Report: Ammunition Distributor Noticing a Lot of “Missing” Packages From UPS

Bearing Arms: UPS has been in the gun world news quite a bit as of late. My colleague Lee Williams over at the Gun Writer Substack, AmmoLand News, and the Second Amendment Foundation Investigative Journalism Project just recently covered that a large number of firearm related companies have been having their accounts canceled by UPS. Not only that, Lee noted that UPS is allegedly destroying packages that are in transit. Friend and Second Amendment luminary, Patrick Collins, from The Gun Food, reported to me that many packages he’s shipped out via UPS have been turning up missing.

Collins, who owns an ammunition distribution company, said to me in an interview the other day that out of 18,000 rounds of ammunition he’s shipped, about only 6,000 were actually delivered. I quickly noted that less than half the product Collins is trying to ship is not being delivered, he did correct me in saying “Less than half, exactly. Less than…almost a third.”

What’s UPS’s response to Collins challenging this phenomenon? They tried to put it back on him, as if he’s not properly packaging the shipments. They even reached out to Collins saying that he’s been putting in a lot of claims lately on packages not getting delivered.

“They’re not even making it. And I don’t know what they are doing in the facilities, if they are purposefully damaging them. However, they are not making it to the customer. Now for every batch that does ship, we actually ship everything insured. And usually, depending on the quantity or the value of the shipment, we’ll ship it with some type of signature required. So it’s funny when they try to say, ‘well, you know, you put in too many claims.’ And it’s like, ‘well, no, I didn’t put in too many claims. Well, our customer never received their package that we had shipped.’” – Patrick Collins

The instances that Williams brought up and what Collins has reported are not the first times that UPS has been in the hot seat over such shenanigans. In 2020, Tom reported that there were UPS drivers stealing guns from packages. As well as other events through the years. more here

  1. All gun and ammo shipments should have hidden tracking devices packed in them to see where they go.

  2. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight

    Sounds like (as with everything else conservative related) we gun-owners and conservatives need to band together and start OUR OWN bank, credit card, and shipping companies; separate and away from the main stream Libtard dregs.
    If anyone has any knowledge on how to start up and operate same, I’d be willing to be a “plank owner” (Navy term – look it up) with an initial investment.

  3. We could call it the First Bank of the Last Straw!

  4. It’s not only ups, USPS is doing its fair share too. Don’t ship anything thru Atlanta that’s valuable.

  5. Just recently I had some legal documents shipped Priority Mail. $25.67 for about 8 sheets of paper. One whole end of the envelope was delivered soaking wet and the documents were ruined. They put it in a plastic bag with an ‘apology’ and delivered it. I had to pay to have everything sent again. Idiots.

  6. J.Connors, how right you are!

    I ordered a Springfield XD from a little shop out of Troy, Alabama and somewhere between there and me (shipped via USPS) it was stolen.

    Tampering with the mail is a felony, firearm theft is a felony, combine the two and someone should be going to prison for a very long time!

    Who wants to bet nothing happens?

  7. It got bad enough for Glock they use 3rd party shipping companies to ship the guns.

  8. NOT ME > and the proper recipient of the gun/ammo should be allowed to send the tracker back, shipment prepaid and receive a discount on future purchases.

  9. The guns and ammo disappear and what arrives on your doorstep are ATF agents.
