I have a buddy who does a number of gun shows a year on the east coast (from VA to MA). I was surprised to learn that alcohol is served at the shows. Does this happen all over the country?

It's not like they're shooting there.

They sell beer at the big gun show here and this is Utah.

I've seen beer sold at shows in Missouri.

I've never seen it, too early in the day anyway...

Not that I've seen in NY....but they do sell alcohol at the car shows. Just goes to show that a popular privilege trumps a constitutional right.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:02:24 PM EDT
I was kind of surprised. I was always taught no handling of firearms if any alcohol is consumed.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:02:56 PM EDT
i can't remember if i've seen beer sold at the shows here but i don't see the problem if they did

I might like to mull over a big purchase with a beer before i make my decision

They do in my Hometown.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:03:26 PM EDT
Never seen it in VA or WV.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:03:31 PM EDT
Never seen it here, they do for the sportsmans show, but that's like camping shit.

Not that I'd have a problem with it. But if they did serve here I'd been a NFA owner many times over by now.

All the firearms are supposed to be unload
but we have ND often enough we don't need to add alcohol to the mix
And this is Texas

Even in Cali we get beer at the shows!

I've never seen boos served and MN shows

I seem to recall that the gun shows at Amon Carter had beer available. Never paid much attention as I don't feel like paying concession stand prices so I could be wrong.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:19:50 PM EDT
NO , not in B'ham

Of course this has never stopped me from sharing some Saki with my Jap sword collector friends

Fixed

I would never drink at a gunshow. My wife would kill me when I came home with 900 dollars worth of Beef jerky and Ninja stars

They have beer at many gun shows in MN.

And I don't have a problem with it.

They sell it at the Tampa show but I never see anyone drinking any.

I think its about $6.00 a cup so that might be it.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:34:06 PM EDT
I dunno if they do here, but if they did it would probably cost me a lot more money to go to the shows. ha
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:35:17 PM EDT
I've seen it in Indiana, if that was the state I was in at the time.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:37:52 PM EDT
Yup, in OR
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 6:37:57 PM EDT
Never seen it at any shows I've been to in MI or IN. Maybe it's a liquor license issue? Either way, I doubt I'd pay the jacked up price the vendor would want for a beer.

Around here - free food and beer.

Que?

With 50 states, it is entirely possible, but I have not noted drunken buying frezies here.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 7:00:32 PM EDT
if a man can not handle his drink its a safe bet he will also have trouble handling a weapon
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 7:03:40 PM EDT
I've never seen alcohol sold at a gun show, it would be a nice option, but I don't think I would buy any if I could. I spend enough as it is!

That's so you forget how shitty your version of the guns are.

Some shows in OK have beer...some don't

Alcohol is GTG at gun shows in Nevada.

Link Posted: 9/8/2010 7:10:17 PM EDT
They have to do SOMETHING to get you to pay gun-show prices.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 7:13:10 PM EDT
I never seen weed smoke at gun shows either. Sucks to be a "medical" marijuana "patient" excercising his or her second amendment rights
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 7:13:56 PM EDT
I always have several beers at the Big Reno Show
