I've worked some as "Safety Officer" at the door, on the floor and at tie-table at some of the DFW area shows. While policies may vary somewhat, I've never known of a CHLer having a problem with carrying either exposed or concealed inside one of these shows - so long as the magazine is out and the action is tied.

Most shows here prohibit (for good reason) any type of non-boxed or non-bagged live ammo.

BTW, Huf, Welcome to the forum. :grin:

If ALL CHLers were of that mindset, we would ALL be much better off. Unfortunately, a few are not. And you are right, the statistics indicate that the majority of the gun show NDs, as rare as they are, usually happen with (those-rules-don't apply-to-me) VENDORS' guns.

Sorry, but I'm still fuming over an incident two weeks ago today at a show very close :???: to where Mr. Spud lives. On Saturday when we ran into each other in one of the isles away from both of our tables, another vendor acquaintence (another of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children) mentioned having a new 9mm Rorhbaugh (spelling?) and reached into his pocket. Knowing his "mindset", I said "I'll look at it some other time, maybe at the range." and walked away.

Then Sunday, while looking for a magazine for a friend, I ambled by the table where he was sitting with another friend. Knowing that I own a PM-9, the guy immediately stood up, whipped the Rorhbaugh out of his pocket, dropped the magazine and jacked a JHP of the chamber, holding it up and saying "See, it shoots full power 9mm." Thereafter ... well ... let me put it this way to stay in line with the forum's verbiage policy, before asserting that the gun was supposed to be tied off and beginning to leave, my final reply included the word IGNORANT and the rest had something to do with the offspring of a female dog ...

Very well said, spud. Thank-you sir.

In my not-so-humble-opinion, it seems that it's often the same type of "mindsets" who believe they have an absolute right to carry anywhere they choose that are also inclined to think they have an absolute right to pull that LOADED "latest and greatest" piece out and SHOW IT OFF ... :sad:
