1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Nice revolver Ray but are you sure you have to have $100 to ship it? It has to go next day air and all but that seems excessive. I've shipped a couple of handguns bigger than that insured and all for $40-50.

    From what I've read the "ladysmith" guns are supposed to have better trigger pulls than the regular production revolvers. Is it a 5 shot?

    Ray, you can ship that revolver anywhere in the US for around $15 if it fits in a large USPS flat rate priority mail box!!

    BE CAREFUL! Only a license dealer can ship a handgun via the US Post Office. A private individual can only ship long guns.

    Best way is to get an FFL to ship it ground. Take all your prepared shipping material & put bit in his books & wrap in front of him & give it to him to ship. I give my dealer $10-$20 or does it for free if I got the gun from another source but it went thru his books. Yes,I have done my dealer some money making favors.

    The way to ship it with valid insurance is to take it to FedEx and declare it as firearm. I shipped one today for $44 next day priority, which is required by Fed Ex. This is the only way insurance will cover it. I do not use United Package Smashers.

    I ship firearms on a regular basis. Without FFL, DO NOT USE USPS for handguns.

    BTW, the Ladysmith basically has a different (blue or red) trigger rebound spring, and a little etching for the extra $$.

    For the price you are asking, you might try an auction site, or Smith & Wesson forum.

    An individual may only ship a handgun through a licensed dealer. That said, USPS Priority Mail flat rate boxes are the cheapest. I've shipped dozens that way!!

    Dear Ollie

    Under Federal Law, any FFL may receive a firearm from any individual. A common carrier must be used if shipped. Some dealers will not accept a firearm from an individual. That is their choice, NOT the law. If they say that is the law, ask for the reference, or seek another transferring dealer.

    An individual may ship even to CA, as long as the arm is on the "list".

    As a partner in a venture with both class 1 (dealer in firearms other than destructive devices) and class 7 (manufacturer of firearms and ammunition) FFL, I have dealings with this regularly.
