Shipping to FFL

Sydney333Sydney333 Member Posts: 3

Just sold my 1st firearm and getting ready to ship. Seems UPS "next day air' is my only option. Is this how the sellers on GB ship? I also read that UPS has recently tightened their shipping requirements on the shipment of firearms. Does anyone have any advice on this?

    The below is taken from the UPS website. And I don't see anywhere in the below where a private individual (who is NOT a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer or licensed collector) can ship a firearm. Any clarification appreciated.

    UPS accepts packages containing Firearm Products for shipment only as a contractual service and only from Shippers who are licensed importers, licensed manufacturers, licensed dealers, or licensed collectors (as defined in Title 18, Chapter 44 of the United States Code) to authorized recipients, as outlined in the approved UPS agreement for the transportation of Firearm Products.

    To transport packages containing Firearm Products, the Shipper must enter into an approved UPS agreement for the transportation of Firearm Products.

    The shipper must comply with and must ensure that each shipment containing Firearms or Firearm Parts complies with all federal, state and local laws applicable to the shipper, recipient, and package, including, without limitation, age restrictions. All Firearms and Firearm Parts shipments must also conform to the terms, conditions, restrictions, and prohibitions set forth on this page at the time of shipping, in the UPS Tariff/Terms and Conditions of Service and UPS Rate and Service Guide in effect at the time of shipping, and in the approved UPS Firearm Products agreement.

    They are many posts on this in the forums and might look those up here. A long gun can ship USPS legally as long as there are no restrictions and to an FFL. Handguns, take to your local FFL and have them do it for a charge. Long story short, make it lawful.

    Go to the main page & click on "Buy". Then "Find an FFL".

    Contact those in your area for one that will ship for you.
