    We're getting ready to head to the Sportsman's Show and I'd like to know if any of you have experience carrying at it or any of the other shows at the Expo center. I know the gun show rules, but I'm wondering if the other shows are any different.

    Rules at the gun shows? Do they not allow chl holders to carry? If that's the case, how is it enforced?

    They put up signs and ask you if you have a firearm.

    I think the show has a website. I'd look there for rules. The expo center can't set rules regarding firearm possession but a show renting the facilities can.

    concealed means concealed. if you declare a gun, however, they'll just ask you do unload and let them zip-tie it... if you should need to throw down, just take cover, break off the zip-tie, load and make ready. or just keep it concealed, and when asked, scowl and say "no. i'm anti gun."
