I would like to know how to go about shipping a gun as a gift. It is an 84 year old box lock not worth much. I have a C&R license but the other end does not. It would be shipped from PA to Upstate N.Y. Could this be sent right to the individual or does it have to go to a dealer? Thanks

I am a C&R licensee as well. I am not an expert but it is my understanding that this would need to go through a regular FFL as it is across state lines. Not sure what the deal would be if it were in state.

Regards,

Texsss is correct. The C&R allows the holder to receive interstate shipments of qualified guns. Being the shipper doesn’t count for anything.

as i understand the federal laws, so long as it is not a commercial transaction, ffl transfer is not required...nys law may be another issue...

Absolutely wrong! And a way you can lose your right to own firearms.

The only exception to the requirement for an FFL transfer on the receiving end of a transaction is a lawful bequest or intestate succession - unless you're dead you can't transfer your modern guns across state lines without an FFL being involved.

Obviously, pre-1899 firearms and muzzle loaders may be transferred without an FFL on the receiving end unless a state law requires an FFL.

research reveals flychamps is correct...interstate shipment of gifted firearms requires federal background check by ffl...
