Default How to transfer inherited firearms from Arkansas?

I've got a good friend who's dad lives in Arkansas, and he's really not doing too well.

If and when he passes, my friend is to inherit all of his guns (I don't know how many, but she says there are several.)

She's going to be the executor of the will, and seems to have everything under control, except she doesn't know how to go about bringing the guns to NV?

Does she need to ship them through an FFL, or can she just UPS them to herself? I don't think she's willing to drive to Arkansas & back just for the guns.

Anyone have any advice?

Nearest thing I can find on the ATF website:

http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#b8

I would say that simply owning the guns would be considered a "lawful activity".

That said, I would have her call the ATF and make sure that that is covered.

Estate transfers are exempt from the GCA of 1968 providing there is no State law prohibiting it at either end. She can go get them or have them shipped to herself. I'd keep a copy of the will or probate case number around just in case.

Here's the link to UPS's Shipping Firearms page......while it can be done doesn't look like it will be 'easy'......Might be easier to fly back and bring them back in checked luggage.......

You are allowed to ship a shotgun or rifle to yourself for the purposes of hunting. It doesn't say anything about a pistol? So she should just drive out and pick them up once she get ownership.

http://www.nraila.org/federalfirearms.htm#Sec. 926A
Sec. 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms
Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle:Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

Handguns have to go FedEx or UPS next day provided there's no local laws prohibiting firearm shipments from non-FFLs at the originating or destination address.

Yes and private businesses have the right to impose any restrictions they wish.

USPS will only accept long guns for shipment.

When i moved from Massachusetts I loaded my safe and most of my belongings in a POD they picked up the whole thing and shipped it to my door in NV. Upon getting the POD unloaded I brought all my pistols to Metro and got blue card on them, no problems, no hassles...
