    Can somebody explain exactly what is meant by this?

    Every gun show I have been too requires the usual FBI background check prior to purchase unless the firearm is pre 1898.

    Face to face transactions between citizens, is what I believe is what they refer to as a "loophole"

    Same question here. Are private sellers allowed to set-up tables inside gun-shows and sell firearms with out NICS checks?

    According to NBC News "special reports" they are. They are set up in the back of the building "where there is less traffic" but everyone makes a B-line for those tables.

    A seller can setup a table of used Glocks or whatever and sell them to anyone without a background check.

    This loophole should be closed and no law abiding gun owner should think otherwise. People that attain guns via this loophole and use them to commit crimes are endangering all our gun rights. Because apparently the right to bear arms is selective.

    Let me ask another way.

    Has anyone every seen a private seller, with a table set-up inside a gunshow, selling firearms without NICS checks?

    What the hell is wrong with you?

    I am a law abiding gun owner who prefers to buy his guns without the government's blessing or knowledge. 4473 is a defacto gun registry.

    If you think that will somehow stop the trafficking of guns to felons intent on using them to commit crimes, you haven't studied black markets well enough.

    Good God. With friends like you we certainly don't need enemies like the Brady Bunch.

    I generally skip gun shows, so I can't say that I have.

    Yes, lots of times. Perfectly legal as it should be.

    Long guns, yes. Hand guns, no. At least here in PA. And the long gun folks don't have tables, they usually walk around the show, gun over shoulder, with "for sale" flag on barrel.

    I've seen a VERY few individuals walking around gun shows with a flag in their slung or holstered firearm declaring it for sale. I've also been approached several times with offers to buy my firearm (I'm not a dealer). I've bought a few firearms at gun shows but can not recall if I had to do a check or not (buying mostly C&R type firearms and a M1 carbine). Certainly the VAST majority of firearms for sale at a gun show are being sold by dealers who have to do the paperwork.

    If they allow anyone to call the NICS system to get a "all ok" on anyone else then I don't think it would be all that intrusive. Maybe make it a $20 CC charge to discourage random checks. Of course thre is no need to mention which firearms are being sold, this is just a check that the individual is "cleared" to buy, right? Right?

    YES - many times - some tables even had the same seller with some guns requiring a 4473 - other marked "private collection" no check required.

    The used no check required guns were priced HIGHER than new guns - ON THE SAME TABLE.

    This use to be common at the Pasadena gun show - but the last few shows - I have not noticed this - maybe they changed the rules at the show - but as far as I know this would still be legal.
