I would bet it was undercover officers from somewhere. I have had officers who I have shot IDPA with approach me at a gun show trying to set me up for a straw purchase. They must be very poor with faces. I am 6'4" 260 lb, it's not like they shouldn't remember me. These guys just hang out at the fairgrounds during every gun show. I don't know how they manage to arrest anyone but they manage to arrest several people for straw purchases at every gun show.

Donn- probably not ATF, but Bloomberg's Minions are a distinct possibility- he has been after this shop and sued them. So the shop installed recording CCTV system.

Boat- if they had opened their mouth one more time, that was about to happen. Solicitation to commit a felony. Happens to be a State law as well.

It would've been okay to sell to these guys if Eric Holder had been with them.

Saw a video where two guys came into a small diner/coffee shop. They approached a table of 6 men with their guns drawn and wanted their wallets. Turns out the 6 men were off duty cops just trying to enjoy a cup of coffee. I think 1 perp got out the door but not sure he actually got away. Surprise! Surprise!
