    I am selling a handgun to my sister who lives in Florida. I know it has to go through a FFL there. Does anyone know what it will cost me to ship it through Fedex.

    Fair chance hi $$. Take is there yourself or meet her at a dealer at the border.

    The one time I shipped a handgun it went through UPS and was classified as machine parts. It went to Ohio from S. Ga and cost me about $20.

    The last time I shipped a handgun in an interstate sale, it was cheaper for me to actually use an FFL on my end and the buyer also took possession through an FFL on his end .

    FFLs can send guns regular ground shipment via UPS or even the US Post Office (I think) which is low cost.

    Private parties sending handguns are forced (by company policy and their insurance restrictions) to go next day air. Expensive!

    For reference, I had to ship a handgun to Ruger, and FedEx wanted $80 for that. I happily bought a $30 pre-paid label from Ruger, instead.

    Licensees can use the USPS but not us lowly citizens who are forced to subsidize their crappy, inefficient operations.

    I use UPS. UPS Next Day Air Saver, 5 lbs and $500 declared value comes to $89.31.

    Thanks all. I figured it was going to be expensive, may just delivery it myself.

    Well I couldn't find where to ask. Moe, if you want to move it to a proper forum, be my guest.

    You would. But it would be a little peg into a big hole.
