DFW Auto Show at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center

#1

Post by tool4daman » Fri Feb 16, 2018 10:08 am

I’m thinking of going to the auto show tomorrow at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson convention center in downtown Dallas. I know they allow licensed carry there as they are owned and managed by the city. I also checked their website and saw in writing that they allow licensed carry.

My question is has anyone been to the auto show this year and/or do you know if they actually use metal detectors? If so- do you have to go through a special line or special entrance to show your LTC and speak to an officer? I’m trying to ensure I get to the right entrance the first time, and not walk an additional 987 miles to get to the right entrance.

I did try searching before and saw a couple threads about the Safari club show as well as an old motorcycle show at the KB Bailey Hutchinson convention center. But I didn’t see anything about this year‘s auto show. Also previous threads I only saw dealt with Carrying in general and not necessarily a specific entrance we had to go through if we were lawfully carrying.

I've been to KBHCC for numerous events and they never had metal detectors. There are no signs that I've seen anywhere.

I was just there 2 weeks ago for a motorcycle show. There were no signs, no metal detectors, and no special entrances for LTC. Bought my ticket and walked through a regular entrance.

I've been the past two years and have never seen a metal detector at the entrance. I've also been to another show (18 wheeler trucks) the past couple of years and no metal detectors there either.

I'm going today with a group. I don't expect any issues.
It would be embarrassing if they have metal detectors.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Had no problems. No metal detectors, so I had to provide no explanations to anybody. (Like why I open carry a 1911 vs conceal carrying a Glock).

Hahahahaha. Where will this thread go now?

Just a point of information, the NRA Convention will be held at the KBH Convention Center in May. The NRA states that the convention will only be held in locations that don't restrict concealed carry.

Does this mean the KBH allows open carry? My OWB holster should be here tomorrow and I got it just to open carry at the NRA convention.
