Thread: Transfer of firearms

  1. #1

    Default Transfer of firearms

    OK, so someone brought this up in another thread and I was wondering if anyone could confirm this for me.

    You can't mail a firearm to someone else without transfering it through a FFL. But, can you mail a firearm to yourself? I know you can mail to and from the factory without and FFL because I've done it. It makes sense that you should be able to mail a firearm to yourself since there is no "transfer" taking place. Of course, if you couldn't it really wouldn't suprise me. Does anyone know for sure?

    From:
    Joe Schmoe
    123 TieDye Lane
    Anywhere, CA 92000

    To:
    Joe Schmoe
    456 Moose Street
    Somewhere, AK 99500

    See, no transfer of ownership. So is an FFL required to "transfer" a firearm or to mail it?

    You must ship your gun to a FFL holder (a dealer) if in another state. You cannot mail a hand gun USPS. You can use a common carrier (UPS)

    See my post in the hunting forums. You can mail long guns to yourself in another state for the purpose of hunting.
