    I'm interested in buying a rifle from a WA state resident, and I'm in WA. We're just too far from each other to make a face-to-face transaction practical. Can he ship to me? I'd be fine with sending a copy of my CPL to prove I'm legal to receive a firearm.

    ATF Online - Firearms - Frequently Asked Questions - Unlicensed Persons

    In this context, licensed means a FFL holder.

    I am neither a lawyer nor an ATF agent, and will not therefore offer legal opinions or advice. Why would you take any sort of legal advice from a "random internet guy"?

    The relevant statutes are cited, you should be able to make your own determination.

    NuthinFancy,he can only sue you for as much as he paid for your advice which equals $0,so you can answer
    YES rifle or shotgun by mail
    No to handgun by mail
    Yes to any gun in your own state to your own state by common carrier or contract carrier

    No to any marking that there is a gun inside

    10 4?
