Gifting a firearm via last will and testament

I am in the process of creating a will, I live in Georgia. I am planning to leave my firearms to my stepson who lives in Florida. I have specified that all my assets be left to my wife but there is a special "gifting section" that allows for personal property to be distributed. My impression is that this gift section is outside the scope of asset distribution.

Since the firearms are being distributed as a gift and not as a beneficiary of my assets, is this legal? Federal law, I understand, does not require an FFL if the firearms are bequeathed to a person in another state if they are via a will. Or would I be better off telling my wife to transfer them via FFL to be on the safe side.
