  • Shipping Firearms

    Can you ship firearms person to person within the state of FL or does it have to be received by an FFL?

    Re: Shipping Firearms

    no ffl needed. as far as shipping rifles can go usps. hand guns have to go fedex or ups

    good luck with ups and fedex ,it depends on the person you deal with everyone has thier own set of regs.

          Re: Shipping Firearms

          I have explained this on several other "laws" on several other topics, but here it goes.

          Laws are not descriptive. Laws are restrictive. You rarely find a law explaining what you can do, or how to do something. Laws tell you what you can not do. Therefore, if there is a law prohibiting me from mailing a firearm to another individual within my home state then I cannot, if there is not a law prohibiting it then it is legal. The BATF guidlelines do not prohibit individuals from transfering ownership from one person to another. How you get the firearm from one individual to the other is your choice.
          Hope this helps, if not, oh well.

              OK, what if you ship say the magazine and slide assembly in one package and the grip in another. You're no longer shipping a firearm are you? Your shipping parts. Couldn't you then avoid a FFL ?

                Onetuza, its not required to use an FFL to ship one from Florida resident to Florida resident. No need to break it up. Now if you are shipping to out of state buyer it has to go through FFL, because you cannot sell to out of state without going through FFL in their state of residence. And its the reciever with the serial number that falls into that category. You can sell every part and ship it anywhere, except the reciever.
                Hope this helps, if not, oh well.

                  Is legal to ship to a person inFL. Not a bad idea to get a copy of their DL first. I usually ship Fed-Ex, but the last 2 were damaged with them.

                    i'd get a copy of their DL for sure. They have to be a resident and I know that it's not fool proofif the have a DL, but it would make me feel better. Even better if they have a CWL!

                      Re: Shipping Firearms

                      I would love to see the face of a anti-gun FEDEX or UPS clerk when u walk in there to ship a gun... specially if it's a big *** .44 magnum or 6 inch .357..

                      I even hear that sometimes they damage the guns on purpose, like ROGMATT said on this same post, or worse yet, they "get lost..."

                      and if they agree to ship them, they probably charge u double, because of "insurance" purposes... It's NOT looking good, boys...

                          you know it's against federal law not to tell them look it up

                          gun owners are getting a bad enough rap without you telling them how to break the law!!

                          and too top it off you admitted to it

                          really smart on open board were all can see

                          atf would love to meet you

                            Clamper, I'll let you look it up for me. When I mail something or ship something, they ask "is it fragile or hazardous?" and I answer no. I do a lot of e-bay stuff and I have never told anyone what I am shipping. I figure its no one's business what's in the package. I have never been asked to disclose the exact contents of my package.

                            I just ship.

                            IANAL, nor do I play on on TV.

                              as a gun owner you should know the law! stop telling people to look it up your the one who need to look it up.and you should do it before you commit another felony..

                              check out atf on shipping ups on shipping and fedex

                              as a responsable gun owner know the law! you should for your own freedom!!!
