Hey guys,



I just ordered an M&P via an online sale site, and I'm having it shipped to a FFL via the US Postal Service. I was given a tracking code, but the code only tells me when the package is delivered.



Any idea on how long handguns normally take to be delivered (it's going from Florida to Maine)?

Hmm, well USPS was notified of the package on the 13th (Tuesday). Hopefully it comes tomorrow. If it doesn't come by monday, I'll start to get a little concerned.

2-3 day's and they do deliver on saturday's, I have had several shipped usps, and it depends on how far away it was shipped from, but I have never had it take more than 3 day's.

unfortunately with USPS shipping from one FFL to another you may ship parcel post insured, which means they can take as long as they want. I had one take, no joke, 2 weeks from FL to PA. Apparently since it was insured for a large amount (custom 1911) they wanted to make sure is was locked up well each night in a safe :roll:



the good news is if you got a tracking number it means it went priority mail and it should take 2-3 days but remember with USPS it is not a guaranteed 2-3 days.

Same thing when I used to ship cylinder heads... would have insurance up to $20k, and it would be a week to two weeks before the shipment arrived at the house.

Ok, it came in, making it 4-days via USPS.



Hopefully I'll be able to give a range report tomorrow.
