    Guys looking for proper procedure. A relative wants to pass down a Remington shot gun to a nephew. Relative lives in Colorado nephew lives in Minnesota. What needs to be done to ship the shot gun legally? UPS? Thanks

    Needs to ship to an FFL in the nephews home state for transfer. Nephew to be at least 18 years of age. Can ship UPS/FedEx ground or USPS.

    Before shipping, I would contact the receiving FFL and be sure he's OK with private shipping to him. There are a few dealers who won't accept shipments from non-FFL.

    Another option is the relative in Colorado could take the shotgun to Minnesota so he can do the transfer at an FFL in person.

    Or the nephew can go to Colorado and do the transfer at a Colorado FFL in person. The transfer must go through an FFL, though. As others have already stated, it's a matter of finding an FFL, meeting their company policy, and mailing or otherwise delivering the shotgun to the FFL for the transfer. US Post Office is perfectly legal for that.
