Is Dallas Trade Mart / Market Hall 30.06 Posted?

Postby RoyGBiv » Fri Jan 17, 2014 8:55 am

I'm heading over to the Trade Mart building today to visit with a customer.
Was hoping someone could verify whether the location is enforceably posted. (you know what I mean)

I know the property is privately owned.
I searched here and found lots of talk about the gun show at Market hall.
I know the gun show folks like to put up their signs, but this is not a gun show.
I checked Texas3006.com, found nothing.

Just wanted to ping the collective before I decided what I was wearing today. :mrgreen:
Other than at gun shows, are any of the buildings at market Hall (specifically Trade Mart) posted with a proper 30.06?

I was considering taking the TRE and didn't want to show up only to find out I couldn't get in and didn't have my car to lock up my heater.

Thanks.! :tiphat:

The only time I've been there is during gun shows. The 30.06 signs taped on the second set of glass doors is pretty rough and doesn't look like it is replaced after every show. My guess (just a guess) is that the sign stays up.

I am friends with the security director at Dallas Market Hall. I just contacted him and they are not a posted location.

THANKS! :tiphat:

I wound up leaving before your post, and decided to take the car just in case. But I very much appreciate that you went out of your way to check for me. My bad for not asking a day or so earlier... :oops: . Anyone looking here for the same answer will certainly benefit from your help.

As you said, the site is not posted as far as I saw. I was only in one building (Trade Mart), which has a very poorly lit garage.

Thanks again for confirming.!

This thread is a few years old and I'm hoping for a more recent update.

I saw some other threads related to last year's gun show but they contained conflicting statements about whether there were valid 30.06 or 30.07 signs. I checked texasa30.06.com and Market Hall is listed for 30.07, but not 30.06.

I'm thinking about going to the RV show this weekend; has anyone visited Market Hall recently and know if there are valid 30.06 signs posted? Don't really care about 30.07 as I don't plan to OC.
