Thread: Air travel.

  1. You are going to need to purchase or have a lockable container to transport the piece. I would call the airline to make sure that you are clear on their procedures. You will likely have to declare it upon checking in with the airlines prior to going through airport security.

    Please let us know how it works out for you.

    And he's wrong on top of it. Mailing a firearm is no more complicated than mailing a Christmas presant.

  4. United says contained ammunition can be transported in same secure case with gun. TSA says basically the same. So, one unloaded Ruger LCP and one box of ammunition locked up in a Nano 300 cabled to suitcase frame. We're goin. Thanks everyone.

    That's true only if the Christmas present is a firearm. Otherwise, to mail a Christmas present doesn't require an FFL on both ends, and does not preemptively restrict private parties from using the USPS to complete the shipment in the first place. And there's always that little, insignificant detail that sending non-firearm or otherwise non-prohibited Christmas presents through the USPS doesn't expose the sender to heavy fines and time in federal prison.

    If you're advising that the OP should ignore the law prohibiting using the USPS for firearms shipments by private parties, you should review the rules of the forum prohibiting incitements to break the law. I personally have no problem with some such incitements because I have very active powers of discernment and pretty good knowledge of the law, so I can make up my own mind about following such advice or not, but there's a place for everything, and this ain't it.

  6. This from ATF, revised for this year.

    May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by common or contract carrier?

    A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by a common or contract carrier to a resident of his or her or her own State or to a licensee in any State. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm or ammunition, prohibits common or contract carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm and requires obtaining written acknowledgement of receipt.

    [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(2)(A), 922(a)(5), 922(e) and (f); 27 CFR 478.30 and 478.31]

    So, this means I could ship my hand gun to my self and receive it when I get home? I'm in Florida but hold residence in Illinois, does the fact I'm in Florida negate this procedure?

    I recomend UPS, not USPS. I have no experience with FedEx but that's an option.

    Life is as hard as you want to make it. If you want to mail your gun from a UPS Store to an FFL, you can do that. If you want to use an FFL on both ends, you can do that. Laws don't stop criminals so if you want to mail it from a UPS Store directly to your house, you can do that.

    Steps on flying with a firearm.

    1. Get a hard sided case for the firearm, that has a non tsa lock.

    2. No one gets the key or combo, you open the box if needed.

    3. Place unloaded firearm in box, and ammo in crush proof container (original box is fine, magazines are fine if left out of firearm). Place boxes in suitcase.

    3. Go to desk and declare a firearm for check in luggage.

    4. Fill out declaration. Place in suitcase.

    5. Wait near desk till the agent clears you to proceed to security.

    6. If security wants to check box, open the box for them to check. They do not get the key or combo.

    7. Pick up luggage at carousel at destination.

    Takes 10 minutes more tops...takes me less than most travelers who don't fly as frequently with their regular luggage.

    Experience: Almost 4 years flying every other week with a firearm.

    Corn and shell are wrong. Bofh and stringer are right.

    Then you should not use the word, "mailing" when referring to shipping through a private carrier lest it be recognized as advising someone to break the law.

    If you only have 4 years experience then sit down.

    Mailing a firearm is identical in all ways but 2, to mailing anything else.

    1: You have to use a private service like UPS or FedEx, and 2: you have to mail it to your local FFL, not your house.
