Found it.

From the ATF FAQ page. http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#b8

(B8) May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by common or contract carrier? [Back]


A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by a common or contract carrier to a resident of his or her own State or to a licensee in any State. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm and prohibits common or contract carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm.

[18 U.S.C. 922(a)(2)(A), 922(a) (3), 922(a)(5) and 922(e), 27 CFR 478.31 and 478.30]

Wouldn't it be more pleasant to do a long weekend in SA with the wife or gf or both in a really nice hotel and FTF the pistol to your buddy?

My wife and I do that a lot, trips to get beads and jewelry supplies in Austin, nuke classes in SA, outlet malls in San Marcos, etc....
