    Disassembled? How the hell do you disassemble a revolver to ship? I had a lock on it through the barrel and the cylender(sp?) what else could I do? The box was sealed and they didnt ask me to open it but I thought that I would check hear before shipping it just locked up. Any one have any ideas?

    You locked it up properly. Revolvers aren't meant to be user disassembled.

    Inform them "it is unloaded, secured in such a condition that it could not be loaded and is safe for shipment, and you are not shipping ammunition with it". Key here is to present yourself as a person who knows what they're doing. Cos the FedEx guy probably doesn't. Even if they did open, it's unlikely he'd actually know if it was secured properly or not.

    This is a copy of FedEx's terms for shipping firearms. http://www.fedex.com/us/services/express/termsandconditions/us/firearms.html

    If you like, print that and bring it with you. (Cos it'll probably be the counter guy's first time ever reading it.)

    So if I may ask, how does MrBill get the key to unlock the gunlock?

    I put the keys to the lock in the mail yesterday to him so that they will get there before the fire arm does. Then I ship the firearm. That way they cannot switch guns or they would have to change the lock on it and put it back on the exact way that I did.
