Am I correct in assuming a longarm sold to a fellow citizen of my state(Va.)may be mailed USPS directly to the buyer with proof he's 21 or older without going through an FFL?
In Maine your can not ship firearms in the mail unless you have a federal firearms License. You might want to check, but I don't believe you can.

I'm pretty sure that usually you can only ship firearms either directly to yourself, a FFL holder, or the manufacturer. Although this might be a limit by individual states or shipping companies.
Here's what the ATF says about it.
I'd probally either do a FTF or CYA and ship it to his favorite FFL holder unless he was a good and old friend.
The BATF says I can(no federal law against it)but I don't know about Va.state law.
Ga says you can but only in Ga

Feds say, if it is over 50 years old, and or of curio or rare value because it is a scarce or collector firearm you can even ship it to California, though UPS asks if it is capable of firing. Just sent a Mountie to California UPS no FFL involved.
Inside the state usually is pretty easy on firearms transactions.
Do a google on your states sales of firearms, that's how I found the relic, curio fed law.
Common thing is no state law supercedes federal law, Caveat, check your local ordinances, might run into a hiccup there.
All shipping is long gun only. You can ship parts anywhere, get one of them flat rate boxes big enough for the butt stock, bolt, lever, triggerplate and UPS the rest.
