    The local (no the only one in town) UPS and FedEx shipper rufuses to handle firearms. I had to go to Olympia to the Kinkos/FedEx and it was a no brainer. I was shipping my new Marlin 1894FG back to the factory for a feed jam problem. If you are shipping to a rifle, it is different than a piston. Even USPS will mail a rifle. But if you are shipping to another individual, they won't ship it, long or short gun.

    Usually your storefronts won't accept a firearm for shipping. If shipping a long gun, use the post office. If going to a private party (such as an FFL)vs a manufacturer, you will need a copy of his FFL.

    Pistols have to go by common carrier (FedEx or UPS) and is expensive because they require overnight as a company policy. You can sometimes save a little bit of money by sending FedEx second day saver or whatever it is called.

    Try calling the storefronts before you go, it may save you some gas running around.
