Here is my latest example. I purchased a Marlin 336RC .35 caliber lever action rifle. I bought it from the owner which lives out of state. He shipped it directly to me with no FFL here in FL.

Assuming that you and the seller actually did this you are incredibly stupid to post it on the internet unless you like our federal prisons.

That is completely illegal if there isn't an FFL holder in your house! Just cause you did it doesn't make it legal. You very well may get a knock on your door by men in suits, and that is if you are lucky. Maybe you'll get a flash bang and your door will be knocked in. If that happens I suggest yelling I give up and hitting the deck.

Do the laws hold through for trading guns state to state? Does anyone for sure.

It is very simple... If the gun crosses state lines then the RECEIVER (person receiving the firearm from the shipper) OF THE FIREARM MUST BE AN 01 FFL at a minimum (03 FFL if the firearm is classified as a Curio & Relic). The Federal Gov't has this power under the interstate commerce clause of the US Constitution.

In the case of handguns the USPS will not and cannot legally ship them. They must go UPS or FEDEX and at least in Michigan must go 01 FFL (in state) to 01 FFL (purchasers state).

If you ship intrastate in Michigan long guns can go from your door to the new owner... Handguns must either be FTF or FFL to FFL as there is paperwork to be filled out with every handgun transfer.

Long gun shipping is very simple, cut and dried. Handgun shipping becomes more cumbersome because of varying handgun laws within the various states. Some much more strict than others.

Default How about muzzle loaders? To answer the other guys question

Can Black powder guns or muzzle loaders be shipped. You can buy them from cabela's or anyplace through shipping? Could a person send the barrel and then the rest of the gun as gun parts person to person

BP guns do not need to go to a FFL dealer unless it is capable of being turned into a center fire like the TC encore.

I have always wondered how that applies to muzzle loaders. I just ordered a CVA from Cabela's and nothing required other than my signiture. How differet is it selling from one individual to another. I know there are a couple states it isn't allowed.
