When a Federal Firearms licensee transfers a firearm to himself, is?

It depends If the FFL is a Sole Proprietor of the business, the FFL and the person are considered the same entity, and the FFL can dispose firearms from business inventory into Personal Inventory without going through a Form 4473 nor a NICS check. If the FFL is actually for an LLC or another form of corporation, then the FFL is in the name of the business, not the individual person, and they are separate entities. Transfers from the business entity to the person require a Form 4473 and a NICS (although the VAST majority of FFLs have a license to carry, and thus are not required to run NICS on themselves). These transfers show normal disposal in the records, just like any sale to any person off the street.
