NICS started in 1998. November 30th, 1998 to be exact. I remember it, because I was working for a now-defunct company called Galyan's Trading Company (bought out by Dick's). I worked in the hunt/fish department and I sold guns. Before it, you just filled out a 4473 and walked off with your gun if you answered every question correctly.
