There are many kinds of FFLs. See here: http://www.atf.gov/firearms/fflc/ffl/ffl_types.htm
Some are for shops, some for manufacturers, some for importers/exporters, and some for individuals. I'm pretty sure that it's at least theoretically possible for an individual to get any of these for himself, too.
Yeah, I think an explanation of abbreviations is well worth it. I just don't know where it could be placed that people would easily find it. Not a lot of people check this forum, you know.
