    Anyone have some helpful hints on doing an interstate firearm trade
    between Texas and California?
    No money changing hands.
    If shipped without ammo, can these simply be sent via carrier such as UPS or FEDEX, or do we have to use a FFL dealer to ship and/or receive?
    Thanks!

    check the stickies at the top of the "firearms" forum. They have a pretty long thread on a similar subject. There is alot of confusion and debate on this topic.I don't know about the laws within CA, but I'm pretty sure(in my opinion) you can ship some pistols via interstate travel as long as you abide by the carriers rules..ie.. their required shipping speed for a firearm. The firearm would have to be shipped to a licensed FFL, too. So, you could ship a firearm to someone else's FFL, and they could ship their pistol to your FFL. Can't ship directly to each other unless you're a licensed FFL. I don't know about Cali., though. There are some good links to the ATF rules in the stickies as well. Good Luck!

    No sweat! I actually have a personal letter from the ATF on this particular subject if you're interested. It's nice to have something like this when you want to sell or buy interstate and the other party thinks that all guns have to go from one FFL to another FFL.
