Can anyone verify that FedEx no longer requires you to mail a hand gun over night? Going ground would save a lot of cash.

I don't think there's been any changes. Go to the FedEx website and search "firearm shipment" and you'll get the current policy. There's a lengthy thread on the subject running on 1911forum.com with a lot of quotes from the various government and carrier rergulations.

FedEx Ground will not accept for transport handguns, assembled or disassembled.


That's why you don't tell them. I took in a pistol a while back, and the girl asked me if it contained powders, chemicals, or glass. No ma'am!

$11 to ship instead of $60+ sounded OK to me.

You do that and you have no recourse if your gun is lost or stolen.

You want to mail it overnight, less chance of it being stolen.
