Re: Shipping a rifle?
You can ship a long gun, but not a revolver, without an FFL to a resident of the same state. I have been selling a collection of Sako rifles. All shipped and insured USPS in packed rifle boxes. (Heard some horror stories aobut UPS and FEDEX). Last summer, two rifles arrived broken at the grips. I reimbursed the buyers and got them back, made claim to USPS online. They wanted all my <u> </u> original <u> </u> receipts, bills of sale, appraisals, photos, etc., etc. After 4 months going back and forth, they finally paid the full insured values, and I had to take the broken guns to local PO for retention. I lost about $150 on both deals. Be sure to read the USPS instructions re packing. If not packed well, they can deny your claim.
