C&R Shipping Nightmare

Recommended Posts

Had C&R years ago never shipped anything. Had a very old Colt .25 for sale with free FFL toFFL shipping on my part. Had a guy wanting to pay full freight to CT because they have to be registered,said OK will work with you.  Research No C&R through USPS ,No C&R through Fedex,UPS C&R to C&R only if Station Mgr approves and rates start at $90 per pound plus ins.

C&R looks to be only good for out of State buyers FTF or a place like Century Arms shipping direct to you.

UPS accepts packages containing firearms (as defined by Title 18, Chapter 44, and Title 26, Chapter 53 of the United States Code) for transportation only (a) between licensed importers, licensed manufacturers, licensed dealers, and licensed collectors (as defined in Title 18, Chapter 44 of the United States Code), and government agencies and (b) where not otherwise prohibited by federal, state or local law (i) from an individual to a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector; and (ii) from a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to an individual.

If you have a C&R, you are a licensed collector. There are other requirements for handguns on shipping and packaging, like having to go by air. They are listed here for UPS…

Sorry, I thought you were saying you were a C&R holder also. FFL to FFL is about the only way you can go, its expensive. It will only get worse. If I'm selling something, or want to buy something thats not in production anymore; I'm pretty much limited to local sales FTF.

Thanks for UPS details. Example of price  UPS C&R to C&R 1lb package $80 +       FFL toFFL 2day Mail  20 dealer+20 USPS so$40 same package.  USPS C&R Fedex,DHL no way.  C&R is good for FTF out of State but that is it.

I've had a C&R for well over 20 years.  I've never had a problem shipping or receiving.  A C&R license IS a category of Federal Firearms License.  And FEDEX and UPS ship handguns 2nd Day Air at much lower cost than overnight.

Glad you have good luck with them. After an hour I got a UPS Supervisor to send regs to me C&R To C&R only.

main counter said to type 1 only.  FedX counter said no C&R  type one only and Memphis Supervisor told me same thing.

FedX Regs show collector shipping available. Half a day wasted and I know FFL to FFL will ship for a fourth the price. I will never try again.  The only reason I got involved was the person lived in a N E State that required it registered unless C&R

and I was trying to help him out.
