I recently sold a rifle on here. Having agreed a deal etc, I took rifle to my local RFD to be transferred to the buyers RFD. (no need to name either RFD).
The rifle was picked up from my RFD on 28/11, then what followed can only be described as an absolute farce.
They 'allegedly' tried to deliver to receiving RFD on Friday, and again on Monday. Then on Tuesday they attempted delivery and left the rifle with a neighbouring business.
At no point had they left a 'calling card' and the receiving RFD was present on both days in his premises, it was only when I was contacted by the buyer and RFD to say the rifle still hadn't arrived that I called to trace the package, only to find it had been signed for by an unknown name, then alarm bells started to ring as no-one could account for the whereabouts of the rifle.
Having called Parcelforce with the tracking numbers etc and being told "we don't carry firearms" I asked to speak to someone who knew what they were doing.
I was informed that they had dropped it at a neighbouring business because they were busy, and the depot manager couldn't control what his drivers did.
When I asked them if they realised they had left firearms with someone not authorised to possess them, I think the penny finally dropped that someone had dropped a B*LL**K.
