FFL shipping question

I need to ship a gun to a shop in a different state so I know I have to use an FFL to send it to their FFL. I want it there next week when they open up after Christmas but don't have a copy of their FFL and haven't been able to get in touch with them.

If I'm able to find someone who does have a copy of their FFL, can I legally send it to them without them knowing it's coming?

Re: FFL shipping question

Is it a sale or shipping to them to have work done?

If it's not a transfer you can send it to them for repair with no problems. I wouldn't send anything without signiture required though and that would meen they need to be open. So I guess you can send it but do you really just want it to show up with them not there or expecting it?

Thanks LL. It would arrive on the day they open and by then I'll be able to talk with them. I was under the impression that to ship firearms, even for work to be performed and not a transfer, that it had to be via FFL's. Thank you.

The receiving FFL may require that it comes from another FFL, but it is not per regulation.

But, since you're sending it in for work, it's generally understood that it will be coming directly from you and not from another FFL.

Thanks GearGrinder, it's coming straight from the manufacturer hence the coming from a FFL.
