arizona gun show this weekend
Hello , I have seen ad's and also on the cross roads of the west website that there is a gun show 8-9 th of sept at the Arizona state fair grounds. but if you look at the website for the state fair ground there is no mention of this or info on it.
I would like to know the rules for this show as I have never been.
by reading post here sounds like no load fire arms , and tie wrapped guns ? so is this for all guns shows , do I leave my ammo in the truck, and if I buy ammo at the show does this not make leaving it in the truck a mute point ? I cant take it in but I can buy it in there ?
anyway any info on THIS show would be appreciated
ps here is the link from the promoter :

My personal opinion: Don't bring a weapon to the gun show unless you are selling it. I usually leave mine in the vehicle.
If you must and it is in a handgun put the mag in your pocket and let them inspect an unloaded weapon. They will tie wrap it at the inspection table at the door.

I'll be going to the show on Sunday. I bring my carry gun with me into the show. I unload the mag and chamber before I leave the car. When you present your weapon for inspection and tie wrap, they will ask you if you have any ammunition. If you do, they will put it in a zip-lock bag. I believe they will strip your mag(s) and put the loose rounds in the bag.
This is all based on the honor system. You could as easily walk in with a loaded pistol (long guns are kinda hard to hide). The pros and cons have been discussed length on this and other boards. I choose to follow their rules. The consequences (I don't know what they are exactly) are not worth the risk.
One bit of advice, get there early! Depending on how many buildings they have open and if there are booths setup outside, it can really get crowded.

i just got this from the fair grounds staff :
Thank you for contacting us. The gun show is this weekend, Sept 8-9, and as
for the rules for the show, I'm not sure what you are wanting. The show
opens at 9am both Sat & Sun. The admission charge is $12.00 for adults,
children under 12 are free. If you bring a firearm to sale it has to be
unloaded and zip tied before entering show. I hope this helps you.
now they said guns for sale must be unloaded.
i really dont want to unload my gun. that is why i carry it. if i were not going to load it why have it. i would take it to the show because i might want to buy stuff for it and need it to try stuff on.

We had a gun show in Williams AZ two weeks ago, upon entering there was a sign that read "No concealed carry handguns", "No loaded firearms allowed". I took off my cover shirt, dropped the mag, and unchambered the round. I stored all of the stuff in the Jeep console. I DIDN"T LEAVE MY WEAPON IN THE JEEP! Too many people know that there might be a gun in a car at a gunshow. My advice is to take your gun in with you, open carry,unloaded, let them check and band it.. Rex

As azddave said, you are required to remove ammunition from the gun (and magazine) and put it in a ziplock bag that you are then given back. The gun is then peace tied and a sticker put on it so they know you either brought it in or paid for it. It's the honor system that you will actually leave the ammunition in the bag. Just be sure and bring a knife to cut the tie off when you exit, reload and you're on your way when you leave the gate. Although I've never heard of any problems in the gun show, it's a good neighborhood to be armed in....
