i received ammo numerous times by ups and i never have to sign . iam always here so i don't know if ups will leave it on porch . the driver enters the information on when and to whom he delivered it to on a hand held computer . the seller can check on his computer from ups if the item has been delivered . on mine it [said man at house accepted item.],and had the exact time .

Per the law, yes, as long as you can prove that you are a VA resident.
A DL is sufficient.

(Here comes the big but...)

BUT, not all gun and ammo dealers are completely conversant in the
details of the law and most, just because they do not know any better,
will not sell you ammo unless you can provide a FOID card. That whole
better safe than sorry mentality.

Now you do not have to be an IL resident to get a FOID card. I have a
friend who lives in Iowa but still has farm property (old family land) in
southern IL. He has a FOID just to save any hassles when he is down
state hunting. You do not have to own land. Anyone can get a FOID.
They cost $10 and are good for 10 years. They have existed since
1968 and were used much like the NICS system is today before
computers made data so accessible. Really they are just an artifact
of old technology.

Just like when I buy lead at gander mountain they make me show my
FOID. A foid is not required for purchasing components. Some days I
make them get the manager and have him show me the place in the law
that states that I have to have a foid for purchasing shot.

Nobody has found it yet.

You are the most interesting man in the world. You've used explosives to join metal and you say nothing all that great. Cracks me up. I wish I had half of your knowledge.

One of my grandfathers was a blackmith. Have watched Granpa Charlie weld steel with a forge, hammer and anvil, and a pinch of borax. He would get the pieces white hot, sprinkle a pinch of borax on the joint for flux, and weld it with three blows of a hammer. Now, THAT impressed me!

Thanks for all the info c3shooter. I don't have a need to ship ammo on any kind of a regular basis, but there have been a couple of times I wished I could. Will be nice to be able to do it in the future.

I've found out that some ammo sites require a copy of your driver's license or other photo ID before they'll sell to you. Others that don't. I do business with the ones that don't. As far as I'm concerned, the requirement of an adult signature is their protection. Those that require an ID may not ask for adult signature (cheaper freight cost). I don't want UPS dropping off ammo on my doorstep when I'm gone.
