    You are confusing USPS with contract carriers. It is not illegal to UPS or FedEx a firearm to another Texas resident. The transfer does not have to be "face to face"

    This is not correct. The CFR states that the carrier must be notified when you're shipping a firearm in interstate or foreign commerce. Sending a gun, which you already own (not commerce) and inside state lines is not interstate commerce.


    ยง 478.31 Delivery by common or contract carrier.
    (a) No person shall knowingly deliver or cause to be delivered to any common or contract carrier for transportation or shipment in interstate or foreign commerce to any person other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector, any package or other container in which there is any firearm or ammunition without written notice to the carrier that such firearm or ammunition is being transported or shipped: Provided, That any passenger who owns or legally possesses a firearm or ammunition being transported aboard any common or contract carrier for movement with the passenger in interstate or foreign commerce may deliver said firearm or ammunition into the custody of the pilot, captain, conductor or operator of such common or contract carrier for the duration of that trip without violating any provision of this part.

    Bottom line: take the handgun to UPS and tell them it's a box of end mills or some shit. End of story.
