    I need to send back my 870 for a repair. I was told I could send it through UPS and then could then have it shipped back to me (not an FFL,) because it's not a "transfer."

    This sounds too easy. Has anyone gone through the process? Any problems getting UPS to accept it? Did you return through an FFL?

    It's in NJ.
    I can't imagine Mr. UPS showing up at my doorstep and saying, "here's your gun, sir!"

    How do I prove that I owned it before, and it's not a new transfer?

    I'm inclined to go through FFL just to be safe.

    I'm not using US mail, because if some overzealous prosecutor decides to invent a law to go after me, I've now committed his imaginary crime on federal property with a federal agency. Aren't there no gun signs in the post office? I've never read the fine print, so maybe there's an exception for properly boxed, unloaded guns.

    I'm not taking my chances.

    And yes, I am paranoid. You'd be crazy not to be in this state and time.

    what do you mean, only way to ship a rm? I was specifically instructed to use UPS, and they sent me a UPS mailing label.

    Did you have any guns sent back to your home?

    UPS won't let me ship USPS, and UPS may not let me ship at all.

    Someone, get me out of this state, please.

    I'll give you my wife's phone number. Email/call/fax her now! Let her know how you feel about her keeping me in this state!
