    Shipping a handgun to California?

    I'm confused about the new law in California. If I want to ship a handgun to an FFL in the state, do I have to get a firearms shipment approval number from CADOJ before shipping or does the new law not apply to me as I don't hold an FFL?

    No, according to the CA Attorney General website, you do not.

    Frequently Asked Questions - California Firearms Licensee Check system (CFLC) - Bureau of Firearms - California Dept. of Justice - Office of the Attorney General

    Q: "I am not an FFL but I want to ship a firearm to a California FFL. Do I have to obtain a Firearms Shipment Approval number before shipping a firearm to California?

    A: No. The requirement to obtain a Firearms Shipment Approval number only applies to holders of valid FFLs."

    Yup. Just overnight it UPS or FedEx and that's it. An FFL like myself has to comply with the CFLC. I don't mind as I ship about 10-12 shipments to CA every week.
    07/02 FFL/SOT since 2006
