Frequently Asked Questions
What is a "Gun Show"?
It is a place where exhibitors come from all around to sell their wares. You can buy things, sell, or even trade guns, knives, swords and of the like. There are lots of guns (new and used), ammo, holsters, accessories, hunting stuff, jewelry for the ladies, knives, coins, collectibles, books and military items and much, much MORE.
Where do I buy tickets?
Tickets may be purchased at the door.
What if I want to set up and sell my wares?
You contact the show promoter about availability and cost. Sales tax #‘s are up to each individual, it is suggested that you get one. Please visit our dealer page.
What if I don't have guns to sell?
Related items to hunting, fishing or such are acceptable. If your items are totally non-related, there is a small percentage allowed in each show so that we can keep our shows family-oriented and meet visitor expectations.
Do I need an FFL to exhibit my guns, what if I just want to clean out my closet or gun safe?
There is currently no state or federal law saying you must be a dealer to sell your personal guns. You are required to follow all state and federal laws about age requirements and being a state resident. It is unlawful to sell a rifle or shotgun to a person under 18 years of age, or 21 years for a handgun. Federal law also restricts selling a firearm to a person who is not a resident of the state in which the transaction takes place.
How do I get on the mailing list to be notified of shows?
You will be added when making a table space reservation,. If you are a customer that would like to know when a show will be in your area, please go to our home page and sign up. If you want to be deleted from the lists, please let us know that also.
I'm coming to the show as a customer, can I bring a gun in to sell or trade?
We’d love for you to. Where else can you go to do this? We have security at the door to check your gun and put a tie strap on it to secure it and let others know it has been checked.
I have a CCL, can I carry it in the show?
SAFETY FIRST is our answer, and supporters of the Second Amendment and those of us in the firearm-related industry do not need any more bad publicity. We ask that you unload your firearm, get it checked at the door and either leave your magazine and ammunition in the car, or security can hold them while you walk the show. Our number one concern is safety, followed closely by the demands of our facility insurance underwriter. We are very vigilant about safety rules and regulations for our dealers, and our request for securing of CCL firearms is an extension of that policy.
