    I have question for the experts here on ODT. I have been told that you can legally ship a firearm from individual to individual in Georgia, USPS excluded, as long as both individuals are legal to own a firearm. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

    you can ship through usps within georgia. box cannot be marked in any way to indicate firearm. make sure you address to where they can sign for it - will not be left on door step.

    Yes, but most shippers want a FFL on the receiving end.

    Make certain that you pay for signature required , USPS will leave at a locked door without a thought.

    Or insure for high enough that signature is required I think $501 or more

    Thanks guys for the comments and suggestions. I would assume that you would need to exchange copies of a Georgia Carry Permit to verify that the parties are legal to own a firearm and not a felon.

    While the law says that you can ship a gun to an individual via UPS or FexEx, in reality you can't. Both those companies require an FFL on at least one side of the transaction.
