Not sure they'll approve of the types of marks it makes, though it's not like they can say paintball markers don't cause injury either.

 

/me goes off to find out why they're called markers in paintball.

You will find that sending parcels via the Post Office is actually much dearer than going to a ParcelForce Depot and presenting them at their counter. The last RIF I sent was quoted at nearly £30 at the PO counter but only £15 when I went to the ParcelForce Depot for the same package.

Sorry I was reading about I can't ship the battery with the gun is that correct?

 

It's only the cheap one that comes with the gun.

Thank you.

If I recall, most if not all postage carriers will not accept batteries as defined under their prohibited items list, either charged or fully discharged.

This is incorrect, there is a specific list of battery types which are excluded from non commerical, and international/national carriage.
