Shipping and Receiving Handguns

Just wondering about this. In the last four months I have purchased three handguns on Gun Broker. All three have shipped to my FFL UPS second day. The last one was from a dealer that had over four thousand sales on GB. How do they get away with shipping second day instead of overnight. I am looking at sending a handgun out for work and the smith said to make sure I ship overnight per the UPS rules. What do you guys know and how do you ship?

Does the label say "Second Day Air", or did it arrive in two days? Is it possible that they've just had a next-day ship date?

they have all been second day confirmed by tracking number. I have just been told that FFL holders may have agreements with UPS that allows them to ship UPS second day. I'll ask my UPS counter person next time I go to the hub and see what they say.

It is based on air express, not on time. From a main service counter.
A FFL to FFL shipment can go USPO snail mail. My last purchase, last August, came that way far cheaper than Fed ex or UPS.
I learned from Sig that UPS gets iffy at times, so they settled on Fed ex.
I did two with Sig and both were second day air.
Just go to GB shipping and it will link you to a Federal site with all the guidelines.
All that is needed is a reciever FFL. You can drop off at fed ex yourself. Package must not have any markings of a gun. You must tell the Fed ex person that it is a gun. I did it three times no problem.

On GB it says the handguns must go overnight or next day, For both dealers and non dealers.

I've sent the gun for warranty repair and Sig send me a Fedex label for 2nd Day Air. It also came back the same way. When I purchased it, it came from the Store to my FFL USPS flat rate medium box. I think only FFLs are allow to use Postal Service to send guns.
Send it Fedex second day or find FFL that will send it for you [he will probably charge you for it]
