Buyers must make arrangements through a third-party shipper to have lots shipped. There is a shipper (Global Pack Ship) that has an office in the Bonhams Skinner building that does a lot of the firearms shipping. The BB guns do not require any special handling but the VL rifles and other rifles must be shipped to a Firearms dealer in the state in which the buyer lives. This is in accordance per federal law.

You can contact Christopher Fox at Bonhams Skinner directly for questions regarding shipping and he can let you know what to do. Email: christopher.fox@BonhamsSkinner.com
