I have explained this on several other "laws" on several other topics, but here it goes.
Laws are not descriptive. Laws are restrictive. You rarely find a law explaining what you can do, or how to do something. Laws tell you what you can not do. Therefore, if there is a law prohibiting me from mailing a firearm to another individual within my home state then I cannot, if there is not a law prohibiting it then it is legal. The BATF guidlelines do not prohibit individuals from transfering ownership from one person to another. How you get the firearm from one individual to the other is your choice.
Onetuza, its not required to use an FFL to ship one from Florida resident to Florida resident. No need to break it up. Now if you are shipping to out of state buyer it has to go through FFL, because you cannot sell to out of state without going through FFL in their state of residence. And its the reciever with the serial number that falls into that category. You can sell every part and ship it anywhere, except the reciever.
Clamper, I'll let you look it up for me. When I mail something or ship something, they ask "is it fragile or hazardous?" and I answer no. I do a lot of e-bay stuff and I have never told anyone what I am shipping. I figure its no one's business what's in the package. I have never been asked to disclose the exact contents of my package.
