Details on shipping a p-ball gun

I recently made a trade with some here on pbn. It was this morning in fact. I am wondering, how do I go about shipping the gun out for him? Do I need some special send thing? Do I have to go somewhere special? I need fast, copious input please.

The only issue with shipping a paintball gun has to do with pressurization. Nothing should be pressurized when you send it. Gun should not have any gas in it, and neither should any tanks that you might be sending with it. As long as it's an inert chunk of metal and plastic, you're good to go. The only thing you'd even have to think about would be state laws, and I don't know of any that would touch shipping an unpressurized paintball gun.

If they ask about whats inside the box because your insuring it for a lot, just say some weird technical terms and call it a marker. the employees will have no idea what your talking about, feel stupid, and drop the subject.

The post office workers at my post office are 60 year old mexicans. I would be surprised if they knew what a paintball was. I don't know about other areas though.

The people at the post office won't ask what it is. They're not allowed to

He's right, they legally cant. Now, if you TELL them that it is one and they don't let you ship it, well, thats your fault. They can't ask though.

Canada>US or US>Canada is where you run in to problems. 100% guaranteed customs will open the box and treat it WITHOUT care. I have gotten so much stuff that has been opened and manhandled I would never order a gun from the US for that reason alone.

if the postoffice askes tell them that your sending you **** to a medical center to see if you got a disease that has been known to be air born. Then look at the rep and cough a couple of times. That will catch them off guard.
