    I've been told now by two persons that you can ship a rifle from one person to another using the U.S. Post Office and you don't have to Use an FFL holder. Any one have any info. on the subject?

    Since it's crossing state lines, it needs to go to an FFL in the recipient's state.

    I'm 100% certain that's incorrect.

    You can ship to some one in you state(check your state regulations).
    But as far as fed regs., you can only ship out of state to an FFL holder.
    Hope that helps.

    The only difference, I believe is that rifles can go by US Post Office, handguns must go by FedEx or UPS (and overnight by their regs), but it must go to an FFL on the receiving end, regardless.
