How do I get my firearms to another state?
Whether you’re moving or traveling, there are regulations to follow for transporting firearms. Laws tell you what you can and can’t do, but interpreting those laws into practical steps can be tricky. Since many moving companies (like U-Pack®) are not able to transport guns, you have to figure out what to do with them during a long distance move. And if you’re traveling to hunt, you have to take them with you. But how can you get firearms to another state? You have three options: driving, flying or shipping. All of these methods have their own rules and regulations, but transporting firearms can be easily done.
Note: Federal and state laws regarding firearms frequently change. These suggestions are not legal advice or summary of laws. Consult a local attorney or the written local laws to determine which laws apply to your specific situations. After arriving at your destination, state and local laws for ownership and possession will apply.
