Only 24 guns available to get around the 25 guns is a gunshow? That is a recipe for fail! My advice to the members is to steer clear! But that is just my personal opinion.
Hmmm trlsmn, is this a diversion tactic so you can be the only one there.....I wonder
"And it would have worked if it hadn't been for those meddling kids!"
I will tell you guys exactly how easy I could see this go sideways. Sure only 24 guns inside for sale, what about the guns people are carrying on them that might be for sale? How can the organizers control that?
It would be easy for a guy to bring in a gun to sell on his person and then make a deal with the "let's step outside and make this legal" then everyone inside is now in violation of the more then 24 for sale.
And don't forget that a sale set up at a gun show is a gunshow sale! This can only end badly!
Sounds like the BTAF will be handing out free bracelets with every purchase......who likes free jewelry?
+1 on Trlsmn's points. I would (and will) stay away from an event like this. The risk just isn't worth it to me.
(I would like some of that free jewelry Logical1 is talking about. I look great in silver. )
Anyone dumb enough to get into this probably ought not be able to possess a firearm. This is the kind of bubblegum that screws it up for everyone.
It would make for a great news story if the BATF were to break it up though. I can only imagine how many times "machine gun", "assault rifle", and "military style" would be used in the article.
Joey, I'm surprised, you won't let me spell out bubblegum, (comes out horsebubblegum) but you let such things like this on your site that's as bad as it can get for the whole "community." Think there aren't going to be more than 24-guns there?

I imagine they're on top of it and all will be just peachy - no laws broken here. :thumbup:
I was going there to shoot anyway on Saturday, if i can sneak out on my honey dos. All the members I've met are really great people, and this swap meet has been running for a number of years, so I'm guessing they have the bugs worked out of it. I suspect it will be small, few sellers, few buyers and lots of fun conversations between fellow gun nuts.
So, I think its a social event first and and swap meet second, because that is sort of how everything else works at this wonderful club that I dearly love!
can I please have my kitty and hat back?
I gots ya cat na hat right heya!

I attended the swap meet and it was great, small, only about 10 tables, and not much stuff at all. My major score is a Daisy target air pistol from about 20 years ago in its orginal box with the orginal instructions. The thing is about a foot long and looks fantastic. Has a pump handle that folds out from the left side. I got a few more things too and it was great fun and only took half an hour even with me asking all the vendors about the rifles.
Really nothing at all like a gun show, but fun.
