If you purchase a rifle from an FFL (only legal way to do it if outside your home state) you CAN mail it to yourself- by US Mail. There is no transfer of ownership since you already own the rifle. Mailing a rifle or shotgun IS permitted under Federal law AND postal regs. (Chapter 14, Domestic Mail Manual, Restricted Mailings) HANDGUNS cannot be mailed except by an 01 Dealer or Manufacturer. Be SURE rifle is unloaded. You can also ship by UPS Ground.

If you are resident of CA, you may not buy firearm in any other state- CA law.

c3,
Do you know if a handgun can be shipped via UPS by a regular citizen or is shipping a handgun via UPS only allowed by an 01 dealer?

you can only mail a handgun, as i understand it, by common carrier such as UPS Fedex insured overnight to a ffl holder for repair or service and they can mail it back to you.

From the ATF website, but as stated don't know if NY has added to this:

Q: May a nonlicensee ship a firearm through the U.S. Postal Service?

A nonlicensee may not transfer a firearm to a non-licensed resident of another State. A nonlicensee may mail a shotgun or rifle to a resident of his or her own State or to a licensee in any State. The Postal Service recommends that long guns be sent by registered mail and that no marking of any kind which would indicate the nature of the contents be placed on the outside of any parcel containing firearms. Handguns are not mailable. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun.

[18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(3), 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A)]
Q: May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by common or contract carrier?

A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by a common or contract carrier to a resident of his or her own State or to a licensee in any State. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm and prohibits common or contract carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm.

[18 U.S.C. 922(a)(2)(A), 922(a) (3), 922(a)(5) and 922(e), 27 CFR 478.31 and 478.30]
Q: May a nonlicensee ship firearms interstate for his or her use in hunting or other lawful activity?

Yes. A person may ship a firearm to himself or herself in care of another person in the State where he or she intends to hunt or engage in any other lawful activity. The package should be addressed to the owner. Persons other than the owner should not open the package and take possession of the firearm.

A Ca resident can buy a firearm out of state but has to shipped to FFL in Ca for transfer.
