A friend of mine inherited a shotgun in NY (his grandfather passed on), and he'd like to bring it back with him when he flies home. What're the laws for New York? I'm not sure which airport he's flying out of.

Don't fly with it, UPS it to your destination. Less chance of it getting lost (or stolen by baggage handlers getting paid minimum wage). Especially around the holidays and with the big snowstorms going on right now, lotís of bags getting lost.

If your flying out of nyc I know its illegal to travel in the city limits with a gun. People have been arrested at the airports checking in guns. But I don't know if that means handguns or all guns. When I left Connecticut I drove all the way to Newark to be sure.

He assured me he's not going to fly out of NYC.

I love it, guy asks for advice and then makes smart remarks when someone takes the time to try and help.

A real class act you are

My bad, I took it the wrong way. I read it while I was at work and in the middle of 4 things.

sorry bout that :D

In any case, is he the legal owner of the firearm already? If not, please disregard my advice of UPSing, as that would be illegal.

Yeah, I've talked to him more since posting this thread. Apparently the gun wasn't written to him in the will, so his grandmother is the legal owner. He's going to transfer it through Ade's.

Federal law allows you to transit through any state or municipality with firearms, regardless of state or local regulations.
