I suppose if a weapon light, laser device contains a lithium ion battery, overnight shipping (air) could be a no no.

No, Federal law requires you to declare you're shpping a firearm at a common carrier if it's NOT going to an FFL.

This only applies to common carriers ( not the post office )

Since we're here again . . .

Shipping a gun - who, how, where, when and why

Howto Order Guns over the Internet (Auctions, Forums, etc)

I maintain the links above, and they point to current laws, regulations & shipper's policies ( which covers the shipment of ammunition )


This information is very helpful. Thank you Nails for taking the time to keep it current. Much appreciated.

Pre paying online for your shipping and having the box totally sealed helps cut down on unneeded conversations..

The reason the person at the counter is talking is to sell extra services.. If you have your label you are not really worth talking to.

My experience is that shipping insurance does not generally work.. Shipping things well packed and packaged does better than insurance.

I've never shipped to a non-FFL, only builders/engravers. Receiving is no problem for us because my wife is an FFL holder, for the past 15 years.
