Being a resident of TX, can I ship a long gun directly to a CA FFL?

From what I have read, its a go, just want to be sure.

Yes, but call first. If the gun you're sending has features that make it an "assault weapon" under California law, some FFLs can't or won't want to deal with it. Getting a mystery AW in the mail pisses them off.

You don't need an FFL on your end, but you will need a copy of your Driver Lic. in the package. I done it once.

This is legal to do, but the receiving FFL have to know about. I have meet a lot FFLs who don't know all the laws, or they are not sure about them, so they just don't want to do anything outside the norm.

Sometimes the FFL Just Does Business That Way (wants shipments from FFLs, not individuals); as already noted, no legal requirement to do it that way.
