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.
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.
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.
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 . 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.
