    Hi all, hopefully someone out there can help me!

    I recently joined one of Boise State University's Firearm competition teams, through the criminal justice club.

    Long story short, we provide our own weapons for the competition and mine is back home in Vancouver. I contacted some FFL's up here, and since I never switched my residency to Idaho, even if I go FFL(WA) to FFL(ID) they cannot release the gun to an out of state resident. Even a citizen who has a CHL from two different states, which are both valid in Idaho :(

    So I'm looking for ideas on how to get my Springfield up here without driving 15hours round trip or dropping $250 on an airplane ride. As far as I know sending it FedEx/UPS could get ugly real quick if they find out it's a gun in the package. Is that correct?

    But if anyone is going to be heading down to Boise from PDX and could possibly pick it up for me, I would arrange everything for one of my buddies to meet you somewhere and exchange the gun. It would need to be by Sept. 25th, and I would pay you $20 for your troubles....or if anyone is a college football fan we could talk tickets to the BSU vs. OSU game!

    PM me if you think we could work something out. Or post here if any other shipping ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    I might get flack for this.... but it's just an idea, and curious thought. I'm not a lawyer (etc.) and not sure if it's legal, someone will hopefully chime in if I'm in the wrong.

    How much does Fed-ex / UPS care if you ship gun parts ? Have a friend / family disassemble the gun and ship it in 2 parts (seperate boxes)?

    I would think it would be just as legal as puchasing an AR lower online and having it shipped, then having an upper shipped. (Just an example)

    Oh, that's not a bad idea. I'll see what I can find online about that. Thanks

    you can ship guns to yourself across state lines.

    How do you think so many people get their guns to front site. have a family member ship it to you c/o where you are staying.
