It's my understanding you can't carry a loaded gun in the ExpoMart. So what do you do with your CCW at the show?

I have never seen them check for CCWs.

Not even after the AD a couple months ago?

I've never been there, but plan to go this weekend.

I don't want to lock my gun in the car.

Dave,

Those bulges in our pockets won't be because we're happy to be at a gun show (unless, of course, somebody has a whole table of reasonably priced stripped lowers)!

Perhaps our military said it best: "Don't ask, don't tell".

See you at the show.

Do they frisk you? Run you through a metal detector?

Then i guess you know my answer.

Ive seen at some shows where they will ask you to unload your gun, and put a plastic zip tie through it, gunlock style. Im not sure if they make the dealers do the same. Even if they do, I see dealers with handguns on their hips all the time at shows.

That is only if you are openly carrying in a firearm because you intend to display/sell it. Otherwise they aren't searching anyone.

I've been to that show several times but not since the famous ND. I have never been searched only asked that if I have any guns I plan on selling or bringing into the open show floor that they need to have the zip tie through them.
