    Just double checking, the only way to sell a gun to someone out of state is mailing FFL to FFL right? I work with a guy that lives in OHIO and he wants to buy a pistol off of me, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to hard way if I didnt have to.

    You can ship it yourself as long as the recipient is an FFL.

    They do not have to go FFL to FFL.

    If you found yourself in Ohio, I believe you could also both go into an ohio FFL and do the transfer that way.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    That is correct but you can use UPS or Fedex.

    Yes, but there are requirements dependent upon weapon type

    UPS and Fedex will ship any legal weapon. even Machine guns.

    I prefer UPS as they do a fine job and are cheaper than Fedex.

    I have both shipped and received firearms via UPS.

    Handguns and rifles.

    I prefer FedEx as the UPS people will leave packages on my porch, even the ones that are clearly marked "Adult Signature Required." FedEx has never done this.

    PM me for some hints on shipping that I've learned.

    This is true, however, some FFL holders choose to only accept firearms from other FFL holders.

    That is weird that the driver is doing that?? I would have reported him ... he would have been fired too! My brother has worked for UPS and they don't tolerate that when they know about it.

    As for some FFL's only receiving from other FFL's ....Find a diff FFL!!

    I always love it when people in the firearms community take an already strict law and make it harder to work with out of stupidity!

    Based on your additional information...

    It is unlawful for an individual to ship a handgun via USPS. A common carrier must be used. I prefer UPS because of their tracking. Also, Fedex uses "independent contractor" delivery methods.

    UPS Stores have denied shipping my firearms, upon declaration of contents for shipping insurance, and I've had to use an official hub location.

    Shipping of handguns by UPS must be done "next day air". And I have on occasions been required to provide the recipient's ffl. Of course I have never been required whenever I've shipped firearms interstate to myself.
