    The way I read the regs, after much searching, is that I can use the USPS to mail my rifles across state lines. As long as they are adressed to me, and someone is there to receive them. I plan on using registered mail, just so there is extra signing taking place for them.

    Am I right on this?

    In a word, NO. Shipping a firearm over state lines to yourself is fine. This is good if, for instance, you are driving from the lower 48 to Alaska and don't want to be without a firearm when you get there. Mail the gun, drive there, receive it. It also works if you are moving and don't trust the movers.

    What you suggest you are going to do is a transfer. The person signing for the gun and you would be committing a federal felony. True, you can mail long guns to yourself anywhere but you cannot mail them to somebody else no matter who the package is addressed to. That is CLEARLY a transfer.

    Just ask for a Signature Confirmation for yourself and/or have your mail put on Hold when you send the rifle and the PO will hold your stuff 'til you get back.
