    Need to ship my gun stock(receiver and butt stock) via USPS for repair, any tips on packing or what type of material to use. What makes a good container to ship gun stock in.

    Bubble wrap ought to do it. Make it big enough for a snug fit in the box. Fill out with newspaper as necessary. Nothing should move or be near the outside of the box.

    you could do a smaller box inside a larger one if you want to be super careful

    A couple years ago, I talked to Tracy at Graco about sending a 682 stock to him for some work. He said when you pack the stock, put something between the two ears (my term) of the stock in addition to how you pack it. A piece of wood that fits, a rolled up wad of bubble pack, or a sponge ball you stole form your kid. Tracy had seen lots of damaged stocks because they weren't packaged well. So pack it well and then pack it again, or your next call might be to Gordon for a new piece of wood. hell that might not be such a bad idea,
    Regards, Barney
