How to Ship Firearms and Ammunition
When shipping firearms, always make sure you have a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and that the FFL’s address is included on the packing slip. It is also wise to put a copy of the buyer’s government ID in the box. This is especially important if the gun is sold to an unlicensed individual. Listed below are the guidelines for shipping firearms and ammunition. These are only guidelines and do not apply to every type of shipment.
You should always use a licensed FFL for shipping firearms. A non-FFL can send your package to an unlicensed person, but the package may not be opened by the person holding it. When using a FedEx drop-off location, make sure to call ahead of time and ask if the location has a gun shipping department. You can generally expect a safer and more secure environment at a FedEx hub.
Before preparing to ship your firearms, make sure you have all the required paperwork. For instance, an FFL can ship a firearm for a fee. Be sure to include a copy of your driver’s license with the package. A local FFL can also ship your firearms for a fee, allowing you to transfer it to a new FFL. When shipping your firearms, it’s important to remember to remove any markings on the package that might indicate that it is a firearm. If you do not have this, your package may become a victim of theft.
Before mailing your firearms, make sure your address is correct. Be sure to run the FFL number through the free eZ Check system to make sure it is accurate. Before mailing your firearms, you should contact the destination to verify that the items are ready for shipment. You should also confirm that the FFL is in business and can ship your firearms. It’s a good idea to call the FFL’s address before sending your gun.
Before sending firearms, make sure you have the proper government identification. Unless you’re a licensed FFL, you must ship your firearms through a Federal Firearms Licensee. The shipping company must be able to process your shipment and make sure it is delivered safely. If you’re shipping a firearm to a non-FFL, contact the location’s FFL and see if they are familiar with the laws for shipping guns.
Before shipping your firearms, make sure the destination is ready to receive them. If you are shipping to a FFL, ensure that the FFL’s address is correct. Before you ship your firearms, make sure to check the FFL’s FFL number. If you don’t have an existing FFL, you can call the FFL to make sure that the firearm is ready for shipping. If you’re not, you should call the destination to make sure that they’re able to accept the shipment.
