    Re: Shipping Laws

    Remember that this is a guideline only. Not a comprehensive rules collection. There may be other regulations or parts of that also are at the BATF web site.A lot of the periodicals that are monthly or annual also have shipping info from time to time. Requesting info from them and the state attorney general can keep your chestnuts out of the fire.

    Re: Shipping Laws

    I do want to point out, it is not a law that you must ship a firearm overnight. It is only company policy of the carriers. If you are shipping 'machined parts' or other such items, then you don't have to pay for overnight shipping.

    But if something happens, it could be more difficult to get the insurance claim. I think I heard of this happening but have no idea who/when/where.

    Re: Shipping Laws

    Interesting point ..

    If the gun wasn't working and/or disassembled, would it still be considered a gun. I mean .. machined parts is kinda vague.

    Re: Shipping Laws

    Somwhere along the line UPS,FEDX, and the Post Office all decided that because of being truthful other designations cannot or will not be used.Guns or gun has to show up on the ticket or designation. Some said the law prevented this or insurance claims couldn't be cleared up because of this.

    No more machine parts, projectile dispenser, or other inventive descriptions can be, or are supposed to be allowed.

    I am pretty sure that if you ship a gun, even detailed stripped, and don't tell the carrier it is a pistol you would be in some pretty hot water with the federal government if the carrier found out there was a gun in the box. In fact, if I wanted to sell you a pistol frame and ship it to you, I would have to ship it to a licensed dealer if you didn't have your own FFL. Imagine what would happen if that frame was shipped and wasn't described as a pistol frame, and I got caught, all because I wanted to circumvent the law requiring that the frame must go through the hands of someone with an FFL?

    Having just dealt with shipping my PT1911 to get it refinished, I asked the UPS clerk what Federal law required me to ship my gun next day. His answer was very honest. He told me there was no specific law, but that the company policy to ship overnight was enforced primarily for insurance reasons. Using my situation as an example, if my gun was stolen by an employee, or lost then stolen, and used in a crime, not only could I sue the company for more than the covered insurance dollars, but the victims of the crime could sue the company. Heck, in this day and age the criminal could sue the company for having such lax standards making it too easy for the theft of the gun; thereby enabling the criminal to act!

    So, as was explained to me, to avoid the theft or loss of the firearm, UPS (and the other carriers) requires next day shipping in order to keep the firearm as secure as possible, and in less hands. For them it is a game of "hot potato" and we pay to ensure they don't get burned.
    If at first you don't succeed shoot and shoot again!
