Default Intra-Familial Firearm Transaction letter??

My father lives out of state and he is going to gift me a old revolver he has.
My understanding is I have to find a FFL that would except a shipment from him. I was told the firearm has to be shipped with a copy of his drivers license AND letter stating he is giving it to me as a gift. My question is does anyone have a sample letter they have sent that was excepted?? I just do not want to miss anything in the letter.
THANKS

It is a gift! My father lives in AZ, and he is a generous father. He wrote a letter, and their needs to be a reason, belated birthday present, or passing down the firearm to a younger generation in the family, or something. Also, get the letter notarized. Some say you donít have to, but both my local ffl and the one in Arizona, both communicated with each other and insisted it would be a good idea.
It worked for me, if you have any questions, you can PM me.

Have your father write your full name and address in the letter.

One local FFL accepts this:

Date:

I, ________, am gifting one Sig Sauer P365 (Serial # ______) to my son, ________ (name/address).

Signed,

Name________
Address_______

Plus a copy--front AND back--of his DL.

I would contact your FFL and make sure this will suffice for them.
