    Hopefully, if any UBC becomes law here there will be a provision to waive the CPP holders. So far I still have to get the NICS and I usually get delayed (never denied). This is primarily a blue state and so far there have been no efforts by the legislature to make anything easier for the law abiding gun buying public. It's a two way street and I'm voting in Nov.

    Oregon has universal background checks at all gun shows. They're still going strong. As for kitchen table dealers. When I ran a gunsmithing business out of my home, only two distributors would sell to me. The rest required a place of business separate from my residence. Also, I'm not sure how the ATF feels about giving licenses to kitchen table dealers anymore. All of the ones I know have had their licenses for years. When I applied for mine, they came to my home and inspected my premises and interviewed me to make sure I had legitimate business interests. So it might be difficult to convince them to give an FFL to someone who has no gunsmithing, no stock/inventory, and only wishes to do transfers.
    At least that's my $.02 Feel free to take issue with it if you want to give me my $.02 first... :)

    They do it every day.

    Not difficult at all, and actually very easy.

    There is no requirement to do gunsmithing, stock inventory or even do X number of transfers.

    When I was interviewed by ATF I asked the agent about having a storefront. He told me that I would be surprised at how many people worked out of their homes. Several of the wholesale distributors will not sell to you if you don't have a storefront. With E-commerce like it is the distributors are screwing up big time.

    All they(ATF) care about is logging in and out. Meaning you are actually running a business. Not just buying cheap guns for yourself
