    just dont sign for it if someone asks you too other than that you cant get in trouble from opening up mail that yoiu dont know who it is from (yeah right) so it works.

    Regular delivery is probably the safest, most of the time you don't have to sign for it unless the place you ordered from has some kind of tracking system placed on your order. Next day air is generally delivered by fed ex and you almost always have to sign for it. Where your order is coming from might make a difference too. I would feel safer having a domestic order overnighted compared to an order from overseas.

    Don't worry too much, the usps deals in an extremely large volume of mail and packages a day. The chances of something going wrong are very small, provided the place sending your order packed it properly and has it sealed, you know professional looking, not something that looks like a third grade art project. Your package could be ramdomly selected for inspection but I would think you'd have a better chance of winning the lotto.

    usps priority is safest. there is a record kept on both ends on express from shipping hub to receiving hub.. I havent had 1 issue with usps priority.

    im not positive they do random inspection. from what i have been told by employees it has to look suspicious and they must have a reason to open such as leaking fluid etc.. supposedly usps needs fed search warrant to open at random.

    yup, everyone is right USPS is safest. You can get a tracking number without having to sign for it. It only takes 3-4 days so I'd advise against overnight, although I've done overnight several times and it's worked out fine.

    I think that is true for mail "above" priority mail, (eg. Express mail), but not priority mail.

    Priority mail is still the safest though.

    Same here. I've done it a few times without any problems.

    Priority mail is killing me right now, today was day 5. My pack better come tomorrow...

    If you have a good source he/she should know how to best package and ship to you wherever you are. It shouldn't matter if it dom or int. My point is if your source has been in the game long enough its just something you shouldn't have to worry about
