If you have to do a NICS at any show, is there no need to one in a FTF for a NY resident? I have always shipped to FFL or C+R and wanted to know. Thanks....

Ray,

Thanks for the info.. I thought the changes to NYS law that Pataki put in required a NICS if the parties met through a gun related event. Is that true?

If the sale was agreed to at the gun show, then yes, technically. If you met at the show but agreed to the sale at some later point, no.

Yes

General Business Law Article 39-DD

1. A national instant criminal background check shall be conducted and no person shall sell or transfer a firearm, rifle or shotgun at a gun show, except in accordance with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. 922(t).
2. No person shall offer or agree to sell or transfer a firearm, rifle or shotgun to another person at a gun show and transfer or deliver such firearm, rifle or shotgun to such person or person acting on his or her behalf thereafter at a location other than the gun show for the purpose of evading or avoiding compliance with 18 U.S.C. 922(t).
3. Any person who knowingly violates any of the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a class A misdemeanor punishable as provided for in the penal law.
