    Absolutely-I have had to pay UPS ridiculous fees in the past-now if I buy something from the US it is USPS or no sale

    I know. My post was a joke. Maybe y'all have to pay extra in Canada for humor, too.

    My post was a little attempt at humor, no need to get all serious. Bless your heart.

    I have ordered a number of items from the US and when they are sent by UPS I always get charged extra fees. When they are sent via US Postal server and marked as sporting gear, I never get charged any brokerage fees.

    Lots of potty mouth language doesn't fix the dutys or taxes. I find folks use language like that to make themselves feel like they have something REALLY important to say but there really isn't much substance.

    You can say something important without the attitude

    I have nothing against customs dutys I chose where to live and therefore have to abide by the laws and customs of the land I live in. (Im a British immigrant to good old Canuk country) Its UPS that jump on this opportunity to make a buck out of us.

    read the first post, no attitude, legitimate question.. i dont try to become a comedian on a legitimate thread/question, other people have.

    I had to pay a high % on the last UPS, and i want to make sure I don't have to pay something crazy like 160$ when it get here, or else i could cancel my blackbirds order right now..

    you real hammock addict should understand that.. well, those who are not rich and have to count their money at least.

    Thats what happen when I read usless post about something i am actually really concern. And Beas, you should understand that... its important to me and compromis my new addiction (hammocks) of course it is not much substance.. to you!

    Last several packages I received from Warbonnet Outdoors all arrived USPS, so I'm fairly sure Brandon will be able to accommodate not using UPS.
    That means nobody has to offend anybody because the UPS factor no longer applies.
