My question is, is it somehow possible to fill out all the DROS/4473/etc paperwork, and then send it to my FFL, and then after the 10 days, go pick up the firearms?

The FFL would need to see you IN PERSON, with proper identifications, before he can enter your info into his DROS system.

BTW, where do u live??

PS. it is all depends how BAD you want an OLL..... I remembered.... sometime back in 2005.... some of us drove 8hrs+ one way..... from SF to Riversider to DROS OLLs @ BSP when we only supposed to have only "2 WEEKS" left.... (so.... do your homework, ie. call up EVERY FFL list on gunbroker, or suck it up... and DRIVE!!)

PPS. I remembered those days, I had called up probably 50+ dealers all over the country to try to find one who has stripped Stags in stock and is willing to send them into CA!!

PPPS. hey.... anyone remember who started the famous "2 weeks!!" quote??
