UPS just told me they don't ship from firearm owner to ffl holding gunsmith anymore. I haven't tried USPS or FedEX . Are they the same ? UPS told me they quit doing this about a year ago. Do we now have to ship exclusively from FFL to FFL ?

Is it against the law to box a rifle up and cover any markings indicating a firearm is inside,take it to post office and ship?

(I'm not an FFL)

Not all, but many rifle boxes you can "unfold" to a flat piece of card board, and then "refold" in reverse so all of the printing is on the inside. Then just put the factory foam/packing in the box and you're ready to go.

Update. After calling 1-800 number and complaining I received a call from service center that denied me and they told me they could ship it if I get a label from gunsmith. The 1-800 complaint center said I could bring it to another UPS center in a neighboring town and could ship it with no problem. WTF. I aint done with this. I will probably move UPS to my Chit list before this is over.

It's not like I walked in there with naked rifle in hand. It was in Doskosill case that was in a plain cardboard box.

I've been told the same before. Just shipped one this week. Make sure you are not using a "UPS Store", but rather a hub location. Some of the stores refuse firearm shipments.

They are wrong then. Print out the UPS requirements directly from their website and go back prepared. I always have them printed out and in my back pocket when I go in, just in case. Some anti-gun UPS workers and managers can be problematic. Are you shipping a handgun or long gun?

The "UPS Stores" are franchises, so they make their own rules. I have a UPS Store about 3 miles from here, but have to make a 36 mile round trip to the UPS Center whenever I want to ship a long gun.

If you open a UPS or FedEx account online you can print out the shipping label and have the package picked up or drop it off at a shipping center without telling anyone what is in the box.

But you still need to disclose that a firearm is in the package when filling out the on-line shipping label process.

Just saying, the law says you need to disclose you are shipping a firearm. Whether your particular driver cares or not is irrelevant.... Bypass that fact at your own risk.

This is not a law as USP doesn't make law..

From UPS website.
