... and cannot fly back with it (flying into NYC).
Actually you CAN fly back with it unless they've changed things recently (after the recent airport shooting in checked baggage return area).TSA/Airlines, unless they've change things only check for firearms when you arrive at the airport to depart, NOT when you arrive at your destination via plane. Many have flown through NYC airports without issue following airline and TSA guidelines for transporting firearms. Where people have gotten screwed in NYC airports was picking up the handgun from checked baggage return, staying in NY (or NJ), then departing a NY airport with that handgun. That is a no, no and violates FOPA anyway since NY doesn't honor any other state's pistol permits.
fedex or ups to yourself, usually overnight only. check the fedex/ups policies because federal law also says you are obligated to tell them you are shipping a firearm. you also can't use the post office.You are not allowed to view links.

I called a Fedex and UPS in the area that I will be in, and they both said that you cannot ship person to person. UPS said it has to go from an FFL to another FFL, and she offered to give me a guy's info that could help.I explained that I am shipping to myself, they did not seem to see the difference.
they are wrong. No other way to say it they don't know what they are talking about. You can go to ATFs website and look at their frequently asked questions and see it there. You are not allowed to view links.
