    You have to buy the rifle, and then ship it to an FFL in Oklahoma. When your cousing recieves it, that FFL will have to do the 4473 on it. You first need to find an FFL willing to do a transfer.

    Some FFL dealers might think you are doing a straw purchase. Just have your cousin purchase it directly, and have his FFL receive it. Other than paying a FFL to receive it in california, and paying him again to ship it out to Oklahoma, and having your cousin pay another FFL fee.
    FFL 07 / SOT 2. I run a small hobby shop that makes custom firearms, and high performance ammunition.

    Yep. The 10/22 is a relatively inexpensive gun when considering FFL transfer fees. Try this: print out a Ruger 10/22 product sheet off Ruger.com, write on it "Good for one (1) 10/22" and send it to him in the mail and wait for him to tell you the damage. Yeah, not as good as the real thing, but he'll appreciate it.

    I know. My wife did this for me when she couldn't find me a Browning Hi Power.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Thanks to all; I appreciate the replies, It sounds like it would be cheaper to fly to Oklahoma, take my cousin out to dinner--pay for it--and then go buy him a gun...
