when some nosy motherfucker at the PO asks what I'm shipping in a zip tied guncase, I always answer "R/C Helicopter"

seriously, even if I WAS shipping an RC copter and not assault rifles i'd use a guncase, waaay more secure than some cardboard box.

in 7 years of buying and selling I've never had a package break open. Just pack the fucking thing well, you pay or get paid hundreds of dollars per gun, no reason to cheap out on packaging.
LOL remember when you shipped me my Kraken? REMEMBER HOW YOU PACKED IT????

I would say it was a toy aswell if asked. I had a gun come to me in the mail and the barrel was sticking out the end of the box and they just said heres your package. I said thank you and took it.

Well, it was only a pistol. The guy never even asked what it was, so no big deal. Thanks for the advice!

I wouldn't ship anything via UPS if they were the last shipper on earth. Bunch of scammers.

You don't have to declare anything, it is not considered "danger goods", just pack it well so it does not become unwrapped or get damaged in transit.

?!?!? Since when? I ship both airsoft and real firearms. We are explicitly told not to 'declare' or put anything on the package to indicate its a firearm so that it does not become a target for theft, and to use signature so it isn't left on a doorstep. Other than that, I've never been counselled by anyone at CP on a policy like that, and I do a LOT of shipping.
