    I doubt any UPS hub has the ability to deny firearm shipments. Are you dealing with a "UPS Store" or equivalent? If so, they are simply a middleman.

    You need to go above the counter persons head then, and speak with a manager or corporate. They will take your gun, I promise.

    At times you will get a person who will inforce their own rules on you. The co will do what you want but the person behind the counter just doesn't like guns, fishing or what ever. I have and agree that you look them in the eye and ask for the manager. Be nice but don't take no for an answer.

    A pharmacy with UPS service in my small City denied my shipping a long gun, but the office shop across the street did it and welcomed more!

    I deal less and less with the snooty old bags at the Pharmacy!

    The UPS franchise stores will not accept a firearm for shipment. I have shipped and received firearms numerous times at UPS depots.

    RE: pharmacy with UPS service

    •Your packages that contain firearms will not be accepted for shipment at UPS Drop Boxes, with UPS SonicAir® service, at locations of The UPS Store or any third-party retailer, or with international services.
