    Iíve shipped to Glock and North American Arms for upgrades. I used FedEx. It wasnít a big deal, just a little extra paperwork. One of the times I had to educate the person at the counter a little bit. After looking up the regulations in his manual he asked me if Glock was a licensed firearm dealer. I had a good laugh to myself about that one.

    If you can, find a local dealer that has the paper on file with the post office to be able to ship handguns by US mail.

    It's the cheapest route - you don't have to overnight them.

    Like JT, I used FedEx to ship my Kimber back, but had they had to get their regs book out...seems its been a somewhat recent change. The legal owner can in fact ship direct to the manufacturer. I think there was one page form I filled out with the serial number and stating that there was no live ammunition with the gun.

    Yea, you can ship to a manufacturer or a licensed dealer. I've been told by a couple of people that you can also ship to yourself, but I donít know if that is correct or not.
