View Full Version : CA law on shipping C&R handgun to FFL

Hi, guys -

I realize I should know the answer to this already, but...

What is the law on shipping a C&R handgun to a FFL within the state? He's going to re-sell it, obviously, but I don't think that factors into this.

You can ship any handgun to a CA FFL (hell, most any FFL where that's legal in their state).

You do not need to originate the shipment at a local FFL.

You cannot mail a handgun via USPS (unless you are an FFL) - you need FedEx, UPS, etc.

[Note: this assumes the handgun in question is not a CA-defined 'assault weapon'.]
