    My brother wants to send me a mounted rifle which was presented to our father from his Officers while serving in Viet Nam. The gun is deact and beautifully mounted on wood with a plaque. Must this go through FFL agents if being shipped from VA to KS?
    Thank you in advance.

    My suggestion would be to give ATF a call and pose that question to those guys straight up. They may want to look at it to ensure their selves that it is indeed A deact
    firearm. Seems to me personally that it could be sent insured freight like FedEx or UPS.

    it seems to me that deactivated firearms are such a waste! i hope once you get it home that you'll be able to repair it and get it back in working order;)

    Don't call. Write. Not email. Real letter. Get a response back, in writing, on ATF letterhead.

    Any time you are worried that what you want to do might be illegal, and you check - get it in writing. "Agent Jones told me, over the phone, that it was okay" don't work too good in Federal court.
