    Hello:

    I think I remember reading somewhere that if you shipped FedEx you could used there 2 day shipping instead of next day air. Can someone please inform me if this is true.

    There are a bunch of ffl's in my area that will ship it for you at a flatrate fee btween $20-$35. May want to look into that, last long gun I shipped went fedex ground.

    Welllllll.... I don't want to scare you but there was a post here about a firearm being stolen through FedEx. I would always recommend selling a firearm FTF. Good luck.

    Plus one. FFL to FFL can go USPS and not have to deal with those outrageous Next Day fees. Another advantage is you know it will be done right and the receiver will not refuse delivery. And yet another advantage is you support your local gun shop.

    Just go to your local FedEx handling depot, find a convicted felon and turn the gun over to him to be sold on the street. Save yourself the time, hassle and money.

    That's absurd.
    Over the years I've shipped & had shipped to me literally hundreds of guns via Fedex. Not one single loss.

    How do you think the gunmakers get products to distributors & dealers? Mix of Fedex & UPS, they certainly don't deliver them personally.
    The volume of firearms in transit in brown trucks & white trucks every day in this country is very sizable. Some are stolen, but the percentage is extremely low and the odds are high in favor of a successful delivery.
