Default FFL transfer from Cal to Texas

Im flying over from California to Texas and wanted to sell my ar15 to my brother who is a resident in Texas. I had him call some local texas gun stores before i flew over, they said they could not perform such a transfer from California. How would i proceed with this? is there anyway i can legally transfer a rifle from California to my brother in texas?

His local gun stores are apparently run by idiots. The way to proceed is to find a gun store that isn't run by idiots.

I would check with texas law. If you take the gun physically with you might be able to just hand it to him because he is a blood relative. I would confirm with ca doj on legality.

No.

CA resident to TX resident is an interstate transfer, Feds require FFL.

Heller was 2008. McDonald was 2010. Things started getting bad with GCA-1968.

Federal laws prohibits the transfer of firearms between residents of different states, unless the transfer is done through a FFL dealer in the recipient's state of residence.

There is no intra-familial gift/transfer exemption to the Federal laws.

Therefore...
Flying to TX and just handing the firearm to his brother, would be a Federal felony for giving it [18 USC 922(a)(5)] and a Federal felony for accepting it [18 USC 922(a)(3)].

Any FFL can receive a firearm from anyone, then they can do the transfer to the buyer/transferee. This means that either the TX FFLs don't know what they are talking about or there is some confusion.

What city are you going to?

Find a competent FFL in TX. Either the shops you called are run by morons or, you did not properly explain the situation.
