be happy your kid's the right kind. In your case, nothing happened. Be thankful.

only got 100 rounds in before sending it back. Took a few months but included a 7rd magazine for the inconvenience. Now that I got it back can't wait to take it back to the range.

Did the driver know it was a firearm? Was the package exterior marked?

I ask because some carriers (Fedex and UPS, iirc) require that the exterior of packages containing firearms NOT be marked as such... but I honestly don't know if the computer the drivers carry explain that it's a firearm...

Just got mine back post recall. Before the recall I had a thousand rounds through it with no problems at all. Today I went to the range and shot 200 rounds I had 12 ftf due to light primer strikes. And 4 times when I would rack in a round the trigger wasn't reset and would do nothing so I had to rack that round out and chamber a new one. I also looked at some of the ejected casings and about 3/4 of them the primer strike was not in the center.

I'm pretty disappointed. Anyone else have this happen.

It has to be signed and received by an ADULT. Luckily nothing bad happened after she got it.
