Hi guys, I would like to get forum members thoughts on a subject from several years past in the forum where policies have changed since then regarding personal shipment of BP pistols and revolvers by shipping carriers. I’ve checked with my local USPS post office, UPS and Fedex and I’ve gotten mixed answers from every one as to the legality and their policy of a non-licensed individual shipping BP firearms to another person either interstate or out of state. My local postmaster told me under no circumstance can any firearm of any type be mailed unless you have a FFL even when I explained the BATFE law regarding antique firearms and their own postal regulations. She did exclaim some personal bias towards firearms by her demeanor, which may be the reason I was given that answer. Checking with my local UPS/Fedex franchised store, they said that they absolutely do not ship any type of firearm due to corporate policy even when I discussed the federal and state laws regarding antique and reproduction BP firearms. I was given advice that I could ship a BP firearm at either a UPS or Fedex hub location. Calling UPS on the phone I was told I had to have a C&R to ship BP firearms from their hubs. Called Fedex, the gal on the phone didn’t even understand what a BP firearm was and informed me I had to have a FFL. With these mixed answers from all these shipping carriers, I’ve conclude that either these people are personally biased towards firearms, don't know what their talking about or don’t even know their own organizational laws regarding the shipping of BP firearms. I could simply pay the fee to a local gun store and have them ship it but their fee is outrageous. Only alternatives that I can think of would be to brake down the BP firearm and ship it in pieces to an individual to re-assemble like parts sold on ebay. The problem I see is shipping a serialized frame which could get me in some legal trouble if the carrier discovered it. This brings up my question to the forum. What has been your experience as of late in shipping BP firearms that you have sold to a non-licensed individual? Please do not give me answers of simply disguising the package and shipping it USPS Priority, etc. as I do obey our stupid state and federal gun laws even though I despise those laws.
