View Full Version : Shipping Rifle & Shotgun Left in CA

12-23-2009, 12:50 PM
So I have read the Wiki, searched the forum, ATF FAQ and don't really see an answer.

My brother's friend just joined USMC and shipped out leaving his AR and Shotty in CA. Now wishes to have my brother ship the guns to him in Maryland.

Friend has no family in CA.

Issue as I see it:
While shipping to "self" for lawful purpose is allowed, it will be my brother's info on the shipping documents. Is this a "transfer" that could cause issues for brother under 922(e).

I suggested to tell friend tough luck. Anyone have experience with this? Worth an email to ATF for clarification?

Any thoughts on having the friend set up shipment from Camp Pendleton to current location?
