Yes, that goes both ways and is something we're often asked when crossing the border with the trailer. We do bring firewood in the US and declare it if asked, but it's all scraps from woodworking projects in my workshop. They've never asked to see it or had further questions when I tell them that.

Very true, as kiln drying any wood kills off any bugs, so many parks or places will accept woodshop scraps for firewood. Firewood okay, just not firearms.

Everyone is missing the irony that these guys were from TEXAS. Talk about STEREOTYPE!

I think this idea will only work with long guns. I know that a resident of one state cannot receive a handgun from a ffl in another state. If you buy a handgun you have to have it shipped to a ffl in your home state and prove residence when you do the transfer. You can go to Alaska and buy a long gun from a ffl, but not person to person. Not sure you can sell it though. Maybe to a ffl but certainly not a person to person sale. You can not go to Alaska and buy a handgun unless you are a resident of Alaska.

What I do not know is if there is any way to ship a handgun to yourself in another state and then go pick it up?? Or ship it to a third party non ffl and then pick it up? I doubt that you can do either though.

I winter in Fl and sometimes go to the gun shows. But the only way I can actually buy something is to buy a long gun from a ffl or buy a handgun from a ffl and have it transferred to a ffl in my home state who then can transfer it to me. I am not sure all states even allow the long gun purchase but I know many do.
Shipping and buying are two different things. But only someone with an FFL can ship a weapon from my understanding. You yourself can't place a gun in the mail.

I know there are services, at least this was my understanding. I haven't researched it extensively. But I do talk to enough full timers, and we all think, wouldn't that be nice. Just an idea for now.

I had to send my gun back to the factory for a recall fix. They sent me a FedEx label along with packaging instructions. A few weeks later it was returned the same way (fixed and all shiny clean).
