I hope the OP and others here won't mind if I ask a related question please - -
I've come across ads in GunBroker, GunsAmerica, etc where private parties are selling guns and state that the buyers FFL must be willing to accept a gun from a private party. When I contacted some of these individuals they said that they use a local FFL to ship handguns by Priority Mail. So, if the seller is using an FFL to ship the gun - - why wouldnt a buyers FFL accept it ?
One of my local FFLs won't accept handguns from private sellers, but I always thought this was in the case of a private seller shipping it to them by overnite UPS or FedX. (Like in the instance mentioned by the OP.) Perhaps someone can clarify this for me. Thank you.
