best way to ship long guns to Ca???


In a box.

Hrm.. it's an interstate transfer, but CA law allows paperless transactions of longguns between direct family members (as long as the firearm isn't an assault weapon).

I would think that you can ship it directly to him, and if they're long guns you don't need to overnight it and USPS is a viable options. Get insurance and wrap them well.

On a related note, where the devil would one buy a nice long thin box about upper-receiver sized for shipping? Office Depot et al don't seem to have anything applicable.

Looks as if you will have to make your own.

I'm no expert on interstate transfers including CA, but from what I'm gleaning from the NRAILA info it seem that ALL firearms must be transfered through an FFL regardless of it being a family member or not.

www.nraila.org/GunLaws/StateLaws.aspx?ST=CA

The following may be the way around it...but like I said, I'm no expert.


The waiting period and dealer application do not apply to transfers to police officers, other gun dealers, manufacturers, or importers, antique firearms, and rifles and shotguns which are classified as curios or relics by the federal government, infrequent gifts or transfers to one`s "immediate family," an infrequent temporary loan not to exceed 30 days to a person who is not prohibited from possessing a firearm, and a transfer of a rifle or shotgun at auctions by nonprofit or public benefit corporations

thanks for the link. guess i may have to give em a call to verify the legalities.

It's an interstate transfer and Federal law does not exempt transfers between family members. To be legal, they have to be sent to a California dealer for transfer.

You know, that's so bloody obvious, I never thought of it. Plain as the nose on my face.

Brownells sells rifle shipping boxes. Fulton Armory will sell you one, too. They are not all that cheap.
