I have a question. I've gone through these links and couldn't find this...
- If I have a service, warranty, or gunsmith need and send my gun to them, I can do this if complying with the rules outlined above.
- When they ship it back to me, since I already own it... would they ship it directly back to me, or would it still need to go through an FFL?
I'm curious. I've got a gun in with a local gunsmith, but if that doesn't work out, I'd need to send it off to someone that could nail the issue.
What the guy said above was correct. However, the hitch is this: if your gunsmith sends it in for warranty, they'll send it back through him and it may involve a fee. If you send it in, it goes back to your door. If you aren't worried about theft from your doorstep, the latter is usually preferable.
