I have never had a problem when shipping from in state. Out of state, whomever is the shipper (usually UPS) wants an adult (over 21) signature. Most of the time I just say "leave on front porch if not at home". It works and I know, it is kind of risky. My neighborhood is a relatively calm place. A neighbor once held 2000 rounds of 5.56 for me without even knowing it. When I went to pick up my mail, he asked "Man, this package weighs a ton, what the hell is in here???" I just replied with, "I dunno, something my wife ordered".
