View Full Version : Shipping handguns within CA

Hey all,

So I live in the SF Bay area and I have been trying to get a hold of a Smith and Wesson 686 plus with a 6" barrel. I can't seem to find one in this area but I think I might be able to get one down in Orange County. (6 hours away)

What are the complications purchasing a gun from an FFL, within CA, but not face to face? Is this possible?

If anyone has a god link to some info on this, I would be grateful.

Yes, just have the FFL ship it to your FFL. When it gets to your FFL you will pay dros plus transfer fee, what ever it may be.

Remember if it's shipped to a FFL dealer, then it needs to be on the approved list.
