Question: Is It Legal To Ship Ammunition?

Written by , Posted in Statutory Law


The shipment of ammunition is a delicate topic and one should always look at the applicable laws where they live and the jurisdiction where they are shipping to. In addition, pay special attention as to if a person needs to be an ‘authorized retailer’ in order to ship ammunition. If you are shipping the ammunition to yourself, you will need to consult with the individual shippers. UPS does ship ammunition and require specialized labeling and transport. You can not ship ammunition via the United States Postal Service (USPS) as the agency has a complete restriction on the shipment of all firearms (including ammunition).
