    Shipping a gun from Arkansas

    Anyone know what the law is? I searched but could not fins an answer.

    I am wondering if I can ship a gun to an FFL in another state.

    Thanks

    You can ship to a FFL in another State.
    Handguns must go "next day air". Handguns can't go US mail.
    Make sure the FFL you're shipping to will accept it from an individual.

    Cheapest way is have your FFL ship it for you. They can use regular US mail.

    Guns can generally be shipped by anyone over 21 in the U.S.A. to a Federally Licensed Firearms dealer. You can use UPS, FED-EX or the US post office for long guns. Identify it as a long gun to the counter person and be sure no ammo is in the gun or package. Do not put anything on the package identifying it as a firearm. Do put your return address on the box and inside the box. Insure it with adult signature required. Be sure this is on the box. Guns [rifles or shotguns] sent by UPS can be shipped by ground and is the cheapest. You must ship complete working guns [not parts] from a UPS company owned center, and not a private shipping center. At times UPS shipping centers will not ship pistol "Parts" by ground. This is frustrating as there is no violation of their rules, just stupid employees that have no clue. Call Me! FED-EX requires all guns be disabled and shipped overnight air and will cost to much. I will not ship back by FED-EX unless you have an account number with them, and it is parts and not an assembled gun. They can pick up at my shop. The post office will ship long guns to a dealer and back to you. But not pistols. The only exception is Antique pistols that do not use modern cartridges. Modern copies of old black powder pistols can be shipped by the US post office. KNOW THIS!!! US postal definition of "antique" is different from the one used by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms!!!!! Antique means a gun that does not use cartridges,[ or ammo is not available ]to the post office. ATF uses pre 1898 as the date for an antique with some exceptions for valuable relics and curios. ONLY Dealers can ship modern pistols by the post office to another dealer. Dealers must fill out postal form #1508 to be legal. Gun parts like a slide or barrel for a modern pistol can be shipped by the US post office as long as the frame is not included, by anyone. Pistols can be shipped by anyone over 21 years of age by UPS to me as I am a licensed dealer. [Except from some anti gun states]. To save money you can disassemble a pistol so it can not be shot. Then it becomes "gun parts" and can be shipped by UPS ground for a lower price. This is much cheaper than overnight air. I can ship it back this way and you save money. Always insure with adult signature required!! UPS will provide the label. Just ask for their label! If you should encounter someone at any shipping company that refuses to ship, please let me know and they will be reported. If a postal employee refuses to ship a gun to me, then call me and my postal manager will call them and read the postal code to them. Need to know more?
