    Pistol shipping

    Post by hardtailjohn on Tue Feb 12, 2013 4:25 pm

    Kate just inherited her Dad's old .22 pistol, down in AZ and needs to get it shipped up here. What's the easiest way to do this? Does it need to go to someone with a FFL?
    USPS, UPS, FED Ex?
    Thanks!

    John, UPS or FedEx will ship it to the FFL holder of your choice. Remember to insure it. When you pick it up its the same paper work as if you purchased it from them. Check with a gun store near you and ask them what they charge for this. My gun store charges me $10 and anyone they don't know $25..

    Thanks! That's what I needed to know. I'll try to get it set up and sent.

    It is supposed to go through an FFL. But, I have shipped them a few times directly. Have them knock the gun down and ship part of it one day and part another day. There is no law against shipping gun parts. This advice was given to me by the Postmistress in the Post Office.
    But you really aren't supposed to ship the main frame or receiver because that's the part they regulate. AFAIK, nobody X-rays packages to see if there is a gun inside. I just talked to a friend this morning who has them come to his house UPS.
    If you have a friend with an FFL, no problem. Gunshops here charge $35 and the paperwork is the same as if you bought it from them.

    Thanks JB..and JD...haha That sounds like a good plan. I've also maybe got a inlaw on the way down in June to a wedding...they could just check it in on the airplane too.
    I like the idea of the parts, though....

    Only the frame has to be shipped to a FFL Holder. With the current admin. nutso anti gun feelings, I would rather pay $35 than worry about a knock on my door. Of course you could ship it to JD. He's off the grid, lol
