    That is usually the way I've seen things handled here at the Tanner Gun shows at least. Most weapons are cabled down or tie wrapped depending on type to make them non-functional. Ya want to check out a gun closer, the seller will cut the wrap for ya, then button it up again when you move on. Only makes sense...shows are so crowded, it's hard to keep an eye on everyone at once!

    Most weapons are cabled down
    - good move to avoid theft too - seems at times guns ''disappear'' when table proprietor not looking!!!

    Clarification-

    All fireams had to have a special colored cable tie to secure them while on display. IF, tie removed while handled under supervison - one was immediatly put back on.

    Some guns were on display where one could handle. Some were cabled to table, some under glass, others out of reach ( behind table).

    Point being specially colored ties were used on firearms coming into, while displayed, once bought and carried in a safe manner while inside, and leaving the show.

    I am with F350, there are really some bad people in this world that want to see hurt so they set fires, throw rocks from bridges at cars and load a round into a gun at the show. However we must all abide by the rules and check the gun prior to handling it.

    safety rules were not followed and better gun show rules should be in place. Our local gun shop trigger locks all guns in front of the counter and the guns shows I have been to flex ties were used for all guns.

    There were a couple of shows in North Texas that had negligent discharges within the last couple of years.

    I still go to shows, but now I go alone. I use to like taking my wife and kid along, but not any more. When I heard about a shot being fired at (adult) waist level and thought about my six year old walking around. Not worth the risk.
