Maybe I'm getting paranoid in my old age, but does anyone think that the USPS sniffs all the packages for gunpowder or explosives? I don't think ammo is permitted through the mail, I wonder what the penalties are?
I'm asking because I'm starting to collect ammo and I was going to ask if someone could toss a couple of rounds (or a whole box - I'd pay, of course) of Hornady V-Max 5.7x28mm in a box a just drop it in the mail. I don't think that round is sold locally (only 2 gunstores in the state with some of the strictest gun laws, go figure) and no one I contacted would ship a couple of boxes to me, even if I paid for the shipping. I'm just intrigued by that round, partly because of all the hype and partly because it's so damn hard to get.
I dunno, how dumb (or not) would it be for someone to drop a box of 5.7 into a Priority Flat Rate box and send it to me? I don't want to ask if that someone might get in trouble. Thanks.
