I just got comformation from a guy. He's buying one of my shotguns. Does UPS or FedEx or someone else have this type of box?
I didn't think of it when I was selling it. :uhoh:

Funny. You might be better off checking with your local gun dealer rather than UPS.

I've seen guys buy a cheap hard case, tape it well with duct tape, then wrap it in packing paper.

I have purchased gun boxes on Gunbroker on several occasions and Brownell's also sells them, but I believe you have to buy a pk/6 from them. BTW, you may ship long guns through the USPS if sending to an FFL dealer.

Get a bigger one and cut it down to make one for it.

Uline sells them, but your local dealer can probably ship it cheaper.

The boxes that golf clubs come in work well. Last time I shipped a shotgun I used one. They're good for rifles as well. (call me captain obvious lol)

Check out your local mail/packaging store. They'll have something golf-club sized as RD mentioned. If you can, separate the barrel from the action and pack them side-by-side to shorten the box you need. This will reduce your shipping cost.

+1 on the local gun dealer, we give rifle boxes to people when they are looking for them, saves us from cutting them up and disposing of them. Be sure to wrap the shotgun well in bubble wrap and make sure it cannot move around in the box. Tape the box well, then tape again....

Thanks guys for the suggestions. This is my ffirst time shipping, I try to do FTF, but those rich oil boys in Texas seem to be the ones with cash.....:rolleyes:
