Long story short: Were looking to move to Fla. I own a Glock 21 that I plan to keep. Can I transport it with my stuff?? How do I get it registered in the state I move to??

Federal law states that you can travel with your firearm unloaded and locked in the trunk in any of the states. HOWEVER, some states Just Don't Care abbout federal law, and will arrest you anyway if they find it or if you disclose it. If you avoid New York City, New Jersey, and Washington DC though, you should be just fine.

Registration is not required in most states, including Florida. Just own it, have fun, and be safe.

1) Lock gun in trunk, or in back of moving van

2) do not get stopped

3) if you do get stopped, don't mention the gun, just act like it's a normal moving infraction (if for some reason they want to search your truck, tell them about the gun)

4) arrive and live in FL.

Jamz /thread.

What ever you do it is imperative that you avoid travelling through Washington, D.C. with a firearm or ammunition. Get caught their and you will be looking at a long stay over...unless you're a congressman.

When I moved I packed all of my guns in their cases the back most trunk area of the STi first and placed _everything_ else on top of them. That way if I got stopped a cop would have to remove my entire trunks contents or the back seat from inside to even see them. I'd shipped the ammo with the furniture in the PODS unit even as that is against their policy. But I had like 1K rounds of ammo at that time and putting all that in a car would be very heavy and it was packed to max as it was.

Another option is to ship them to your self via UPS in parts such as the barrels in one box, the recievrs in another, etc.

But only if you are traveling through the jurisdiction and it is legal for you to posses the firearm at your destination.
You can't just drive around in DC with a gun locked in your trunk because you feel like it.
He is going to FL where as long as he isn't a felon or othewise prohibited from possesing a firearm he should be prefectly legal under the federal law.

Recievers require an FFL to legally ship. Otherwise everything else is fine.

Ship it to himself, and do not declare to UPS that the contents inside are firearms parts. He'd be fine and legal.
Even if it were an entire assembly shipping it to himself would be a-okay. I did just this with my Sig to and from Sigarms and back for repair. This is normal. Indicate on the shipping documents that it's pickup only.
Shipping a whole gun though to some person other than himself would though require FFL involvement because then it would be a transfer of ownership.

Ah, cool, I didn't know the specifics. That'll be good to know if I have to ship my XD whenever I get it back to Springfield for service or warranty.

Just be sure to not indicate in the comments field or if you insure it to declare; "This is a Sig/Glock/XD/???".
Reason being for concern of theft and your 'ish coming up missing.
