As others have said, there isn't a law requiring you to ship through a FFL, but it might cost less.
Especially with a handgun. Here's why.

If you ship a handgun, you must ship it UPS or Fedex Overnight (or maybe also 2nd day). Even if its only going 100 miles. So that will cost you $50.

If you were a FFL, you could ship USPS Priority Mail flat rate box, for $12. ($7 if it fits in a small box).

So even if your FFL charges you $25 plus postage to ship it, it may be cheaper to use a FFL.

If its convenient for you, you can also bring the gun to CT.
CT law specifically has a carve out for your situation.
No permit is required to move the pistol "as merchandise".
