At shows people openly fondle stuff.
It has degraded these days into some sort of macho tacticool fashion show.
Don't see much of that on the streets.
Sorry man, the average person IMHO is a freakin retard.
Don't care if they are part of the gun culture or not.
Just askin' for John Q to screw it up, by "allowing" CC at a show IMHO.
I think a non enforced rule might be of damage limiting use.
If you have $$$$ or guns, are going to be back and forth in the parking lot with such, yeah, have a J frame or something small hidden. Have your bud be the pack mule and you the armed person, hands free.
I just get sick of folks looking at a gun, their bud goes "hey that's like mine" and he pulls it from his waistband and points it at me when moving to show it to his bud (had that happen at shows and when I worked in a shop).
All the damn time.
Oh yeah, big friggin' sign at the shop I worked " Please-No loaded firearms allowed".
Now when the LE or military guys do it to me, I feel even more special.
Lost count how many times guns have been pointed at me, dozens of loaded ones at least. Kind of blase' about it these days, it happens so often.
Thankfully none ever went off.
Other guys at the shop before I worked therehad to patch some walls and change their underwear due to some customer screwups.
Will agree, that the average anti gunner is an exponentially more stupid person than the average gun owner
