Aseras... I left you a voicemail. Gimme a call ok?

Everythings cleaned up and spit-shined, ready for tomorrow.

By the way, I may have an alternate buyer for the .45 if you change your mind. Just let me know ASAP so I can try to unload this thing...

300 yards with a pistol is highly unlikely, to say the least.

You have first alternate spot on the SKS right now... If it doesn't sell face to face by the end of this weekend, I'm going to try to deal with Zangmonkey for it. If that falls through it's yours.

I really don't want to turn this into a political debate thread, but that's one of the most assinine comments thus far in this thread.

If they did somehow manage to outlaw every type of gun in the US, and take every gun out of the hands of all of the citizens, I bet the odds would be closer to a 10% chance we'd be invaded by some opportunistic country.

Guns are a part of our heritage, our culture. Whether you like them or not, they're here to stay.

The .45 is gone... Aseras is the new happy owner.

Zangmonkey, assuming I don't get any more interest in the SKS by the end of the weekend, how do you want to handle payment? I need to have either a money order or some other form of payment that I can turn into cash before I ship it.

Also, I'll have to go into the post office personally and ask the details of how to do it from someone that works there.

This makes me nervous... I'd hate to walk in with it and get bumrushed.

Aseras did say that he would like to buy it in a few weeks, but if we can do it online sooner, we can look into it.

I can send payment via Western Union, where you should be able to go to a grocery store that hosts one within 2 minutes of my payment and cash out. However, there is a bit of a fee charged to me on that sort of cash transfer.
I could send you paypal, they charge a 2% fee to the receiver. Paypal is my prefferred method of payment.

There are guides on the web about how to ship it, but I supposed you could go into the PO *without the rifle* and ask the postmaster how to ship it.

Ok. I poked around Western Union's site and if you send me $313 it will cost $350 to do. Out of the $313 left, I'll cover shipping and whatever else I have to do to ship it.

I have a Western Union less than 2 minutes away from me.

I know this puts you taking all of the risks, but I can't think of a better way to do it so I know I get paid. Hopefully Aseras can vouch for me that I don't seem like a scam artist or anything.

If this arrangement is ok with you, and I still have it after this weekend, I'll go to the PO on lunch Monday and find out the details. I hate to keep putting you off, but the deals are so much easier in person. Thanks for being cool about it.

Look for a post or PM from me tomorrow night.

I'll totally vouch for OvrrDrive. We met up, bought some ammo and took the guns out the the range to for a test drive. I'd love to have both, but this is car payment/ mortgage/car insurance paycheck and I just don't have the liquid cash to do it. The SKS is in great shape, he also says he has the original stock and various other things for it. I didn't shoot it but it looks good. OvrrrDrive takes very nice care of his guns, he broke out his cleaning kit and cleaned the 457 up in record time and showed me how to break it down ( BTW I still can't get the damn thing apart )

What I'd suggest is a Postal money order, they are 90 cents up to 500. You get postal privledges, if whomever rips whomever off, it's federal mail fraud and generally the post office will refund your money within 60 days. Shipping is another thing.

http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#b1

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 firearm
However, this may be helpful.
Quote:
. A person may ship a firearm to himself or herself in care of another person in the state where he or she intends to hunt or engage in any other lawful activity. The package should be addressed to the owner. Persons other than the owner should not open the package and take possession of the firearm.

To ship through the USPS you would have to have your FFL ship to his FFL. You can ship via UPS or fed ex directly from you to his FFL, but they require overnight shipping. With the size and weight of the SKS expect to be at least $60 if not more. Also, you have to make sure that his FFL will take shipments from a non FFL as some are picky about that. It most likely will be cheaper to find an FFL that will ship for you and pay his fee and shipping costs through USPS. Gunbroker maintains a list of them willing to do transfers, so just look them up and ask their transfer price.

Actually, according to this: http://www.gunbroker.com/user/ShippingGuide.asp you have that a little off.

USPS I can ship to an individual in my state, or to a FFL holder in another.

UPS has to be from an FFL holder to an FFL holder.

I'm not sure of Fedx.

As for cost to ship, I don't think it weighs much more than 10 pounds or so, and with the folding stock it isn't really that big. I'm thinking with insurance, I should be able to ship it for $20 or so... Hopefully.
