Over and out
USPS priority! Never a problem,
On a rare occasion Fed Ex, but usps is easier.
UPS never! Smashed boxes, shipments lost, takes a week sometimes..no thanks
Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe you can ship it to another state if you are sending it to yourself.
Correct a none ffl cannot ship via usps!
Cost me $15 or less to ship one.
Non ffl can ship but only thru fed ex and it's going to cost you $75!
I've used UPS before for handguns. Can you not ship through them any longer?
Federal Law (I believe) requires 2-day shipping or better. So it will cost your regardless of who you use.
I used Shipmygun.com which is a service of Bud's gun shop.
It was either $35 or $40. You do the transaction on line, they
send you a shipping label, you box it up and drop it off at a
UPS service center. Overnight delivery went smoothly.
Not a hand gun,just a long gun.
USPS can do it but the post master at the office has to be OK with it. Most won't
And I don't think UPS will deal with firearms any more.But FEDX you need to go to THEIR center as the local mailing shops won't do it either
Ours will but we are 2hrs away from any FEDX owned hub
UPS will ship, that is who shipmygun.com goes through.
You do have to deliver to one of their main offices though, the little mom and pop branches won't do it.
Easy to find one though.
UPS will only ship handguns via next day air, unless you're an FFL.
Correct, which is what shipmygun does.
Great system and cheaper than anything else I found.
And no I don't work for them, lol.
When I sold an AR over gunbroker I used USPS they just said it couldn't be ready to fire, I removed the firing pin and shipped packed in the same box.
I use the post office if it fits it ships box and you can ad insurance
I also use Fedex alot these folks are great if you have something comming and you miss them the first time they will attempt again the same day .
I never use UPS the blow they can't even follow simple instructions I have a remote door bell at my compound FENCE big grey box says door bell on it instructions on every package says ring bell on fence .
Plus if you have a package comming with ups it might show up at 9am or as late as 8pm
fedex and post office always before lunch or 12noon they rock UPS blows
When I had to ship my Glock back they stipulated FedEx or UPS ended up like $80 thru FedEx. The good of it was or is, I have the Glock I liked back (Gen 4 G-29)
I think if you package a gun yourself, at home, in a USPS box and declare it to be machined parts (Which is truthful) that you have no problem. Do NOT try to ship ammunition! HazMat! They will not see the humor in it, nor will you when they get done with you.
I sent a gun to Para via USPS
