shipping guns on airplanes

Whats the rule. I was back in Illinois ans saw a rifle I wanted. And since I am not a citien of Ill I could not purchase the rifle and drive it back home with me. So a friend of mine is going to buy it and bring it back on the plane, if he can. I figure as long as its not loaded and in the checkin it should be alright correct. Let me know.

US Airways will allow passengers to transport firearms in accordance with Federal Law.

Items of shooting equipment will be accepted as checked baggage only.
A passenger who presents baggage containing a firearm must declare and demonstrate that the weapon is unloaded.
Firearms must be packed in a manufacturer’s hard–sided container specifically designed for the firearm, a locked hard–sided gun case, or a locked hard–sided piece of luggage. Handguns may be packed in a locked hard–sided gun case, and then packed inside an unlocked soft–sided piece of luggage. However, a Conditional Acceptance Tag must be used in this case.
Baggage containing firearms must be locked at all times and the key or lock combination retained by the passenger.
A Firearm Unloaded Declaration form (available only at the airport) must be signed and placed inside the bag or gun case.
Checked ammunition may not exceed 11 lbs/5 kg per person. Ammunition must be packed in the original manufacturing package or constructed of wood, fiber, plastic, or metal and provide separation for cartridges. Ammunition may be checked in the same piece of luggage as a firearm. No additional documentation is required.
There is no limit to the number of items contained in rifle, shotgun or pistol case, up to 50 lbs/23 kg, 62 in/157 cm in maximum.
A passenger who presents a firearm to be checked to an international destination must be in possession of all required import documentation for their international destination city and any international transit points. It is the responsibility of the passenger to acquire the required documentation from the applicable government entity prior to travel (usually a consulate or embassy). Firearms will not be accepted for transport if international import requirements have not been met.



Is that al thats to it. Just must be in a hard case with a lock?

I don't know the answer to your original question , but wanted to point out that you can ship the gun from one ffl to another . I think you can get the gun bought in your name if you use a dealer to broker the deal for you. And shipped ups LOL
I would think a local dealer would maybe do it for free -Its a good customer relations practice IMO.
Any way I thought I would offer it up incase you run into a dead end with the interstate air/gun travel thing.

That's the way I would do it as well, having a gun that's not registered to you might be trouble someday.

If someone buys a gun for you because your not legally allowed to purchase it that's a Federal Offense and referred to as a "Straw Deal." I honestly didn't read the entire post just the first and last sentence. Just looking out for ya. Otherwise I've flown numerous times with a gun. I declared it at the counter in the original hard case with a lock. Then the gun was placed inside my checked luggage with a firearm tag. Ammo must be in original box and not with the gun. I'm not sure why it's illegal for you to buy the gun but if it is that's where the straw deal comes into play. If it's just the shipping part buy it and ship ffl to ffl dealer. Or order it online or from your local dealer.

I know I can not speak for the current times, but when I was with the airlines and before 2001 all firearms were checked in as the rules read above. There was never any documentation required to place your name with the gun you are checking in.

When my father died in 2004 I was able to transport a M1 30cal carbine and 50 rounds from Boston to Minnesota when the firearm may have not been registered since 1945.
I think the main point is they just do not want the rifle in your hands when you board the aircraft.

Good luck

I can buy a gun. I also have a Colorado Concealed Weapons Permit. But Illinois you have to have a F.O.I.D. card to buy guns. Firearms ID card. I have one because I am from Ill but no need to carry it and I just saw the rifle and it was a good deal. But I decided to get it local here in Denver. It's 20 bucks more but no hassle and I can walk out with it the same day. In Ill you have a one day wait on rifles and shot guns and 3 days on hand guns. In Colorado it only about a 5 minute wait. But I learned alot about transporting guns on an airplane.
