I mailed a package from Amarillo, TX to Houston, TX USPS Priority (which should take 2 days) and he didn't get it for 3 weeks. Plus the only scan that was on the delivery confirmation number was the "acceptence" scan where I mailed it.

Then recently, a guy mailed me a USPS MO on the 13th and I just got it yesterday and again the only scan was the "acceptence" scan where he mailed it.

No telling where they were at between getting mailed and delivery.

I didn't do bad on the last two packages sent, but before that I had this problem. I don't like having to fork over cash to not effectively track a package, but the number makes people feel slightly better; as it is proof that something went in the mail
How could you have a slogan like "freedom is slavery" when the concept of freedom has been abolished?

Just so you know, USPS/USPO Confirmation is NOT a tracking service, it is ONLY a confirmation of something sent and received. Post office does have available a tracking service on overnight/express mail though.

UPS/FedEx does have tracking on all packages though.
If you don't stand behind our troops, then how about you standing in front of them. Next time you see a vet or active duty USA Military person, just say thank you, they will know what it is for.

Sorry guys, but a thread enumerating the inefficiencies of UPS, the USPS, and FedEx would soon take over the entire TFL database. Let's use this forum for reports, good and bad, of firearm related companies and TFL members only.
