Okay, so we are both learning something. I thought that the 4473 went to the FBI. I assumed this because the FBI keeps copies of those forms for 90 days. I also assumed that the $200.00 Transfer Tax License was the FFL.
Also, after looking through my copy of the "Firearms Curios or Relics List" I can only assume that a person would need a "Curious or Relics" permit.
Thanks for making me do some homework!

The BATF are the government goons assigned to collect the 4473 form info from the FFL's/gun shops. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Form_4473
I guess it is just your terminology that is confusing to me.
