    Firearms Shipping

    I need a little advice and or some sound recommendations. I need to ship my Ruger Red Label Over/Under Shotgun back to the plant for some repairs. I am planning on using Fed Ex. If any of you good folks out there have done this before I would greatly appreciate any tips ya'll might have. Thanks for your time.

    If it's a warranty issue, Ruger should send a call tag for shipping.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Call Ruger beforehand and see if they will ship you a label.

    Make sure it is unloaded, and securely packaged, try to have nothing on the outside of the package that indicates the contents.

    Check with FedEx on their requirements. Long guns and handguns have different requirements.

    As others have said, if it's a warranty issue Ruger will pay for shipping.
    Handguns must ship next day air, but long guns can ship ground. I did return a rifle to Thompson Center for warranty work, no issues and great customer service. Only handgun I've shipped went to a gunsmith for a trigger job.

    Call Ruger, I bet they'll send you a pre-paid shipping label.

    Your choice, but be aware that you may send long guns via the US Postal Service.

    I guess you could...personally I've always chosen not to trust the United States gub'mit with my guns.

    You can by law ship them to the manufacturer . You can use US postal service with no problem.

    This sums up what I was going to say.

    Make sure you declare the package as a firearm and insure it.
