Unless you use an escrow service (see GunBroker) there is no way to know for sure.This is why you you check the sellers feedback (AS A SELLER) before finalazing any transaction.
Shipping fee depends on what is being shipped, whether it is USPS/UPS/FedEx, weight, box dimensions, amount of insurance.
Interstate shipments must be received by a licensed dealer. Use the "Find a transfer dealer" search engine at GunBroker to see what they charge in your area.......fees vary greatly.
