    Ok I have conflicting information on this so I'm asking here. I'd rather take all your words for it than a bunch of guys in the same building who seem not to know what's what.

    So. I have a pistol in SA. I need it shipped back her, to me, in El Paso. I don't want to go through an FFL. My brother has it by the way. If it HAS to be an FFL, I'll just wait till he can bring it when he visits.

    So the question is, and this is my understanding: He can ship it TO me, via UPS, undeclared as to avoid prejudice, as long as it is in state lines, from his UPS to my house?

    I know undeclared is probably agains policy and to be honest I don't give a shit as long as I'm not breaking any laws.

    I've had two ATF persons tell me yes, and then no. I scoured the internet and it seems like yes. I've gone over all of the policy BS with a UPS employee who informed me it would have to be hud to hud, if declared as a pistol.

    As stated, I just don't want to break the law. Hell, I send batteries through USPS. Shoot me...

    Thanks for any and all information.

    Should be good.
    Sent a pistol to Armscor by FedX, just had to send it from a hub. They sent it back to me by FedX, to my door, I just had to sign for it. It is just personal property in Texas. As long as it is not logged into an FFL's A&D book anyway.

    To a dealer or gunsmith isn't the same as to an individual

    Your information is incorrect. What the OP describes is legal as long as he uses a contract carrier like UPS
