I want to have a gifted shotgun transported across state lines
July 27, 2014 9:04 PM Subscribe
My father is gifting me his shotgun. He and the gun are in Maryland. I am in New Mexico. Googling tells me that if he handed to me in person there would be no issues and no paperwork required. It also tells me that to be shipped interstate the gun can't be shipped to me directly but must be shipped to someone with an FFL. Apparently My father can ship it out even though he does not have an FFL but the recipient must be licensed.

1) is this correct?
2) if so, should I approach a gun store and ask them to receive the weapon on my behalf?
3) if 1 and 2, how much should I expect to pay the gun shop for this service?
4) if I'm going down the wrong path here, how should I have the gun sent from him to me?
We want the transfer to be as simple as possible on both ends.
