Winning post right there...

Here in NC, it's a big no no to carry loaded into a gunshow...concealed or not, the metal detectors will rat you out...

The hard core carriers unload, zip strap up, re-holster and 'carry' on...No mag, big plastic strap from the mag well through the action...but carrying none the less... Never made any sense to me...

My Gun Show asks for them to shown unloaded and a fragile zip tie goes through the barrel.
Fine with me. If I felt I really needed it, the zip tie breaks and a mag is handy.

Never had to worry too much in a gun show tho... except for spending too much money.

Not to long ago wana say like 2 or 3 months. AD at a show, one guy lost part of a finger.

It was a pistol that a vendor brought, it was loaded laying on the table.

I notice Indiana limits the type of rifle you can hunt with. Indiana only allows rifles that fire pistol cartridges. So do you refuse to deer hunt because you can not even hunt with a 30-30?

I suppose you don't see a problem with Brad and Dwayne straight
out of high school, totally experts in firearms from playing man of war video games games, getting their first real guns (ARs or AKs because those are the only totally real guns there are), loading their first real bullests into their first real mags and waving their new toys around to show their friends how really cool they are . after all it's their money and they totally have a right

Not really relevant but I like a challenge, rifles make it too easy.

After helping the local gun club put on a gun show, I found out that we could not let the customers have a loaded fire arm because of insurance. As hard as it is to walk into a show and not be able to have a loaded pistol, it is even harder to tell a man that he has to unload before he can go in. Please don't blame the people running the shows, they are trying to support our second amendment. Instead, blame the people that can’t be trusted and the lawyers that push liability to the extreme.
