Read the law as you will, making a false statement to the carrier might still be a problem. It might not be technically illegal but if something were to happen (the gun is stolen and used in a crime, for example) the carrier could claim that the liability rests with the shipper, who deliberately lied to the carrier. Or the shipper could even be accused of being an accessory before the fact in the crime, since he made it possible by deliberately bypassing the carrier's security measures.

I have found it best to be friendly with my local dealer; if I have to ship a modern gun, he will use the mail at a cost of a few dollars and I can still save enough to pay his fee.
