So the Ol lady dropped on me yesterday she wants to bring our 5 year old to Florida in the Spring-got me thinking--Can I go to a Cabelas or Gander Mountain or Walmart buy some ammo down there and wrap and box it up and go to a post office or ups store and ship to my address? in a plain old usps box you can buy at the post office..?? we are flying so bringing it thru airports is completely out..

You can ship UPS or FEDEX as long as it is marked ORMD. You cannot use the USPS

They say you cant buy ammo from a dealer and have it shipped to NY, but I dont see why you couldnt ship yourself something you already own...

There's nothing that says you can't buy out of state and ship to yourself. You just can't buy from a retailer and have it shipped directly to you.

If he buys ammo out-of-state in a face-to-face transaction, then heads to UPS to ship it to himself, he is not in violation. That is the beauty of interstate commerce. It would be no different if he went to PA to buy ammo in person, and then brought it across the border in his own vehicle. He is not committing a crime by doing such a thing.

I did a similar thing when I was Tennessee for a conference, but it only involved barbecue sauce. I had a carry on bag, and I did not want to check a bag, because it would be cheaper for me to ship it UPS. I put down the hotel address with my name as the sender, and then put my name and home address as the destination. Now, it may be different in the case that the package is ORMD.

Thanks Fella's for all the input-maybe we'll drive and fill an extra suitcase up-I can see a lot of people buying on vacation and shipping home to themselves-

I would not "ship" anything across state line. During prohibition would you order rum by mail?

We were all honest law abiding citizens one year and one week ago.
