    Talking

    Here in New Mexico I open carry and all I do is let the people at the front door remove the magazine and put a wire tie thru the barrel and I put the mag in my pocket and holster my gin and that's it
    A good friend will sit next to you in jail and say damn we had fun

  4. Think about it.

    Think about all of the unintentional discharges you're heard of.

    Think how show organizers have to be totally paranoid because of insurance and various agencies that want to put them out of business.

    I'm a Life Member of Washington Arms Collectors. They are EXTRA strict, because they know they are the biggest "target" in the state. They operate on the presumption there are agents provocateur in every show (even if they don't catch them every time). Cameras are banned at WAC shows. Only members can buy and sell guns; anything else can be bought/sold by non-members.

    It's just too easy to get into conversation, compare guns, put one's carry gun back, talk some more, pull the carry gun for one more control comparison or something, and make a slip.

    Do I know people who will carry even knowing they'll be banned for life if caught? Yes. But those guns are in DEEP concealement.

    By the rules: If I carry, and many do, I unload and tie wrap the piece, then put it back into my holster/belt.

    In a WAC show, NO loaded magazines, NO magazines in guns (they even pull tubular mags from .22 rifles, and NEVER ammo on the same table as any gun that it will fit. They even put tie wraps on muzzle loaders.

    Are there sicko types in the gun-hating crowd, who would surreptitiously load a displayed gun, in hopes of causing an accidental shooting? YES! They hate all gun owners, and an accidentally dead gun owner at a show would be exactly what they could use. These dirtbags do exist, and they don't all work for F-troop.

    Even at the smaller shows, similar precautions are taken. I can't recall the last time I attended a show where tie wraps were not used.

    No, in 2010 it's VERY unlikely you'll see any gun shows in America that let you carry loaded guns. The one exception to this is, of course, the Police. My buddy with a badge never had any problem carrying his loaded gun in a show.

    If law abiding people can't have loaded weapons at gun shows , then only criminals will have loaded weapons at gun shows.

    I just wish the Washington Arms Collectors were truthful on their website, but they aren't.

    Washington Arms Collectors

    The Washington Arms Collectors (WAC) is a membership organization affiliated with the National Rifle Association. WAC puts on one of the largest gun shows in Washington State. You can and SHOULD become a member of WAC. Only members can buy and sell guns at our shows. Only members may carry firearms into the venue. Look through this site to find out all the ways that a WAC membership can be of value to you. WAC director positions are occupied by some of the most powerful people in the gun rights arena. WAC works to preserve your 2nd amendment rights. The WAC is based on the principles set forth by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution which states that every free citizen has the right to keep and bear arms. WAC members VOTE!!
    The red and blue statements above are complete opposites of each other.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    gun shows

    In Ohio there are no loaded firearms permitted except for law enforcement officers.

    All firearms rifles, pistols and shotguns are checked to be sure they are not loaded.

    The people that ask about loaded guns warn the police not to remove the pistol from the holster. The obvious reason is if the officer is going to buy a holster the show host does not want him pulling out a loaded firearm to try in the holster.

    That is it for Ohio Shows

    Hope this helps

    Unless you have a specific reason for bringing you gun with you such as to sell or trade it, leave it in the car, I don't want to get tossed out of a gun show in front of a couple of hundred people, a lot of them I know

    This entire paragraph makes no sense to me, I just cannot wrap my mind around the concept that anyone would be dumb enough to draw a loaded weapon just to "compare guns".

    Who is that stupid?
