Default How much cost to use a FFL to send a handgun out of state?

First time planning to ship a handgun out of state for some custom work. The quote I got from FedEx is 40 something close to 50 bucks. So I wonder if there's any cheaper options to ship a handgun? I heard UPS is not good for shipping firearms. How about the post office? Anyone had good experience there, any idea on costs? What about using a FFL? Anyone has a recommendation on a FFL in East or South Bay for shipping a handgun? Really would appreciate examples of how much a FFL charges.

Unfortunately It's illegal to ship handguns via the post office, only long guns for some reason.

That price seems really high though! I know it didn't cost much for someone to ship a pistol Fedex to here from Utah.

Setter arms is a good shop in Walnut Creek to ask.
