I was wondering, do you have to ship guns through a ffl holder if you are just, say, trading guns between two individuals?

You can ship a gun for repairs and modification, but if your shipping to an individual you have to go through a FFL. Guns have to be shipped between FFL's. If this person was going to do some repair work for you it would be legal to send it to him, know what I mean. ;\)

Long guns can be shipped in state without having to use a FFL.

My error about shipping in-state, USPS will do it, but Fedex and UPS won't unless you are a FFL.

Here is exactly what the ATF 'Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide' (ATF P 5300.4) says:
(B9) May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by carrier?
A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by carrier to a resident of his or her own state.

I tried to make a legal shipment of a shotgun to another Tennessee resident. The “Security Officer” at the UPS hub in Murfreesboro rejected the shipment because I wasn’t an FFL holder. He tried to do it to me again when I was shipping a hand gun back to Smith & Wesson. He backed off when I told him that the overnight shipping label was sent to me from S&W.

None of them know the laws or even their own company policies when it comes to firearms. When I called UPS to complain the first person I talked to told me she was a 20 year old college and didn’t know anything about guns except that they scare her. The supervisor told me he would not over ride the decision of the clown errrr…. Security Officer” at the hub.

The Post Officer will do it (no hand guns) if you can pack it so that it can survive the central smashing station.

So it all depends on who is at the counter.
