Just FYI or anyone who has a question about shipping a firearm. This is the BATF Regulation. Don't want to see anyone spend time in a Federal prison just for legally selling a gun and transferring improperly. Hope this Helps...

Here's the link...

Nope... muzzleloaders are not regulated by the BATF, and are not registered.

If the firing pin is removed is it considered a firearm? Could you ship a gun without a firing pin to an unlicensed recipient without penalty?

No, removing the firing pin has no effect. it is the receiver that matters.
you cna ship the entire gun in parts except for the receiver legally without a license. However, shipping the receiver is like shipping the entire gun.

typically what happens for me is that I will receive a signed copy of the dealer's FFL through a) mail, b) FAX or c) email. Once i get it and verify it through the FFLezcheck then ship the gun with receipt and a copy of my FFL.

Many dealers (including me) won't accept a gun for sale or trade except form a dealer. I will accept one from a non FFL holder for repairs. Just made you you have it set for adult signature only and make sure you have FULL insurance on it. It also help to take a picture of it before you ship it. I have sene some amazing thing UPs can do to a gun and having a photo iof it to prove it was in good condition before you ship will help in any possible insurance claims. It saved my bacon twice.

It helps keep the paper trail alive. Supposedly it helps trace a gun should it be stolen and then shipped. It also helps insure that you know who exactly on the other end is getting your gun. you would not believe the calls I get from people who want a gun shipped. some of them really can raise the hair on my neck....

walkerdog,

No, bows are not firearms, therefore you can ship them anywhere you want, through regular mail.

As for your other question, it doesnt matter if the buyer has an FFL. Its legal to sell them a gun as long as they are allowed to own one (in most states). Its the shipping part that concerns the FFL. If you have to ship it somewhere, it MUST be shipped from dealer to dealer. Its a good idea to make sure a local dealer will ship a gun for you before you sell it, unless you are offering it for local pick up only. It is also a good idea to make sure the buyer has a dealer willing to accept and transfer the gun to them in the case of shipping.

That is not what it says in the link that is posted, it says anyone can send it, but it has to be recieved by a FFL.
