    I'm moving to FL and want to take my gun but of course I can't bring it on the plane. :mad: You have to go through a FFL right? Is it fine to mail it to myself and pick it up in FL even if I'm not yet a resident there? I assume I still have to pay transfer fees. :hs:

    It isn't legal, but chances are very good you will be fine.

    First, you can bring a gun on the plane, is just has to be in checked luggage. It should also be legal to ship them to yourself without a FFL. Remember no handguns through the USPS. I'd challenge dissenters to cite the law that would disallow it. It should be in 18 U.S.C. 922 I believe

    yeah it is legal to have a gun with you on a plane aslong as it is in checked luggage and you tell the flight company.

    It is legal to mail a firearm to yourself using USPS or UPS.

    Address it to your name.

    You couldn't be more wrong.

    Head over to the ATF, and ask them:

    You'll still need to follow the rules of whoever you are shipping it through, of course

    I have traveled with firearms many times. I used one of my locking gun cases and declared them at the check-in counter and off they went, in the belly of the plane INTO California. :coold:

    If you decide to ship it ups covertly, make sure you tape up the box and pack it really well.. because things have a tendancy to break open in shipment..

    Theres no need to UPS it "covertly". Its fully legal to send weapons. YOu dont have to disclose what it is unless company policy and the company cannot put a firearms id sticker on the box.

    USPS = only long guns
    Others = whatever their policy is
