Hi all

I am trying to organise a courier to pick up a MAC 10 i have organised to buy. but phoned up DHL this morning for a quote. When they asked what it was i was delivering, you can imagine they were taken by suprise when i said "an ingram Mac 10". Obviously further description didnt help, its only a replica, yes it is heavy because its full metal, yeh it does look very much like a real gun.

Ultimately, they f***** me off and said there was no way they would deliver it for me!

Whats the best way to get around this? Should i just lie and say its a heavy book? Plus, what if they scan it in an xray machine? Isit worth putting a note inside with UKASB details, saying all is above board?

Anyone had previous experience? let me know, as i am ###### keen to get it!

DHL are like that, just go to your local post office and do 1st class recorded delivery, i believe they allow for RIF's to be posted unlike DHL.
