    For example, if I want to have some custom work done on my CZ P-01, can I ship it to CZ Custom or do I have to have my local FFL ship it for me?

    Thanks for any help.

    You can ship it but as I understand it, it has to go thru an overnight carrier. I just shipped a Glock today to their plant in GA via Fed Ex. I was in and out in 5 minutes and it cost me $52.00 to ship from IL.
    An FFL dealer can ship thru the mail but he will charge you also.

    completely legal

    It is very legal for you to ship your firearm to a repair shop for work. It is just as legal for the same repair shop to ship it directly back to you.

    This is exactly how Ruger handled my LCP. I got a box and called, UPS showed up the next day and took it next day air. When Ruger was done with it, came straight home to me.

    The legal resource I like is NRA.org, click on the ILA tab and go to gun laws. Lots of current info on federal and state by state listing.

    The overnight requirement, as far as I can tell, is not a law, but a requirement of FedEx and UPS. I don't know about any other shipping company. The require it to go overnight so their employees have less time to steal it.

    It is no big deal, take it to ups, it has to go overnight air, early delivery. I sent one in last week, cost about $60.00.

    Your FFL can ship post office. FFL fee + priority flat rate + insurance + signature confirmation = cheaper than UPS or FedEx I shipped one a few weeks ago, cost me $30 while FFL fee is $20.

    I find it cheaper to go through my FFL also.

    $20 FFL fee
    $15.80 USPS insured

    Pistol arrived in 3 days for only $35.80 and I didn't have to mess with anything. I've done this several times and haven't had a problem.

    I used to ship them myself through UPS. But like others I now find it cheaper and less painful to have my local FFL ship it for me.

    Ajoker,

    Not if it doesn't leave the state. He could ship a firearm to himself in Texas if it's coming from a location within Texas.

    I mean unless it's a gun you're buying from a dealer... In that case you still have to go through NiCS
