Transporting Weapons

Getting Your Weapon to Us

Even though Ron’s Guide Service offers free loaner weapons on our wild boar and alligator hunts, we understand the tradition of wanting to use Grandpa’s vintage shotgun or breaking in your favorite new rifle.

By Mail

You can ship your weapon to us in care of Ron’s Guide Service. We will keep it safe until you arrive for your hunt.

Your package should be addressed:

(Your name)
c/o Ron’s Guide Service
1921 Fulmar Terrace

Okeechobee, FL 34974

Please let us know if you will be shipping your weapon so we can keep an eye out for it.

Federal law does not restrict individuals from transporting legally acquired firearms across state lines for lawful purposes except those explicitly prohibited by federal law to include convicted felons; persons under indictment for felonies; adjudicated “mental defectives” or those who have been involuntarily committed to mental institutions; illegal drug users; illegal aliens and most non-immigrant aliens; dishonorably discharged veterans; those who have renounced their U.S. citizenship; fugitives from justice; persons convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence; and persons subject to certain domestic violence restraining orders. Therefore, no federal permit is required (or available) for the interstate transportation of firearms.

Many states and localities have laws governing the transportation of firearms. Travelers must be aware of these laws and comply with legal requirements in each jurisdiction. There is no uniform state transportation procedure for firearms. If in doubt, a traveler should carry firearms unloaded, locked in a case, and stored in an area (such as a trunk or attached toolbox) where they are inaccessible from a vehicle’s passenger compartment and not visible from outside the vehicle. Any ammunition should be stored in a separate locked container.
