Can an out-of-state (non-FFL) individual ship a gun to an CA FFL for transfer to a CA resident, or does the gun have to be shipped by an FFL holder?

In particular, my father lives on the East Coast and wants to send me a handgun. I know that an Intra-Family Transfer through an FFL is required, but can he ship the gun personally or does he need to have an FFL in his home state send it?

Thanks!

Depends if the FFL being shipped to will accept from an individual or not, so it varies.

Be sure to find an FFL in your area that understands gift/intrafamilial transfers from OOS and one that will accept from an individual. :) Congrats on the newest addition.

Riflegear in the OC is savvy to gift/IFT. Dad sent me a springfield XDm. They accepted the shipment directly from him.

FFL is a friend, so if he doesn't know how, I'll help him research on what to do. My concern is whether it is legal to receive from an out-of-state private party.

Thanks! Any suggestion for researching what an FFL needs to do to process out-of-state intra-familial transfers?

The FFL would need a letter documenting the sale, signed by the person giving it to you. It would need to be processed as exempt, perhaps marking it as either SB15 exempt (I think) or intrafamilial transfer.
