I made a few calls with respect to how do you get your stuff to the Nats if the airlines will not let check it. This has been told to me, but if you think you might do this, you need to make a few calls to verify.
The BATF regulatory agency has said that you are allowed to ship your firearm to YOURSELF. For example you may ship the package to YOURSELF at the FedEx office near the airport you will be flying into. You may then go to that office and pick up YOUR package.
If you think you may need to do this, I would start making calls and contact the BATF or the shipping agency and find out for yourself.
If I find out anymore, I will post it.
