I believe I've identified my preferred concealed carry weapon. I MAY mail-order it from another state and have it shipped to a local FFL. My question is: Which entity (if any) is required to initiate the background check?? (Note: I have a recently issued carry permit from my state.)

Your local FFL who will receive the firearm for you will then do all required paperwork and initiate the NICS in order to transfer the gun to you. Works just like you bought the gun from the FFL, except that you pay the dealer on line who then ships then gun to the FFL. Your FFL will likely charge you for the transfer, and this charge typically runs anywhere from $15 to $50 depending on the FFL, whether long gun or handgun, etc.

My local FFL changes only $15... I mostly order all my guns I want.

15 to 25 is fair I think All he does in log it in and out of his books . All paper work Same as if you bought it their . More than that is greed
It may be greedy if the FFL is a small home based operation with little overhead. For a storefront operation with overhead operating expenses, and with a big investment in a large large inventory, he would be cutting his own throat if he does transfers on items he also stocks for little or no money. Low priced transfers on used purchases, or items he doesn't stock, might be different.
