Transporting a Firearm
I want to get a black powder pistol from Florida to my Son in upstate New York. Is there a legal way to send it thru the mail, or maybe take it to a local gun shop and pay them to transport it? Maybe there is a better way. Help!

Black Powder are not firearms by Fed law and can be mail . The problem is the people in the shipping don't know the law in PO or UPS shippers . I had trouble mailing a pellet to NCG not long ago . I took to a different shipper and told them it was machined parts and shipped it . NY state has some funny law in different county's just make sure he can legally own one there . In the city of Philadelphia it is or was illegal to own or possess a BB gun in the city limits even in your house . Go talk to the postmaster in your town and see if you both are on the same page .

As TGR says, black powder guns (and also air guns) are not classified as "guns" by the Feds, so no need to mess with FFLs, but some states and municipalities have their own restrictions. New York, being New York, it wouldn't surprise me at all if there were state restrictions. I would call a gun shop up there that has experience shipping guns and ask a few questions.
