    Shipping firearms

    If you are flying to Sand Burr you may ship your weapons to us in advance. If you are bringing a rifle, this will save you the airline charge of $25 each way for the 2nd checked bag. It is also statistically safer to ship a long gun via overnight courier to us than it is to check a long gun case on an airline. Call or write us in advance. Ship your weapon to us prepaid and please get your tracking number from the freight company and check on the status of its delivery. We will charge you for cost of return freight plus a $50 handling fee for receipt and return services.
