I use USPS for everything. Faster than UPS.

I have shipped long guns in Texas with USPS. No preference, just easier to ship USPS in Wall TX.

USPS will not take my guns if they know it's a firearm. Or at least they wouldn't the last couple times I tried probably 5-6 years ago. Neither would fedex, but UPS would if you knew which one to go to.

I've never had an issue with USPS accepting rifles.

I ship my firearms to outfitters all the time.... I use FEDEX 3 day ground. I have never had an issue. As long as you are not selling the firearm I do not think you have an issue either. Also, consider that you need to ship a firearm to a manufacturer for a recall and they use carriers.
