You yourself don't have to have one. At least I didn't when I shipped off an action awhile ago.
Brent is correct.
You do not have to be a FFL, you just have to send to one.
My suspicion is that your Fedex place is a franchise store like the UPS stores. They can set their own policy and refuse to ship anything they see fit.
If that is the case you'll need to take it to the real Fedex or UPS terminal in your area. They almost always have a better grasp of reality and regulations.
