How to ship firearms by UPS

To "dogtown tom"You might want to revisit the UPS web page. They say there that "UPS accepts firearms for transportation "only between licensed importers, licensed manufacturers, licensed dealers, and licensed..." collectors. I have experienced this at both UPS and FED EX shipping centers not allowing non-licensees to send firearms to another non-licensee when the recipient is in the same state and CAN receive a firearm legally. The agents there stated that one party (either the sender or the recipient) MUST be a F.F.L. license holder.

Shipping a long gun intrastate, then use the USPS
Shipping a handgun intrastate, ship to a FFL

I have used Fedex to intrastate long guns a few times - they had no issue with it

I would if I could, but the "Edit" feature is no longer available.
See post #68 for my update.

Shipping to yourself

Ok I checked ATF and it looks like I can ship a handgun to myself in another state. But checking Fedex and Ups it doesn't seem like i can do that unless it is to a FFL holder.
Any suggestions on who I can ship with? I could take it in my luggage but don't trust TSA.

Ummmm...... you don't trust TSA? The gun goes in a locked case that only you have the key or combo to and if TSA wants to open the case, you have to be there for it. Once it passes initial TSA screening, which you are usually present for anyway, TSA pretty much is 100% hands off your luggage. Hundreds if not thousands of firearms travel every day in this country in checked baggage, so what is the TSA doing to all those people with those firearms?

You might be able to find a freight shipping company like maybe yellow freight that services both your origin and destination....look up "LTL freight" carriers - LTL meaning less than truckload.
