While it is a bit annoying to have to get a CFLC letter in order for a FFL to
ship a firearm to a CA dealer,
it is free and fairly quick to get setup and generate the letter.
It should take you no more than 5 minutes and then you can start annoying the
anti-gun people in CA by shipping firearms to CA Dealers.
you know that the CA dealer has all the required permits and licenses.
