Overnight shipping + insurance in the $2k-$3k range?  :thinking

Yep.. plus signature.

That's the kick in the pants, the insurance. Because I know I would never collect. I insured it for $3k.
But the reality is it's a $650 gun with $3600-$3800 worth of work done to it. By a guy who no longer does the work. So in fact it's irreplaceable. And if UPS ever paid off, I'd probably only get the $650 out of them.

Same reason I stopped insuring the revolver cylinders when I shipped them priority mail.  I knew I'd never get the money. Oh maybe I could eventually get them to pay for the cost of the physical cylinder. But they wouldn't cover the costs of the labor to have it fit or the hundreds of dollars in shipping it back and forth to the manufacturer. I just bough the insurance because that's what people wanted to see, wanted to hear. They felt reassured. But after like ten years I stopped and would just take the time to explain to the customers how many thousands of dollars I'd given away to the post office in insurance and never used, and probably couldn't. And if it got lost, I'd cover it out of pocket. (which I'd probably end up doing anyway)

Making new friends is probably the hardest part, but the upside is that you already have a hobby that breaks the ice. Sadly, I fear the politics will be following us, based on what's going on in Florida/Texas/Georgia right now with the elections.

Seeing as even my Nassau Republican options campaigned for a SAFE Act II, there is no hope for gun rights in NY after this, now that they control all 3 branches of state government. The funny part is, the Republicans voted for the SAFE Act in exchange for Cuomo not fighting hard to get the established power guys out of office. Fast forward to 5 years later, those Republican leadership people are either in jail, or no longer in office anyway. They literally gave up their party's ideals for nothing.

If you have any doubt how crazy things will get

Under the Constitution, the House of Representatives has the power to impeach a government official, in effect serving as prosecutor. The Senate has the sole power to conduct impeachment trials, essentially serving as jury and judge.

Yup, can still replace Ginsberg once she hits the petrified state. SCOTUS will be bullet proof for the next 30+ years.
