A co-worker of mine asked me about shipping her father's gun collection from Seattle WA. to Las Vegas, NV.
Appearently he recently passed away and wanted to have them.
I told her that I wasn't sure because I had never had the need to ship anything but I would get on the "All Knowing/All Telling" website known as DefensiveCarry.com, and I'm SURE someone could help her out.

So any info anyone may have would be great.
Thanks,
Roger

There is a specific Federal exemption in the law that makes Interstate transfer wrt Inheritance direct from Executor of an Estate to the new owner w/o any FFLs involved. Long guns can be shipped USPO, UPS or FedEx. Handguns by UPS or FedEx only. She'd also have to check NV law to make sure that such a transfer would be legal wrt NV law too.

As an FFL dealer, I can tell you that ALL FIREARMS transferred from one person to another regardless of circumstances, must be registered federally on BATFE Form 4473. This is primarily to insure that the person taking possession of the firearms is lawfully allowed to do so. There are also individual state requirements that are administrated through the state attorney general's office.

I don't believe that's completely true. Maybe in California it is, but here in the outlands we aren't breaking any laws by the private buying and selling of firearms within the State of Kentucky without a BATFE Form 4473. We do, however, have a responsibility to assure that the buyer is a Kentucky resident & that they are under no legal restriction to firearm ownership (felony, domestic violence, etc.).

Nice try. now back it up with a quote of the statute. Here, let me quote a statute to you, my friend:
18 USC 922 (a)(3):
US CODE: Title 18,922. Unlawful acts

(a) It shall be unlawful—
(3) for any person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to transport into or receive in the State where he resides (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, the State where it maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State, except that this paragraph (A) shall not preclude any person who lawfully acquires a firearm by bequest or intestate succession in a State other than his State of residence from transporting the firearm into or receiving it in that State, if it is lawful for such person to purchase or possess such firearm in that State, (B) shall not apply to the transportation or receipt of a firearm obtained in conformity with subsection (b)(3) of this section, and (C) shall not apply to the transportation of any firearm acquired in any State prior to the effective date of this chapter;
The requirement that you speak of MR. FFL, is only applicable in KALIFORNIA and not in the free United States.

To Roger79,
Unfortunately, even though allowed by law in this case, your co-worker will find that shipping firearms between two non-FFLs in different states is impossible because the shipping companies will not do it. Also, Federal law requires that you notify the shipper IN WRITING of a firearm shipment that goes between non-FFLs in different states. Shipping is basically a no go unless the firearms are shipped to an FFL in Nevada for transfer.

The easiest way to effect the transfer, legally, would be to go get the guns or have them delivered personally by driving them. Then, the handguns would have to be registered in Clark County. I think a resident of Clark County has 72 hours after receipt to register the handguns.
