Most long guns are shipped via FedEx Ground. Those long guns that are less than 46" long, or that can be field stripped into sections not longer than 46", are shipped in foam-lined rifle hard cases. For long guns longer than 46", they are very carefully packed using a combination of bubble wrap, foam wedges and packing media.
Most handguns are shipped via the US Postal Service. For handguns that are no more than 12" long and 7" tall, they will be shipped in a foam-lined pistol hard case. For larger handguns, they are also very carefully packed using bubble wrap, foam and packing media.
All firearms are fully insured for shipment and all require an adult signature upon delivery.
