Heading back to Texas for a weekend in late October. I'm wanting to ship my shotgun to myself while I am there. What is the easiest way to go about it?

Break it down stick it in a box and send it. Put a fragile sticker on it and tell them its fine china and insure it.

Fragile stickers don't matter, ship it via Ground with FedEx or UPS, I'd recommend shipping it inside of a hard case put inside of a large box with additional packaging....or just check it on the plane.

If shipping it to yourself, you can legally send it via USPS. I found that to be the cheapest way.

Just check it and bring it with you. I've done it several times.
