    Some time back I had a shipper who shipped directly to me instead of to the FFL that I requested he ship to. It got sorted out on my end. I am 99% certain he did it intentionally as he also didn't ship everything he was supposed to then quit taking calls and ignored all attempts to contact him.

    I've shipped a pistol back and forth between a manufacturer for warranty repairs via UPS and I declared the box contained "machine parts".

    It's an internal combustion engine with an uncontained piston.

    I wouldn't put "STEAL ME" on the box.

    No repercussions for an FFL that mistakenly sends a firearm to the wrong address? Not that I think that their should be or will be, but I could see that being kind of a problem for an FFL.
    An FFL shipping to a non-FFL will result in a missed or falsified entry in their 4473, which may or may not be caught by their IOI at their next regular inspection. Depending on your region, you might only get inspected every five or six years.

    If caught, it'll generate a report, and if severe enough, or blatant enough could result in suspension or revocation of their FFL, and possibly even fines or criminal charges at the discretion of the US Atty for the region.

    That is, if the dealer's even still in business by the time the next inspection comes around.

    Libs are always saying you can have weapons of war sent right to your doorstep.

    No kidding. I've heard that repeated by lefties for years. I must be doing it wrong.
