Postal Inspectors are all armed & then some, they do a lot more than most know about & have quite a bit of power.

As Samhill said, postal inspectors are armed. My company does a few inspections at several sorting facilities and there are armed postal inspectors in the facility. So, the USPS soliciting sales for munitions is not out of the ordinary.

Trying to get as much business as they can I guess. There is a lot of ammo shipping right now. Funny licensed CCW holders cannot carry in PO.
Funny story. I had to run for stamps a few weeks ago. I pulled up on the road and parked. Pulled my pistol and set it under the seat after unloading and before getting out. When I returned to the car I grabbed my pistol while standing outside the car. Racked a round back in the chamber while pointed at the ground and re-holstered. I looked up while entering the vehicle and there was some lady standing there at the next vehicle looked like this :shock: . I smiled said hi and nice day, got in my car a drove away. :)

If she was a gun toter she would have known there was no threat and not worried about another gun owner. :) I was down at the Great American outdoor show on Tuesday. Not sure when the last time was I have felt so safe. :D Lots of gun toters.

Ironically, the Post Office will have to have their ammo shipped to them by UPS as they dont allow ammo to be shipped USPS. Firearms other than pistols yes, ammo no.

Perhaps this will help explain some of the USPS problems. Some will stand to make more dividends as long as the USPS struggles, but surely that couldn't have anything to do with what's good for the country.
