Well after I retrain I'm hoping to go to Alaska, but I was wondering how yall get ammo and C&R guns shipped up there? It seems I oalways see lower 48 for shipping?

Ammo's a pain to ship, lots of regulations that prevent it from being shipped by air. Most small things like guns come up by air.

So I guess if I get lucky enough to go I should buy in bulk and U-haul it up there? If it can go through Canada that is.

I would hate to have to drive that far

Better check ahead on taking guns through Canada. They are pretty touchy about Americans with guns.

You might look at taking the ferry. It would cost a hunk of change, but you'd be under US law all the way.

I checked with the Canucks on my guns,and pretty much all I would be able to take would be C&R stuff, everything else would have to go another way. I'll have to look at the ferry service.

When I moved up from Florida the moveing company let me ship all of my rifles with them . They would not accept any of my pistols. We drove to Seatle and shipped the Jeep and put the hand guns in our luggage .

Keep in mind it isn't just guns and ammo you get hosed on . EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WILL CHARGE YOU MORE FOR LIVEING UP HERE. Even if they can just drop it in the USPS system they tell you it has to be 2 day air or they won't let you buy it . The only exception I have seen so far is Magman in the EE . He shipped to me at the same price as anyone even though his ad said CONUS.

When I drove from AK to TX they asked specifically if I had any guns in the vehicle. I said yes, they then asked if they were pistols and if they were semi-auto - I just said hunting shotguns and rifles... Are you in the military for retraining?
