Personally I don't think they would be lenient on me the same way. I really don't see the debate here. Epps isn't alone and it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that they want you to follow the law. Just be a good lad now and bring a case and trigger lock.
    If you leave the store with a firearm, you're transporting it, so you have to follow the laws on transporting a firearm. But that's on you, not on the retailer.

    For shipping, the problem is that some retailer insist on locking the trigger and shipping into an expensive lockbox that you'll never need afterward. If retailers used 1$ trigger locks (they exist, sold in 10-pack) and locked the manufacturer-provided case (all my restricted have come into a case) with a 1$ padlock, (almost) nobody would be crying about it. But add 50-100$ in trigger locks and padlocks to a 350$ norinco and everyone sane will take their business elsewhere.

    Everytime I've shipped a gun by CP (either sold on EE or for warranty work), I had to transport it to the post office, so transport rules apply to me. Everytime they were trigger locked and in a locked box. Never has this cost me more than 3$, and when I sell on the EE I don't even mention it, I just end up with 3$ less in my pocket. If I asked anyone for the 50-100$ that some retailers ask for trigger lock and and lockbox, everyone would tell me to stuff it, rightly so imho.

    Just got a non restricted rifle in from a major chain store.
    There was a cheapo lock of sorts on the trigger with the "key" in the box with the gun.
    Was waiting with the electronic stylus in hand while the PO clerk processed the package containing the gun and she handed me the gun over the counter with no signature required???

    OK, so you're won't be a hero if you don't use zip ties and 'stick it to the man'.
    Every new gun I ever bought came with a cable lock , slap that on the gun and they sell the cheap luggage locks at the dollar store .

    Hmmmm I tend to believe the CFO

    Firearm has tracking number but STILL not shipped.
    First (trial) purchase here. Likely the last.
    Epps gets the Transfer notices through email. If epps has not received a email from the CFO saying the transfer is finished the only other way to check is by one of the counter staff calling the CFC to check. if it is on the weekend we cant call. during the week we can.

    I've got multiple guns that traditional trigger locks don't fit on in the original factory case. However all of those will fit in the case with one of the plastic trigger locks screw together type. My local gun store throws them in for free every time. For example any norinco pistol try and fit a regular trigger lock on it in the factory case, not going to happen.

    Only ever gotten zip ties. When I do, usually it's one for the firearm in lieu of a cable lock, and one around the case.

    A lot of stores receive their transfer notices through good ol' fashioned snail mail. They won't ship it until they get one even if you have received yours; for good reason too. Your best bet in such a situation is to call them and have them call the CFO themselves to verify. A worse bet is to necropost on an unrelated thread about your minor issue.

    I really don't get why folk are so quick to post online about an issue instead of picking up the phone (more than once). I get it. I absolutely hate talking to people too, especially over the phone, and I absolutely love to b!tch and moan about crap. But do you really think the whole mindset of "I feel I've been wronged so I'm going to announce it to the world instead of to the person who allegedly wronged me" is the most appropriate way to resolve an issue? I mean come on, we already get enough of this nonsense from the Left.

    Vendors rarely ever lock a thread unless it slags them; in the case of Epps well you all know their rep...
