    Well I was wondering the particulars on selling and shipping a shotgun here. I know not to send anything till payment is recieved. I know they must get shipped to a FFL dealer, But can I send it to the dealer or do I need to have it sent from a dealer as well?


    THANKS ALL

    Jo

    Have the buyer send you a signed copy of his dealers
    federal firearms license. You ship the shotgun to the address
    on the FFL. Include a copy of your drivers license with the
    gun. Have the buyer include a certified check or postal
    money order. Insure the gun for enough to cover your
    asking price.

    Sky buster is correct. I mostly use the USPS. I had one gun damaged about 6 months ago. The postal service reimbursed me for the damages within 3 weeks. I usually ship Priority Mail, delivery confirmation and insured. Ed

    You need to go on the BATF web site and check the FFL to make sure it is valid.
