Shipping Firearms

Does anyone know anything about shipping firearms, specifically handguns? I'm going to purchase a handgun off of a friend of mine in Georgia, and need to know if there are any special rules/laws to shipping them. Thanks.

I would suggest calling either UPS or U.S. Post Office, they could tell you for sure.

I don't think you can ship firearms, from one person to another. I think you will have to use a firearm dealer to ship legally, from one dealer to another.
If it was legal to ship person to person, what's to stop you from shipping a gun to the bad guy. So the reason for the firearm dealer.

It can be done just got one shipped to the Virgin Islands. I belive you need to use a person with a FFL if you are tranfering a gun between owners.

Ship it UPS, they ***** the least. If you can ship it to a dealer of other FFL holder. I believe you can ship person to person. Firearms can be shipped from person to manufacturer and from manufacturer to person.

hmm

UNLESS the ATF has changed the rules, you MUST use an FFL person to ship firearms even if you are shipping a gun to the manufacturer. If it is a fully automatic the FFL holder must have a classIII FFL If I were you I would be sure to do it the right way. It is a felony crime. Word UP.

That is correct. It must go from an FFL holder to an FFL holder.

* ANTIQUE FIREARMS (generally, any gun made prior to 1899) under federal law may be mailed or shipped to & from private individuals (non-FFL) by post office or common carrier.

* MODERN FIREARMS (generally, any gun after 189 are subject to numerous restrictions on mailing & shipping. While there are exceptions, generally private individuals (non-FFL) may ship modern firearms by common carrier to Federally licensed dealers or collectors (FFL’s).

* MAILING MODERN HANDGUNS – Mailing of handguns is permitted between FFL Dealers. The wording of this permission does NOT include FFL Collectors. FFL Dealers mailing guns to other FFL Dealers are required to fill out a special post office form on each such mailing.

* UPS & FED-EX POLICIES ON HANDGUNS – both of the largest common carriers have unilaterally adopted policies that require handguns to be shipped only by the expensive overnight ("next-day") method. Although I have heard some UPS officials have varied on the subject, the UPS officials I have spoken to say that they do NOT differentiate between antique & modern handguns in this requirement.
-----------------------------------

from personal experience: an individual may ship a long gun (rifle or shotgun) to another person, but it has to be shipped to an FFL holder to fill out the yellow sheet where the other individual picks it up.
only FFL holders may ship handguns, again the other individual picks it up and fills out the yellow sheet.
when i was in colorado springs, had a pistol stolen at a gun show in salt lake city. the salt lake city police recovered it, boxed it up, and dropped it in the mail. straight to the house and not an FFL dealer.
