Re: Your comment on individuals can't ship handguns via UPS, FedEx, etc.
This isn't true IF you ship from a UPS, FedEx depot. You can't ship from a UPS Store or other 3rd party pickup places.
I recently shipped my 1911 back to S&W via FedEx with no problem whatsoever.
What I stated above is according to Fed law and the carrier's own tariffs. HOWEVER, I've heard of other people getting a lot of grief when trying to ship guns from USPS (long guns) or the common carriers. It depends on whether the person you get has a clue what the law or the regs say or if "they make it up as they go".
Sorry, I did misread what you posted.
BTW, DHL says NO firearms (long or short) and no gun parts. This is in their tariffs.
I wouldn't ship a gun via USPS anyway. They don't pay claims and jerk you around for at least 6 months if they do decide to pay. You can't put a trace on a package for 30 days. If you pay for return receipt and they don't return the receipt, they say "tough" and it is policy that they do NOT refund you for "services not performed". BTDT
Hey SOT,SOT_II";p="54904 said:One small problem with this:
Long guns, not really a problem...ship UPS ground and you can ship to a dealer in another state. In some states you can ship directly to another person (intrastate), some states require extra paperwork intrastate (like MA's FA-10) so it's not really an option.
Again Firearm being a handgun in MA and long guns being just that.
