If the sister is shipping the firearm to a CA FFL, the father would do a 4473 and DROS, wait ten days, and pick up the firearm. There is no specific time limit on when the father can then gift the firearm to his son. Theoretically, he could bring the firearm home, give it to his son, and the son would then have to fill out the Operation of Law / Intrafamilial Handgun Transfer form and mail it to DOJ with the $19 fee.
