I think it would be poor form to stick your nose into the middle of someone's discussion with a dealer, but beyond that I'd have no qualms asking to see what someone has. And I wouldn't be hiding in a hallway or bathroom to do it. My experience is that very few dealers at shows are there to do heavy duty buying. Might be there for a purchase or two, but most of them are there to raise cash, not hand it over to someone else.

Default I would wait til he left show

Dealers pay good money to set up and buying walk ins is one of those things they are paying for.

I agree. Cards are fair game if the guy is not at a table talking to a dealer.

I first hand saw a promoter walk up to guy trying to sell and say something to the effect of " Hey, knock it off..dealers are complaining that your selling to customers "

I always carry a couple of graded cards in my pocket at a show. Usually a hot card that I'm using to sell or trade with. A pretty innocent "Hey what's in the case... do you ever trade?" with cards in hand so they know you're just a dude can spark a fruitful conversation and a possible transaction.

Dealers aren't looking to help anyone out. So if in your mind you're saying to yourself, "I will pay market value for that card," then the guy would probably love to talk to you.
