Does anyone know if an air pistol can be shipped to Hawaii using USPS? I checked their site but could not find any info on it. Thanks in advance.

It is my understanding

that you cannot ship any pistols using USPS. Could be wrong but worth checking out. If for any reason it's xrayed....

From my understanding...

...you can't ship a pistol through the USPS only rifles. With that being said I have shipped AND received air pistols in the mail with no problems but that doesn't mean that it is legal lol.

No.... but.

USPS does not allow pistols of any kind to be shipped, Air pistol, flare pistol, starter pistol ect...
But I sent a 1377 to Hawaii and a CP88 to California last year using USPS. I've read of many people doing this with no problems. But I'm not suggesting that you try it. I gambled and won the roll of the dice, twice.

USPS air handguns

The Ucalled and SPS employee in Oregon said yes, then asked a supervisor with a phone call, and they said no, but said what they did not know would not hurt you. The regulations if you read them say no.

I have, like most of you recieved them in the mail, but it is easier to have FEDEX do it, they will and it is okay with them.

What if something happens to it enroute, or it gets exrayed, just not worth it for my peace of mind.

No pistols in the mail ...

postal regs are pretty clear, if it's a pistol it cannot ship by mail even if it's an air pistol. PO does not distinguish between firearms and airguns where pistols are concerned. Air rifles are OK.

Federal Laws

Since your dealing with the USPS and it's a federal agency and policed by the Postal Inspectors a federal police force I sure wouldn't send an air pistol. I think they could make your life a nightmare if caught.

Probley sick the ATF on you.

Thanks for all the responses. I am not a gambling...

man...therefore I will abide by the rules as they are written. It is a Crosman pistol that I am looking to ship, therefore I could separate the gripframe and trigger and send two separate packages as spares. UPS wants approximately $70.00 to ship this pistol to Hawaii sad.gif. I will have to figure out the cost of two USPS packages to see if it is worth it. I am almost certain that it will be a lot cheaper.
