valvecovers .....the dealer wants to ship the gun back,and start the whole process over,and i think that is ridiculous.
what is going on here????
It's not YOUR problem, it's the buyers problem.
The dealer the buyer chose probably has a personal or business policy to only receive firearms from other licensed dealers..........it was either the buyers responsibility or his dealer's to let you know that policy.
Federal law clearly permits a nonlicensee to ship a firearm to a licensed dealer. If he says otherwise he is an idiot.
If the buyers dealer sent you his FFL WITHOUT mentioning his requirement to accept firearms only from other dealers......tell him to pound sand. Your buyer needs to talk to his dealer immediately.
If his shipping instructions stated that he will only accept shipments from other dealers..........you screwed up.
