I have heard of folks shipping firearms to themselves in similar situations, but never bothered to learn the details of how to do it. I guess the big issue would be a destination address if you don't have friends or relatives that live there. You might research for an FFL at your destination that will help you out by receiving & holding it for you.

You will wait for a Port Authority officer to come and look over everything. He'll walk with you to take your bag to TSA. Then when you ask about all the extra steps your going though he'll tell you it's New York State. Then drop his mouth when you tell him about the dozens of times you've flown out of Buffalo and all they had you do was sign the card.

This was in April at LGA.

This is correct (if there is a separate TSA security screen area -- sometimes it just goes on a conveyor belt and disappears behind a wall). Follow the TSA rules and I suggest a steel gun case that tethers to your luggage's frame internally -- hard or soft. Airport workers tried to bang and pry mine open and steal my gun last time I flew through New York.

He can buy the handgun at his destination and have it shipped to his local FFL. His local FFL will do the background check or what ever is required by his state of residence. How do you think online purchases work?
