I need a FFL Dealer for ME to ME?

Hi,

Im moving from PR to CO and i have some firearms that i plan to bring with me in the "checked bags" but some other i need to send to me by Mail. Someone told me today that i NOT need a FFL dealer to send and receive my firearm from ME to ME, this is very hard for me because i hear all of my life that i need an FFL dealer to send a firearm thru USPS Mail.

Thanks in advance for all help and information :-)

you might be better off just adding another piece of baggage and bringing them with you

I wouldn't send a firearm through USPS. I'd use FedEx. Just sayin.

I wouldn't take with me in a checked bag. What if the aircraft is diverted to NYC?


FFL to FFL is best. You cannot mail guns if you don't have an FFL!

You can send them from yourself to yourself, no problem. Somebody else may need to quote you chapter and verse, but going through an FFL is only needed when there will be a change of ownership across state lines. The guns aren't changing hands, only locations.

So what if it is diverted? Not a big deal

And yes you can ship long guns without a FFL

Under Federal law, you are allowed to ship firearms to yourself directly, without going through an FFL. To satisfy the law, YOU must pack the firearms, YOU must take them to the shipper and send them on their way, and only YOU may open the package(s) at the receiving end. If they will arrive before you, you can send them in care of a third party, but that person must understand that he/she may NOT open the packages.

If the firearms are rifles or shotguns, you can send them by mail. If they are handguns, you may NOT use the mail, you must ship by common carrier (FedEx, UPS, DHL).

Oh, yes -- a VERY big deal.
