Seems as though I have a similar situation, my dad has a sig p220 he is willing to give me, however I cannot find a single FFL in Florida that is willing to ship to California, they just wont deal with the state's regs. Would he able to fly out and do a face to face transfer? I'm not sure if the rules change in regard to a handgun transfer.
Is there a better way to do it? Noone seems to be willing to accept a shipment from him (being a non FFL) either.
@BlackBeard, please forgive my intrusion on your post, I tried to wait until it seemed like you had been able to wrap up.
