First, there is no law concerning time of shipping firearms. The carriers may make rules on shipping...but these are not laws and you cannot be prosecuted as such. Long-guns can be shipped via USPS or private common carrier. Handguns shipped using UPS require overnight (UPS THIEVES) and this may be what you are mixed up on. The theft loss was so great, that UPS claimed it was for the senders saftey....not the case, it was to curtail company theft. I ship all long-guns UPS Ground 3-5 days, handguns go USPS Priority Registered Mail (FFL) 3-5 days. Fed-Ex and UPS claim to require overnight shipping of handguns, but it simply a rule (theirs) and not the law, and this rule can be side stepped too. Regards LTS
