I've been kinda pondering this idea for a while. I make T-shirts for side cash, and have been thinking about setting up a stand at some of the local gun shows to sell them. The investment would be minimal, and a table at a show is fairly cheap. They would obviously be pro-RKBA shirts and would be very much gun related. So, I have a couple questions.

Do you think I would do good at this, or would the market just not be there?

Would this put me on the same level as the Beef Jerky guy and cheap Chinese knife guy, or would it be more fitting?

Thanks for your input.

Beef jerky is the key to gun show financial success.

personally i think the only things that gun show organizers should allow to be sold at the shows are firearms, ammo, and firearms parts/accessories (scopes, carrying cases, target stands, etc.)

YMMV. i'd set up an online store to sell them, it's pretty easy to do.

I'd prefer you not.
I want to bring gun shows back to guns, ammo, accessories.

I don't have any problem with conservative or gun related T-shirts at gun shows.

Now if we could just get rid of the Beanie Babies, toys, and other assorted junk..

We have a pretty good T-shirt guy at our shows, but his business is for sale so I don't know if he is doing well.

I like to get the gun logo shirts when I am there.

yes, but remember that no matter what you sell them for or even if you make them exclusively, you will still constatntly hear, " I can get it cheaper on the internet".

And then you answer, "With shipping included? Heck you'll have it today if you buy it from me."

It depends on the shirts, I'd say.

I wouldn't mind having a few t-shirts from firearm companies.


I tried looking for t-shirts with the blue FN logo on them. I am now starting to believe they don't exist.

I think you would make money, Ill say that. People dont mind going to a show with some cash and dropping $25 on a couple T's.
