    Now what's the best use of the pre-paid envelope?

    I'm thinking about loading it up with washers. < 16 oz is allowed by the USPS on 1st class PP right?

    :)

    Yes, but better would be the latest NRA solicitation info.

    Actual Brady folk are unlikely to see either; but it might be funny for the firm that opens mail for them.

    I'm a firm believer in getting the oppositions SNAIL MAIL. First off, I like to get the intel on how they intend to defeat us in the long term. That gives me a focus on a counter strategy. But I also find the fact that they're spending on postage a very satisfying experience. Bleed 'em. Bleed 'em DRY.

    Sorry to hijack the thread but this is something I've always wondered. Can you get into legal trouble by filling prepaid envelopes with stuff and sending it back? Was thinking of filling my credit card offers with coupon advertisements and sending it to them.

    Nope, as long as what you put in the envelope is legal to be mailed, and not something that might hurt osmeone who opens it (such as feces or razor blades or something- that's right out.)

    Just tape the envelope securely to a large brick. Or, a stack of ValPak coupons, or handbills for a porn store, or whatever your heart desires.

    As long as it is under 70 pounds, first class will cover it.

    Put one each of these in the envelope and mail it to them: 55 gr, 123 gr, and 150 gr FMJs. :D

    ETA: Oh, and enclose a nice little note about how the dreadful gun show loophole made you do it.

    An order form for CMP would be a nice touch, too.

    99.9% certain that their mail is handled by a contract

    mailer that has no other connection with the Brady organization. Therefore, regardless how satisfying it might be to stuff the envelope with something undesirable - rest assured Sara Brady will never see it. A contract mailer knows exactly what is supposed to be in that envelope and exactly how much it should weigh and business reply envelopes that do not fit those criteria are rejected and destroyed without ever being opened. If you wish to cost the organization that sent you the mailer the return postage fee ( which is about all you can reasonably expect ) then return the envelope with the proper piece of paper in it and something that is approximately the size of a personal check.

    Some suggestions given so far on how to cost the anti gun nuts the most in return postage appear to be incorrect while some are dangerous and illegal and could get the gunny in a lot of trouble.

    If we have a USPS expert who can verify that additional weight represents additional cost in return postage, please let us know.

    For now, you should follow coelacanth's advice and return the envelope with the paperwork they expect and a check sized piece of paper.

    Did anyone else get the email from them about their "thousands" of demonstrators... with pictures of a very sparse crowd in Washington?

    I sent the AARP crap back to Brady..

    Quite a few years back, somehow or another I ended up on the "Greenpeace" mailing list. A couple of nice "Hey, knock it off...not interested." replies in their pre-paid envelopes didn't do it.

    So, next time, I taped their pre-paid mailer to a cinder block, with this note..."Throw this at the next Tuna Boat you see...."

    End of mailings.

    I used to work for a company that processed mass mailings. The clients kept postage money on account at the PO to cover their incoming business reply envelopes and cards.

    Returns that had, shall we say, contents other than intended were common, for some clients more than others. All were paid for out of the client's money before the mail trucks delivered them to us.

    No action was ever taken against senders for the contents of the envelopes. The folks opening them did, however, keep a collection of the most . . . interesting . . . examples.

    Send them a clipping of a car wreck and tell them they need to work on a problem that kills twice as many. Oh, and smear pine tar all over it!
