Trying to figure out if AB962 bans an out of state acquaintance from shipping handgun ammo to a CA resident.

Part 2: Can you ship yourself handgun ammo (say you're on vacation and find a good deal)?

The law says (3) Commencing February 1, 2011, a vendor shall not sell or
otherwise transfer ownership of any handgun ammunition without, at
the time of delivery, legibly recording the following information:
(A) The date of the sale or other transaction.
(B) The purchaser's or transferee's driver's license or other
identification number and the state in which it was issued.
(C) The brand, type, and amount of ammunition sold or otherwise
transferred.
(D) The purchaser's or transferee's signature.
(E) The name of the salesperson who processed the sale or other
transaction.
(F) The right thumbprint of the purchaser or transferee on the
above form.
(G) The purchaser's or transferee's full residential address and
telephone number.
(H) The purchaser's or transferee's date of birth.
(4) Commencing February 1, 2011, the records required by this
section shall be maintained on the premises of the vendor for a
period of not less than five years from the date of the recorded
transfer.
In other words, it covers only sales/trades - gifts are not included.

It would be a Good Thing if you did not send your out of state friend a gift of $1000, and shorlty thereafter your friend sends you a gift of, say, 2 cases of .45 ACP.

If you're going to game the system, drive out of state and buy directly - that's legal.
