I have never shipped a gun before. Myself. FFLs have done that on my behalf in the past.
But some folks find a need to ship their Taurus back to the factory for warranty work. Hey, it does happen. Or maybe your XD has a live round in the chamber that it won't let go of and you need to send it to Illinoise to make it not be that way.
For any of that, I am under the impression you can UPS it your ownself, legally, back to the factory. Not to a buddy, of course. Just to the gunsmith.
Go to Mailboxes Etcetera and they are gonna aks you "What's in the box?"
Then what happens? If I had to guess many places they'd be less alarmed if you said "In the box? Gwyneht Paltrow's head."
I know enough to be extra wary and not try to tap the US Postal Service for this. Serious bad juju going that way.
What does the UPS counter jockeys do when you say "a firearm back for repair work"? And more importantly, does anyone have an experience trying that in a Gun Crow state like mine, or Jersey, or Hawaii, or what have you?
I don't need to ship a gun, I just wanna know what happens when you try.
