My poor Garand is sick so I am sending it off to a professional to get it checked out. Is it
possible to ship an owned rifle direct to a FFL for service or do I need to have a local FFL ship it?

You can ship to Gunsmith for repair or manufacturer for warrantee work without having to go thru an FFL. They can ship directly back to you.

Just remember to use either FedX or UPS cause us normal people can't use the USPS , just the FFL,s can . So I use UPS cause they are right down the road and it's easier ! Just trying to be helpful !

"Normal people" (read non licensees) can ship longguns via USPS.

May a nonlicensee ship a firearm through the U. S. Postal Service?
A nonlicensee may mail a shotgun or rifle to a resident of his or her own state or to a licensee in any state. Handguns are not mailable. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. A nonlicensee may not transfer any firearm to a nonlicensed resident of another state. The Postal Service recommends that longguns be sent by registered mail and that no marking of any kind which would indicate the nature of the contents be placed on the outside of any parcel containing firearms.[18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(3), 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A)]
