Ive searched in old threads and its hard to find an exact answer to my question so Ill ask again.
Friend of mine is from Hawaii and has 2 rifles he wants his Father to ship out to him. One he is going to keep and the other I am going to buy.
What all is involved in shipping it. Has to go to an FFL right? How does that work if the rifles are already his? Will he have to go through a background check again?

If he owns them then he can ship them to himself. He can ship the rifles USPS vs UPS Fed-ex. Just lable them as machine parts, and insure.

The one going to him can go direct. There is no ownership change. The one being sold to you has to go to an FFL in California, where YOU will have to execute the necessary federal and state paperwork to take possesion of it.

Since they are rifles, they can go Fed Ex or USPS. DO NOT use UPS. They suck dick and will break them.

Yeah, UPS is a pain in the ass and could screw up a wet dream. If you have a FFL UPS is better to deal with, but not if your a civillian. I ship FedEx, never had any hassles.

he can ship them to himself. As if he were going on a hunting trip the ATF says the owner may ship them to a residence c/o himself. Use Fedex , never a hassle and you aren't lying about what's in the box if they don't ask( never has anyone asked me) and if they .. it's sporting goods.
