The 4473 has a specific question regarding "Are you the actual purchaser/transferee of the firearm?" The FFL may not transfer the firearm to one who is not the actual purchaser/transferee of the firearm. There are some examples on the back of the 4473: http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/atf-f-4473-1.pdf
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
