    I've shipped a dozen small arms out via FedEx overnight. I always tell them it's a firearm, but there's nothing marked on the box. No problems so far, other than the outrageous price for shipping overnight express and the PINA of having to go to the hub.

    How bout this one

    I tell them it is a handgun, and they and they ship it non overnight. They lose it ...run it over with the truck...whatever. They violated their own corporate policy. Are obligated to pay the claim?

    UPS rules say that it is at the "sole discretion" of the office as to how they are going to send it. FedEx specifies overnight. I would imagine that if you paid for overnight and they didn't send it that way, you would have a claim for the charges.. As for them "losing" it and then you making a claim becaused you didn't insure it, I don't think you would get very far.

    I've shipped many firearms to various mfgs and gunsmiths for repair and the like
    in all honesty I ALWAYS tell them its a firearm and insure for full value you'd be a fool not to,that said I have never had any problems with UPS in fact they know me by sight now and know that most likely I am sending a pistol/handgun to have work done on it. That and the fact I have a VERY cute sheltie that goes for the ride helps too

    Not clear in my post

    What I meant was
    I tell them it is a handgun
    They ship it standard
    It is insured
    They damage/lose it

    Actually, what you are paying for is the guaranteed delivery by 1030 the next morning. Most UPS Next Day Air packages never see an airplane. Now, if it doesn't make that 1030 delivery time, you are entitled to a refund.

    As for the other topic of insurance and declaring firearms, Father Knows Best is right. Just because you don't sign anything doesn't mean you aren't entering into a contract.

    In that case, the answer is simple... they pay for it.
    What was the point of your question?
    Are you asking if you could sue them for punative damages or something?
