    anyone know if its legal to ship something to yourself in another state, or does it still have to be shipped to an FFL?

    I have a gun up here (WA)and would rather ship it to my house down in AZ, rather then fly with it next week (being an asian college student right now FTL)

    I'm pretty sure you can ship a gun you own to yourself without going through an FFL.

    A-ok, just no handguns through usps unless you're a dealer.

    also, whats the deal with what method you use shipping fedex/ups?

    is it just their policy if I ship using ground instead of nextday?

    that's just a ups & fedex policy, not law. i guess if you go overnight there's less of a chance for the package to go missing and a gun isn't something they want going missing.

    long guns can be shipped through the usps, though.

    So this got me thinking (not that I own any) but what is the procedure for moving when you own a FA or other Class III?
