Well, I'm leaving for vacation on Friday and just found out that my airline, USA3000, doesn't allow firearms of any kind through your checked luggage. So, I'm pissed to say the least. Anyway, my question is, what is UPS's policy or procedure for shipping a pistol and ammo? Is it even legal or not? Thanks for the responses.

Shit, I tried to ship out the internals to my 1919 out to get machined and the freakin UPS store wouldn't let me ship them out because they were "gun related". Said it's their policy. Assholes

Long guns, you can ship both UPS and USPS, handguns have to go UPS (or other carrier like FedEx). I believe that UPS requires that firearms go through their main offices, and not just any UPS location - so it's up to you whether you tell them or not. (If you don't tell them, it's not like you're violating a law or anything, just irritating company policy - and that way you can just drop it at a local UPS store).

You can ship it addressed to yourself, care-of wherever you are staying (no FFL is necessary).


Good luck.

Thanks very much, I can ship it right from work then. But what about the ammo. Should I put that right in the same box as the pistol? Who will know right.

Just buy some ammo when you get there. The extra cost to ship ammo (haz mat fees} aren't worth it.

If you ship a firearm via a common carrier (UPS, FedEX etc) to a non-licensee you are required to inform the shipper that the package contains a firearm. You are also required to send it "adult signature required." You cannot ship ammunition in the same package with the firearm. If you are shipping it to a FFL then no notice is required.

If you are shipping ammunition via a ground common carrier there are no haz-mat fees. The shipping container must be labeled "ORM-D - Cartridges, Small Arms." You cannot ship ammunition via the USPS.

UPS "stores" are not UPS and are prohibited from accepting firearms or ammunition for shipment. You must use a UPS counter or a daily pickup account at a gun store etc. The specific regulations are on the UPS website.

They don't.

However, if it gets lost, and we all know it happens, you will be SOL if it wasn't insured. In order to insure it, you have to claim what is in the box and it will be inspected.

Of course, I just want to make sure that they don't know what's in each box. I am so pissed right now, I don't know how the hell I'm going to get my pistol up to PA for my vaca next week. Has anyone ever heard of an airline not accepting firearms in their checked luggage? I've flown Delta and USAirways, and not one problem.

Legally - yes if you inform the shipper that it is a firearm and the ammunition is properly marked. UPS (by UPS policy) requires next day air service for handguns. The "informing/marking" requirements are Federal law and not UPS policy. The UPS driver might not accept the packages though.

Yes there are a number of airlines who refuse to allow firearms in checked baggage.

It is legal to mail (longguns only) or ship your firearms to yourself in another state.

This is addressed in the FAQ on BATF website.

Suppose I took the frame and slide off and send out two different packages. That would be just fine, right? I could also include a box of ammo in one of the boxes, since they don't contain a firearm technically.

Tell me about it. Im madder than a wet hornet. But anyway, I'll be breaking the gun into two parts, slide in one box, frame in another. I'll be including a box of ammo in the box with the slide. Yea, I know that the frame still constitutes a firearm, but I don't care. I'm sending it out from my UPS daily pick-up account at my store next day air. I'll do the same thing for sending it back. Fuck them all. Who the hell is going to know anyway.

Can you point to the federal law that specifically requires informing the carrier ??

I know that a dealer who ships regularly (at least through USPS) is required to have paperwork on file, and my interpretation of the postal regulations make me think that you are required to inform USPS(and I know some people on arfcom disagree with me on that one) - but I don't know of any federal law that states that a private citizen is required to inform the shipper when sending a firearm UPS or FedEx.


I was actually pretty sure of that - so I really want to KNOW if I am wrong. Thanks.

I don't have a link to it, but I've read it. It says if you use a common carrier (which UPS and FedEX are) you have to notify them. (And BTW you're still wrong about the post office thing. )

I'll take your word for it !


So I guess this means that dropping handguns in the FedEx drop box is a bad idea? It made what I interpreted to be an apporoving sound when the lid shut!

A gun/hunting writer I knew(just passed away) told me, when shipping a firearm to yourself or someone else install a metal shipping band around the container. That way you know the container will not come open and you will also know if someone has messed with it.

I know another friend that hunts up north(colorado to canada), he ships ups/fedex to himself care of the guide or friend he stays with. He has no problems and he seals his gun case with a steel band.

Airline refuses to transport trap shooter's gun

By Craig Smith
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Monday, March 22, 2004

James Mautino concedes that the idea of carrying a shotgun onto an airplane might sound a little crazy in the midst of a war on terrorism.

But that's how trap shooters get from tournament to tournament. And it's allowed by many air carriers serving the United States and some foreign countries.

Mautino, of North Huntingdon Township, planned to compete in a national trap shooting contest last week at the largest gun club in Odessa, Fla. He didn't expect any problem, because he'd flown with his $12,000 Perazzi combo shotgun to the Sunshine State two weeks before.

