No but seriously, anything that gets mailed via air is heavily screened by x-ray and other means. They'd probably find something pretty easily and then either send the package back to you or dispose of it.

Lithium batteries are notorious for catching fire if they're damaged in any way. It's not about terrorism, there was probably an incident recently where this happenend and USPS is deciding to cut their loses.

Knowing the extreme amount of Li-Ion batteries in use these days, I don't see how they can enforce this.

Probably damaged one of the Li-Ion batteries while they were throwing the packages around and cramming them as tight as possible in trucks.

Despite the low cost of using USPS priority flat rate to ship internationally, I really want to know what percentage of all international shipping is through USPS? I understand there are a lot of people in military bases, U.S. territories, Hawaii, and Alaska who have to use international shipping but when shipping to everywhere else, what percentage of people use USPS over another company?

Stupid USPS. They should put more effort into NOT losing and/or damaging goods, THEN they should move on to things like this.

Agreed, i have stopped using USPS due to their horrible customer service. They need to spend more time training their employees on how to properly do their jobs correctly. they are basically turning away services while possibly going through bankruptcy?? wow...

EDIT: Let it be noted that I understand that this entire site is not only Americans and that many people do live out side the States or in US Territories that this will indeed effect. I just don't think its a big problem. Minor inconvenience, yes. Otherwise, not too significant. Just definitely nice to know about up front!
This means you cant ship luxes, creeds, and demons international.

I Personally use USPS for 99% of the deals I do. It's easier and closer for me than ups or FedEx. I print the label slap it on a flat rate box and drop it off. The ups store near me doesn't sign those forms for insurance and the next closest one is 30 min away compared to the 5 sec the post office is and there isn't a FedEx around for miles. This sucks not only for people who sell paintball markers but for any electronic device.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
