    Is it legal to complete an INTRASTATE transfer (approved Form 4 SMG) by registered US Mail? The seller and buyer both are private individuals and NOT dealers. If it is legal, are there any special procedures involved? Do you declare what is in the package? Do you send a copy of the approved Form 4--or the original--with the weapon?
    It would seem strange that it would be legal since it is ILLEGAL for non-licensed individuals to send other non-licensed individuals handguns or long guns through the US Mail.
    Thanks in advance for your responses.

    The only time I mailed a gun out via USPS they wanted to know if I was a dealer, which I was so the conversation ended there. The lady's eyes at the counter got this big :what: when I told her I was shipping a handgun out. It's interesting to encounter someone immersed in the completely opposite direction as I with regards to guns. I am surrounded by them all day long and the post office worker is not. It sure was fun to see her reaction though (without showing it).
