    Yup... The shipping is a killer. I recently shipped a handgun out of state for service. Would have cost me $80-$90 using FedEx or UPS. Instead I went to a somewhat local FFL (25 minute drive one way) and they shipped for $40 (plus $20 for $1000 insurance). I also had to pay $60 for the return shipping. So my $180 service cost me $300.

    Shop around...not all FFLs charge the same.
