As it turnes out, a relitive I never knew left me 2 rifles and a shotgun. That is all I know. I have no idea what they are, or what condition they are in, however my mom tells me that they are old. (thanks for the input, mom). I've never dealt with shipping firearms, so I've got a few questions.

I'm assuming that they need to be shipped to an FFL?
USPS, UPS, Fed Ex?
Is there a certain insurance to get?
How about any paperwork?

I'm sorry for the stupid questions, but I've gotta find this out! Thanks.

You're welcome. And thanks for your service. My children slept peacefully last night.

If they are a formal bequest from an estate, they can be shipped directly to you with no FFL involvement. See 27CFR§478.30(a).
