    When you are shipping a gun and your not going to get the case back I make what I need.

    I had a BT-99 that I sold and I took the forearm and rapped it in an old bed sheet with alot of padding. Did the same with the reciever and stock. Tapped it all to gether and then rolled cardboard around the gun with 3 layers. Cut cardboard for the ends and tape the hell out of the whole thing. It will look ugly but no one will want to steal it or think its worth stealing because they will not think its a gun.

    DO NOT UNDER PACK IT EVER. I use to work for UPS and they don't care how they treat the boxes. They will throw them they will crush them and they can read or don't read whats on them.
