Well, the short story is I moved to Texas, and when I did I took all the guns that were mine outright. However there were a great many more at the Bank of Dad, to be loaned out for all manner of sporting uses. A few more have been deemed mine. As of this writing, the ATF maintains that one can mail a gun to oneself, but there's not a common carrier left that'll do it. Major airlines call an item with dimensions that add up to more than 62 inches oversized, and United (the only one I called) says oversized baggage is $200 to check. That versus $45 a pop plus FFL transfer fee to do it USPS. Does anyone know of a better (and yeah, legal) way, or am I doomed to fly up and drive back in a rental when the old man meets his great reward?
