    Hey Bud, my FFL dealer has told me that it is legal to ship handguns from one person to another in state but you must use UPS, FedEx, and the like. No USPS.

    JC, ship it to me and if all goes well I'll send it on to your brother.

    BTW: it's not some crappy little .25 or .32, right? :p

    Is this coming from a place of not knowing, or is there proof to that? Everyone else says yes, so I just want to make sure you don't know something we're all missing. Either way, thanks for trying to help.

    Your brother has possession of the pistol. To transfer possession it must be done face to face in Texas.

    Sending it via common carrier is against the law.

    BTW, this topic has been discussed several times over at The High Road in the legal forum, a place where actual lawyers hang out.

    If that is the case, then I shipped my pistol to Armscor illegally and they shipped it back illegally. Not to mention that I told the Fedx folks it was a handgun and they did not care.

    Totally different situation.

    You were sending it in for repair. Armscor has a FFL.

    In the OPs case there is NO FFL. If it were a long gun there would be no problem.
