    At the last WAC show the BATF was there handing out an "Important Notice to Dealers and Other Participants at this Gun Show".

    I was just a reminder of the laws on gun transfers but it does show the WAC (and others) are being watched!!

    I feel about the same way towards the WAC that I feel towards the ATF.

    Why? Because you can't pass the WAC background check?

    LOL! Thats a swing and a miss.


    I grew weary of the politics.

    When they ejected and banned the Vancouver FFL @ Puyallup maybe 07 or 08, I turned in my badge.

    Hey, guys...It's a private club. No need to ding it. If you don't like it, don't join. I'm not a member, no need to be, but I'm not going to howl at the moon about them.

    Its a private club I was a member of for years. I paid my dues, I supported the functions and I went to shows.

    Then, imo, the board hijacked the club, twisted things the way they wanted them and ran off some serious RKBA people. A lot of them.


    I dont howl at the moon, I think I have paid for the right to voice my opinion when their name comes up. Awfully telling that Im not the only one with a negative opinion of them.

    I pay the dues so I don't have to wait in the line (sometimes around the block) to get into the shows. It's also good to be able to buy F2F at the show without hassle, and to be able to sell or trade the few things I get tired of. I don't pay any attention to the politics - membership is well worth the price just for the convenience. Sorry if there is BS going on behind the scenes, but they are the only game in town for shows that I know of.

    Pay my dues, go to shows, don't stand in line, buy, sell, face to face. Ignore the rest. 30$ is cheap (four shows!). What is not to like. Last week the line was at least a block long.

    This is what normal people at normal guns shows do without added cost from a group that promotes themselves as "pro-gun".....................

    Suprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ATF have been at the WAC shows for a VERY long time. They have been watching things that I know of since the ealry to mid 90's when I was a member. They have even tried to set up stings. The one name that comes to mind is agent Ben Silva. Anybody who know WAC back in the 90's knows who he is. Big brother is always watching.

    I'm not a member, but my father-in-law is, and he's passed some of their "Gun News" publications to me. The first couple I got were 4 pages of gun related stuff and another 20+ pages of political fingerpointing at various members who were running for their BoD. It was sickening to see what was probably at one time a good thing, go down the drain like that with mud-slinging and political infighting. Someone said "If you don't like it, don't join" no problem there. Screw politics

    I never said they haven't been there for many years! What I said was they were passing out reminders of the laws at the last show. I've been there several times helping a friend at his table. I've noticed lots of people that seem out of place!
