    Your post doesn't provide too many details so if my assumptions are incorrect, I apologize...

    What shipping a handgun it is not necessary to have an FFL holder at the sender's end. It is only necessary that the handgun be sent to an FFL holder via a common courier (e.g., FedEx, UPS and NOT US Mail).

    From time to time I see threads in handgun sale forums where people incorrectly state that the seller of a handgun has to have an FFL holder send the weapon. If this is not your situation, I apologize.

    I believe this to only be true if you are sending it UPS or FedEx overnight. USPS only will do FFL - FFL. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    He's probably looking for help so he can avoid the horrifically high costs of shipping a gun FedEx or UPS. They will only ship overnight and it runs about $50.00. He could ship it USPS for $10, pay the FFL a $10 fee and still come out $30 ahead.

    Aye, somebody was interested, but I calculated shipping was $55 for a 5 lb package going overnight saver UPS.

    USPS would be less than $20 but will require FFL.

    So if anybody uses an FFL to ship stuff all the time, I could ask for help.
