    Return addresses

    Shipped my Walther PPS back to Smith & Wesson for warranty repair. They sent me a prepaid label. I just got it back. In the return address, the name of the company was always "SAW". When FedEx called me to inform me that they had a package for me, and I asked who it was from, they just said SAW. Apparently, for the uniformed, it hides their identity a little...maybe prevents "untoward" attention.

    SAW? Would probably save your package from undue scrutiny and theft. Everyone knows what S&W is.

    A lot of companies abbreviate their name on shipping labels. I think its more laziness in typing or trying to save space on the label than anything else, but it probably aids in hiding what might be in the package.

    So if Sig Sauer was bought out by Smith & Wesson would the package read "Sig Saw"?

    No, it would read "SAW Sig." If, on the other hand, S&W bought out Sig, you would indeed be correct.

    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I have returned handguns to Ruger and Colt for service.

    Both were sent back via FedEx with return addresses of:

    SR INC
    Newport, NH

    C.M.C.
    West Hartford, CT

    Had to sign for each and asked the driver if he knew what they were ... reply was No.

    Why advertise to the crooks at UPS or Fedex what you're shipping. It's good to keep things on the "down-low" sometimes.
