    I go to the ups depot with the lower. Tell them I want it insured and with adult signature required. Send it ground. Live happily ever after. It is going to an ffl in MA.

    That's what I've done. Make sure you remember to include the buyer's name for the FFL as well so they know who to hold it for.

    Most FFLs will request a copy of your DL if receiving from a private party.

    Sec. 478.31 Delivery by common or contract carrier.

    (a) No person shall knowingly deliver or cause to be delivered to
    any common or contract carrier for transportation or shipment in
    interstate or foreign commerce to any person other than a licensed
    importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector,
    any package or other container in which there is any firearm or
    ammunition without written notice to the carrier that such firearm or
    ammunition is being transported or shipped: Provided, That any passenger
    who owns or legally possesses a firearm or ammunition being transported
    aboard any common or contract carrier for movement with the passenger in
    interstate or foreign commerce may deliver said

    [[Page 33]]

    firearm or ammunition into the custody of the pilot, captain, conductor
    or operator of such common or contract carrier for the duration of that
    trip without violating any provision of this part.


    *shrug* apparently you only have to tell them if you are sending it to a private party in interstate commerce which you cant do anyways. I dont know. That paragraph above is one large piece of shit.

    You pretty much got it, you could still ship to a private party intrastate legally without going through a ffl and then be legally required to notify UPS, but as it stands if the destination is a ffl you have no legal requirement to notify. UPS might not want to make an insurance claim if you don't but...

    well that specifically mentions interstate or foreign commerce. doesn't say anything about intrastate. so this is essential a pointless regulation

    CT law requires all out of state transfers to be transfered and shipped through an FFL.

    I was just looking it up, I think I may have been inaccurate to say it applies to rifles. I know it applies to handguns.

    I didn't even see the handgun restriction. Can you paste it in?

    Even swap. Apprarently he has an sdm upper that he wanted to buy a prs for. He bought 3 pre-ban lowers last week and his wife was complaining so he is going to swap one off for my lower.
