Have a couple questions for the guys with or knowledge of FFL's.

To purchase a firearm and ship it out of state it has to go thru a FFL unless you are shipping to yourself. Do you still have to use a FFL if it an in state sale? I have read much on the ATF site but have only found subjects for shipping out of state.
You're correct. If it's in-state, you can do a face to face (both parties have to reside in the same state). I'm pretty sure it has to go through an FFL if you ship it in state (even if both parties reside in the same state).

I am getting ready to apply for my C&R but have also thought about getting a dealer FFL for a side business mostly transfers. What exactly does "must intend to engage in a firearms business" mean. Would running a business from your home with proper security (safe) primarily for transfers or guns shows qualify? Just curious about the ATF I know local and all laws may have different variations.
I'm not sure on this one. PM a member here... cdtracing. He should know more about this, I believe.

From the FAQs section on ATF's site

May a non-licensee transport firearms interstate for sporting or other lawful purposes? [Top]

Yes, provided the weapon is unloaded and in a locked trunk or, in a vehicle lacking a trunk, in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console. Also, the carrying and transportation must be lawful in the place of origin and destination.
