Say I put an AR in the EE, and it sells to Ben Dover. What is the legal way to ship it to him. Do I have to take it to my FFL and have them ship it to Ben's FFL, or can I ship it directly to Ben's FFL. And how the heck does a guy legally "mail" a firearm? I called the local sherriff, but he seems to be pretty busy, cause I've been waiting for a while. Any knowledge in this? Is it a state thing, or the same nationwide?(with the exception of CA and like staters, I know)

You put it in a box, take it to the post office, insure it for whatever it's worth and mail it to Ben Dover's FFL. If you and Ben Dover are in the same state, and the state allows private sale of firearms, you can mail it to him directly.

Yeah, but they ask if there is anything "potentially harmful" in the package. Do firearms not apply?

As long as it's not loaded, it's not more harmful than a baseball bat.

A non-FFL can not ship a handgun via USPS. You'll have to use FedEx or UPS if it's a handgun.
