I'm wondering if the C&R would qualify AS your background check.
I've bought C&R guns by giving the dealer a signed copy of my C&R FFL and showing them my driver's license. I get thanked for it because it saves them the phone call, and they don't have to wait for me to write "NO" umpteen times.
TN law says you have to get a background check for each firearm you purchase.
If I were you, I would double-check the law. See who is exempt from this requirement (there's probably a small laundry list exempting dealers, LEOs, court officials, military, etc.), then check the legal definition for each of the classes of exempt people. Remember that a C&R licensee if a "Federal Firearms Licensee" and a "Federally Licensed Collector" but is not usually considered a "Dealer".