Mautino had planned to drive to Florida, but Old Man Winter reared his ugly head and the 61-year-old didn't like the idea of getting stranded in the snow. So he found an ad for Pittsburgh's newest discount airline and shelled out $232 for a round-trip ticket to Tampa.

"It was a last-minute deal, the answer to a problem," he said.

Mautino got up at 4 a.m. Tuesday, drove to Pittsburgh International Airport and made his way to the check-in counter at USA 3000 Airlines. "I told them who I was and that I had to check a firearm," he said.

He was told that the airline doesn't carry firearms.

"I said, 'Whoa, we've got a problem,'" Mautino said.

USA 3000 Airlines, owned and operated by Apple Vacations, will not transport shotguns or ammunition. The policy is not widely broadcast, but it is stated on the company's Web site.

The airline, based in Newtown Square, Delaware County, decided not to carry firearms as it focused on its primary business of transporting leisure travelers to sunny destinations, Spokesman Trevor Sadler said. The company, started more than two years ago with two planes, now has a fleet of 10.

"We made a conscious decision to not do that at this time," Sadler said, adding that the policy is under review. He couldn't say if or when it might change.

Eventually, a customer service representative at the company's headquarters promised Mautino a refund.

"I can't even imagine this policy for an airline that's trying to build something in Pennsylvania -- the sportsman state of the nation," he said.

The Amateur Trap shooting Association, or ATA, says Pennsylvania leads all other states when it comes to trap shooting. Some 7 million targets are shot in the Keystone State each year.

And the number of gun enthusiasts in Pennsylvania is growing. More than 100,000 are expected to attend the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Pittsburgh next month.

Mautino could have switched to another airline but the fare would have been nearly $1,200, he said, because he didn't book his flight in advance.

Other airlines do allow travelers to check sporting firearms. Gun owners who fly Continental Airlines, for instance, can check as "one" piece of baggage a rifle case with as many as two rifles, with or without scopes; 11 pounds of ammunition; and a shooting mat, noise suppressors and small weapon tools.

Midwest Airlines does not require any additional requirements beyond the federal government's guidelines for checking firearms, which include a signed declaration that the firearm in unloaded and stored in a hard-sided container.

"Here I sit; the competition is going on," Mautino said, adding that successful trap shooters can win $4,000 to $5,000 per event. As he spoke, the Perazzi sat, disassembled, in its hard-sided case nearby.

Officials at the ATA, based in Vandalia, Ohio, said they have not heard any complaints about USA 3000 Airlines and know of no other airline that bans firearms altogether.

A National Rifle Association spokesman said USA 3000's policy was brought to the NRA's attention by one other gun owner who was affected by it.

"Our position is, basically, as a private company they have the right to throw away business," said John Frazer, a federal lobbyist who follows the issue of gun transportation for the NRA.

The government revised the gun transport policy after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, but there was little impact on sporting weapons, he said.

Mautino came to trap shooting after stints in the movie and carmaking businesses. He worked at MGM in Culver City, Calif., from 1961 to 1970 as an optical technician doing special effects. He returned to Pennsylvania and worked for Volkswagen at its former plant near New Stanton.

He then launched Tri-State Trap & Skeet Co. in North Huntingdon, one of the largest trap shooting stores in the state, and ran it for 25 years before retiring.

"It's been a great life. I love it," Mautino said.

Trap shooting requires a high degree of precision, he explained. The $1,100 triggers on his guns are not "pulled." Instead, they are set before shooting and "let go."

"Letting go uses three muscles as opposed to 67," he said.

Because of stories like Mautino's, competitive trap shooter George Bush III, of Derry Township, stays away from discount airlines, said his mother, Cindy Bush. He hasn't had any problems transporting his gun on full-fare airlines, she said.

George Bush, 18, is attending Lindenwood University in Missouri on a shooting scholarship and flies to competitions throughout the United States from there. In one month's time, he's been to Louisiana, Texas, Florida and back to Texas.

"We know guys who have been stranded at airports," Cindy Bush said.

I think they lied to you. I've shipped with the UPS store around the corner many times, shipping both firearms and firearm parts. I've always listed the contents accurately too, and never had a problem.

The frame is still considered a firearm under the eyes of the law.

Never heard of this airline, and I fly 50 - 75K miles per year. You should stick to real airlines, like America West, Southwest, American, Delta, United, US Air, Northwest, etc., etc.. all of which have estabilished policies for firearms in checked luggage.

This regulation applies to a common/contract carrier and not the USPS. You are required to notify UPS, FedEx etc. when shipping a firearm to yourself or any unlicensed person. If you are shipping a firearm to a FFL you are not required to inform the common carrier.
