I obey all federal, state and municipal firearms laws regarding the shipment of firearms. According to the BATF and the 1968 Firearms Control Act, any firearm manufactured after January 1, 1898 is considered a modern firearm and must be transferred only to a Federal Firearms Licensee, so I can only ship to such an address. Guns manufactured prior to the above date are not considered firearms at all, rather they are classified as “antiques” and can be transferred without an FFL.
