I have used both FedEx and UPS.

Long guns can be shipped ground.

If you take it to them, you MUST take it to a hub, not one of the stores. The stores are mostly franchises and will not accept firearms or ammunition. They hubs will.

You can also schedule a pick from your residence.

You may not ship handguns via USPS, and an FFL can ship FFL to FFL. For UPS and FedEx, handguns must go Next Day, and that is quite expensive. So having your FFL ship it USPS may be cheaper than shipping it yourself.

Bud's used to have a service, where they would generate the USPS label and it would "ship from FFL to FFL" even though it was picked up from your house.

I use all three major carriers and I have not had any problems. Most of my outgoing shipments are Fed Ex. The PO can cost more, but for some items they are cheaper than the commercial carriers. I have a friend who is a C&R licensee and he ships most of his pistols through the post office.
He had best not get caught. You have to be a dealer (01 or better) to ship handguns through the mail. 03 C@R are not permitted by law to ship a handgun through USPS. I have an 01 now and have had an 03 in the past. Believe me, that info is correct.

Not supposed to be allowed, but I did receive two C&R pistols from a FFL 01 that is no longer in business.

I buy and sell a lot of things on eBay and the USPS for the past 8-10 months they are all over the map: good to slow to very slow to they actually lost an item (never had that before). I have never seen it so bad in 20 years. Almost pot luck with them. I used UPS to ship a rifle last month
