“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”
The next cheaper route is to have my local gun store (LGS) ship it for me, but if I do that he has to run it though his books and charge me for that service - say $50 total - and I then have to go to the LGS to pick it up instead of having it shipped to my house.
So, let me get this straight - you've never asked a gunsmith about providing you a shipping label, even though doing so might save you $50?
Lazy Wolf every day and twice on Sunday. The wait is long (very long - have other HK’s to shoot while you wait), but 100% worth it and Rick is very friendly and helpful, willing to discuss any questions you may have.
He used to be the main HK guy at GGI, and then he started his own business - so it sounds to me that the best and most experienced HK gunsmith is st LWG, not GGI. That said, you probably wouldn’t be disappointed by either vendor.
I know I’ll never be happy with a P30 again that hasn’t been blessed by Rick’s handiwork. The P30 starts out as a decent, workable duty pistol, and after his trigger work is a work of art. Much, much better reset and completely smooth. And yes, do the nickel-boron coating or whatever it’s called, definitely.

Correct. USPS regulations forbid anyone other than a "license holder" (read: FFL) from shipping a handgun to another "license holder" via their services.
Additional details from the ATF: https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/may-...postal-service
Thus, as you (customer) are the shipper, USPS will not allow you ship a handgun to yourself or to an FFL. It must be between FFLs. That is why the only labels you would ever see sent to you would be from a third-party "common carrier".
