I'm going to my first gun show this weekend, mostly because there is a particular pistol I'm after that I can't seem to find in stock at retail. I just assume the selection will be better at the show (if not the prices). I have WA DL and WAC Membership, but no CPL (didn't think I needed one, as just a home defense gun guy, until now). My general question for you folks is what tactics do you recommend I employ at the show when looking for my pistol of choice? More specifically: - Should I visit every single table to test availability and pricing before I buy? Time is worth more to me than money, for the most part, so I'm kind of indifferent to price differentials less than $50-$75. Is there any sort of pattern to where various vendor types set up? - Should I look for private sellers since I don't have a CPL? Or does that not matter? - Is there sales tax? - What paperwork or information should I insist on, if anything, as a buyer? I don't want something stolen, etc, and would prefer responsible traceability for any private party sale. - Anything else you wish you had known before the first time you bought a gun at a gun show? Thanks in advance for your help and sorry for my newbie questions!
