Thanks, postalvet! That clears it up . . . /m1686 . . . The registered Express Mail (old symbol) had to include the USPS with it. So, as egark said, Express UPS and Express FedEx is o.k.

Leaving, I know it is not knew - product renaming - but I was just surprised to see Express on other delivery products. I wondered if someone blew it at the p.o. and lost any " ownership" with that term. But, I learned on here anyone can use the word Express with their company name attached.

/m1683 -- Cali to Colo -- Sorry, it'snot really a new thing. The product renaming goes back to the USPS Notice of Minor Classification Change of 24 APRIL 2013. Express Mail became Priority Express Mail and Express Mail International became Priority Mail Express International. Mailers were allowed to use the former names and packaging until January 2014. PRC Docket No. MC2013-45.

I remember standard mail that faked being important by calling itself Express Priority Mail, or some such. even had an eagle on it; not the USPS eagle, but close enough to trick unsuspecting rubes

In print, somewhere I saw UPS has the registered trademark symbol by their express product (UPS Express), while the USPS has the "tm" after Priority Mail Express". I understand the USPS tm, but the UPS Express with the registered trademark symbol surprised me - but yeah, egark, (you are correct), everyone apparently can use the word "express" somewhere in their product. Thank you for responding.

Cali to Colo /m1683 - the post office claimed that Priority Mail is their best known product and they wanted to attach Express Mail to that. They never had the name "Express", that is too generic to copyright, it was "Express Mail." Anybody can use the word "express".

Does anyone know why Express Mail is now Priority Mail Express . . . has UPS always used the term Express?
I wonder if someone from the USPS blew it and failed to on-going secure the name/term Express (since I see UPS uses it).

/m1680 No, you've got it wrong. If anything, I might show up to compare "mine to his", and see which one will group tighter at 25 feet. That is, only with assurances that none of you will SHOOT me, for my political views. I do admit: I'm only a Decent shot these days. I used to be much better, but that was 30 years ago. Age and lack of recent practice has taken its toll.

Boss, I had no idea my Marine corps training only consisted of being yelled at by a drill instructor. I guess I was only dreaming when I received survival training, jungle training, weapons training, physical training, etc.etc.etc.

Carry on, A freedom loving, reponsible gun owner like yourself, bought your 5th handgun last week? Be careful, that might prompt a visit from boss basher, wondering why you have the need for soooo many weapons. Are you about to blow something up? Do you watch fox news? Are you a conservative?

/m1677 Please stop being so condescending yourself. I'd go up against you in any type of Quiz, trivia and history about firearms any day of the week. You know nothing about me, except your fevered imagination, based on a Fox News-inspired contempt for Liberals. Your presumptiousness reveals your lofty ignorance. And quit being a damn Blowhard about your Marine service. That cheapens the honor for others. Knowledge and background in life can come from some OTHER places, than being yelled at by a Drill Sergeant. But you would never know that....and it's obvious.

/m1677: Bless you. I bought my 5th handgun last August. A Glock 9/19 compact. (Not the subcompact....did not like the (my big hand) requirement of a pinky extender on each clip).

I was very surprised by the very light recoil, allowing a very quick reacquiring of the target.

A word to the wise: In the summer, don't mess with the guy wearing the floppy stupid-looking Hawaiian shirt. It's one of few options while concealed carrying.

/m1676 Please stop making an ass of yourself. As a United States Marine, I don't have to pretend I know more than you, I know I do. I'm not going to sit here and brag about what I know, and all the great training I received from the greatest fighting force America has ever known. That would be a very unfair fight to have, with someone who has never served in the military. I know one thing for sure. I would trust the law abiding citizen to protect himself/herself and their families with a firearm, alot more than a condescending liberal who thinks he knows best on what to restrict and why. Thank God for the NRA, and the great members of the United States military, who fight everyday to give you the freedom to express your thoughts, no matter how ludicrous they sometimes are.
