Wait, don't you have to be an FFL to take advantage of NICS?
What is this E-Check thing?

I don't know. It sounded kind of hokey to me too.

I got as far as the page that says you are entering a secure computer and only users authorized by the FBI are allowed. Or something like that.
Thanks a lot for the link. :)

From the help pages there:
"Who can use the FBI NICS E-Check?
Any FFL and/or their designated representatives who normally contacts NICS for firearm transactions may use the FBI NICS E-Check. Individuals that utilize the FBI NICS E-Check are required to register with the FBI NICS E-Check to obtain access. This system can be used only for firearm transactions in accordance with the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993."
