    WTS: Taurus PT22 Blue w/ rosewood grips; comes with factory box, spare mag and manual. $120, selling it to buy something else; I live west of Topeka Ks, and would prefer to sell face to face.


    Sorry the picture is so big, I might also consider a trader for a hipoint 9mm or .45

    Man, if you lived closer to SC, I'd pick that baby up... the gunshop down the street has these marked $239 NIB, but they aren't selling them either. :lol: That's a fair price, and i hope someone get with you.

    gotta ship it overnight to a FFL in the buyer's state. The buyer must have made plans for this to happen with the FFL, and the buyer would have to pay the FFL anywhere from $15-$40 for a transfer... then he can take custody of the firearm... it's best to FTF when dealing with firearms, just my $0.02

    Gotcha, thanx pills, preciate the info
  11. Check again. It is legal to ship a handgun to an FFL in another state. You may not use USPS, but can ship otherwise without going through an FFL on both ends.

    NDS I may be wrong. I KNOW you can't do it with USPS or UPS. FedUP may allow it. I would love to see something that tells me I am wrong if you could show it.

    Here is exactly what the ATF 'Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide' (ATF P 5300.4) says:
    (B9) May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by carrier?
    A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by carrier to a resident of his or her own state or to a licensee in any state. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm and prohibits common or contract carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm. [18 U. S. C. 922( a)( 2)( A) and 922( e), 27 CFR 178.31]


    Your state law, may require you to ship from an FFL.

    Shipment by Unlicensed Persons
    Any shipper who does not have a Federal Firearms License (FFL) is considered to be an 'unlicensed person'. This section contains information on how unlicensed persons can ship firearms. If you have an FFL, please skip to the next section for shipping suggestions.

    The most important thing to know is that you must only ship guns to a licensee. If the buyer is not a licensed dealer, he will have to make arrangements with a dealer in his state to ship the item to.

    Before you ship a gun, the buyer must fax or mail you a copy of the licensee's signed FFL license. You can only ship the gun to the address on the license. You must inform the carrier that the package contains a firearm. Of course, the firearm cannot be shipped loaded; ammunition may not be shipped in the same box. You should take the copy of the signed FFL with you when you take the item to be shipped in case the shipper wishes to see it.

    Notes on specific shippers:

    US Mail: An unlicensed person can ship a rifle or shotgun by US Mail. Unlicensed persons cannot ship a handgun by US Mail. Postal regulations allow the Post Office to open your package for inspection. Ammunition cannot be shipped by US Mail. You can search the US Post Offer Postal Explorer site for specific USPS regulations regarding firearms and ammunition.

    FedEx: FedEx will only ship firearms via their Priority Overnight service. Ammunition must be shipped as dangerous goods.

    UPS: UPS will accept handgun shipments by Next Day Air only. Rifles and shotguns can be shipped by UPS ground service. UPS will accept shipments of ammunition. UPS does not allow shipment of firearms FROM an unlicensed person (even to an FFL), unless the stated reason for the firearm shipment is for repair or modifications.

    Most other shippers will no longer accept firearm shipments. Airborne and Roadway have specifically prohibited firearm shipments.
  16. that sux since overnighting would probably be more expensive than the actual gun itself.
  17. How does it feed? I had the same pistol years ago and it did nothing but jam. Got rid of it pretty quick, but being the Taurus fan that I am, I would like to think that it was just the pistol I had.

    Anyone have anything to give to the fedup people when they say it can't be done because of their policies?

    As I said earlier, USPS, UPS will not do it. I didn't mention DHL/Airborne but they will not either. I have been told by Fedup that they will not do it. It doesn't matter if the law says they should if they refuse you are still holding the gun. I tried referring them to the gunbroker faq and they say gunbroker who? ;)

    Sorry for hijacking this thread.

    That depends on what state you are in, federal regulations do not prevent the shipment of a handgun.

    The only federal limitation on shipping a handgun only prevent you from using the postal service to do so
