  • Can I bring a firearm to the show to sell or trade?
    Yes, Please be sure the gun is unloaded before you enter the show, and take it to our gun check table at the show entry for verification. They will clear it and secure it with a zip tie to disable the action. No loaded firearms and no loaded magazines are permitted at the gun show. Your personal safety is our number one priority while you are at the show.

    We are proud supporters of the right to carry and have lobbied extensively to establish and extend that right to all. As long as you're not carrying to flaunt it as a badge of freedom, no one will know.
