Those barrels came out very nicely. There looks to be two different kinds of twist - could those have been made by Parker Bros. too?

The broken PVC tube is unbelievable! Seems like they would almost have to try to get it to break in order to do that much damage. You are a lucky man.

Default UPS-- Uniformed *&^%$#headed Saboteurs--

I have shipped barrels to Buck Hamlin, and received them back after rechoking from him- I use Heavy Wall (think about schedule pipe- the thicker the wall the greater the crush resistance- PVC with the proper end caps PVC glued on both ends- double wrapped in bubble wrap and with crushed newspapers at each end of the barrel set- I don't mess with the UPS idiots, I use USPS Priority Mail Insured with the tracking code number- and I describe the item enclosed as "gauged steel machine tubing"-- I have done this, both with Buck and a few other folks who bought barrels from me, so far- 100%. Not cheap- the heavy wall PVC tubing and end caps, plus the weight factor, and insurance at way above replacement cost- try to find a set of 28" O frame barrels for a AHE 20 gauge- ain't easy-

For those who have purchased barrels, I offer a $15.00 rebate plus the cost of their sending me back the now empty tube with the caps-

Calvin- I'm no "William Pinkerton" BUT sure looks to me like vandalism, and I'd be filing a report against UPS- thank God the barrels weren't damaged, but someone at UPS needs to get the message- Loud and clear-

Yes Francis it would fell very good to meet that fellow and maybe teach him some respect for other peoples stuff. years back i orderd 5 hichory ram rods from dixie gunworks got an empty box from ups called the lady at dixie she said she would send me some more asked her if ups would pay for them she said they just eat the loss because its such a hassel to deal with the __________. It's just very sad how people are and what our great country is turning into because of em. Good thing there is parker fourm with some good ol boys to jaw with. ch

Calvin: Very pleased that the end result was not a catastrophe. Maybe they don't like gun stuff. I guess they handle "gazillions" of packages but my luck with them has not been great. Last order from Brownell's arrived like this. I did file a claim that was supposedly approved but to date haven't gotten any satisfaction. This goes back to July. I now ask for anything coming from USA to go through USPS. UPS charges a healthy brokerage fee that does not happen between the USPS and Canada Post.
