View Full Version : Shipping a BP pistol to Alaska from the lower 48?

Has anyone got experience in this? I've never shipped except modern weapons through an FFL. Anything special I need to do for this?

I bought a BP pistol from Midway a couple of years ago and it came in a box with the rest of reloading stuff, and the big brown truck left it on my front porch. I think some states treat BP guns just like regular firearms, but Florida doesn't. You could probably check with UPS.

Unless your state has special rules, the feds treat a BP gun like a hammer or crescent
wrench. I took a BP pistol to a friend overseas and no paperwork taking it out of or into
the other country.
