    Moving guns and ammo (the real thing, not the magazine)

    Well, it looks like our place is Riverhead might be sold. Which means a bunch of our "stuff" has to be moved cross country to our "real" home in Washington state. Spoke with one mover today (United Van Lines guy) and he said guns can go on the truck (boxed) but ammo: NO.

    Anyone have any experience moving ammo interstate? Damn, but it's heavy, don't think I can shoot it all before we move; might want to sell some and I guess I better do an inventory to see what I got (I know I won't be selling any of the Swiss GP11 as that's become hard to find and a lot more expensive). Same with gunpowder...there a couple of pounds that's gotta go west to WA.

    We're thinking about driving the car...but I can just see the traffic stop now.....you have how many cases of bullets in your trunk...not to mention wear and tear on the springs and shocks.

      I'd say sell off common stuffs easily replaced, then see where you're at quanity and weight wise.. Most ammo is available now, so starting again shouldn't be that hard.

          FOPA rules apply to guns and ammo. Locked containers. Put the ammo in your car or ship it to your address if you want.

            I would never give my guns to a moving company. I would either ship them to myself or drive cross country with them.

            How much ammo is there? If you don't have a lot, a few boxes spread out amongst different moving boxes would be unnoticeable

              Check with Get Moving USA and Allied Van lines. The first is Suffolk based and 2nd Amendment friendly. The latter is NRA endorsed.

                You could ship it to yourself but its going to cost you some coin. Ammo is heavy and there is only so much you can fit in the flat rate boxex

                    Take the guns and ammo yourself, you will thank yourself for it.

                      I'm moving next month and am transporting the guns and ammo myself. I will hire a couple of day laborers though to get it out of my basement as there must be two tons worth.
