Who can I use to ship an antique pistol from TN-VA

I am not a hunter, but I want to ship an antique pistol from my home state of TN to my father in law in VA.

I thought about going to the local pawn shop, but don't know that I would trust them.

Q: Who would you use? or should I just ship it fedex? It is unloaded of course.

Thanks for any leads!

If the firearm was built in 1898..or before..It can be shipped UPS/FED EX/ Etc.....Directly from you to him....If it was built after that It must be shipped from a FFL Dealer..to a FFL dealer where he can pick it up. He will have to pass a NICS check to take possession ...
