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?

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.

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]
