    What train are you going to be riding on? I'd check their regulations first.


    Memberships: NRA, GOA, USCCA
    Guns: Glock 26, Ruger LCP, Beretta 90-Two .40, Beretta PX4 Storm Subcompact 9MM, Beretta Tomcat, Bushmaster Patrolman M4

    Amtrak says no guns! So can I ship it?

    Yes, you may ship your gun to yourself c/o another person. If it is a handgun, it must go by Fedex or UPS. If it is a long gun you may mail it via USPS.

    If you can afford to fly, just declare them like I do when I travel.
