Does UPS ground really charge $5,000 to ship a gun?

I can never understand why poeple just don't cancel the auctions...

Thats a crappy way to try and scam someone $5,000 for that marker, BIN at $0.01 might fool someone.

Uhm, I'm involved in the Machine trades, and one of my buddies recently bought a semi full of Mills and lathes from North Carolina and had them shipped to New Jersey.

Total Cost? $2 grand.

Yup, I've looked into shipping prices on that sort of equipment, and is surprisingly cheap. (considering they are FREAKING heavy)

Also, a dirtbike shipped to my door was something like... $125 for the shipping in a crate, IIRC...
