    I am going to a swap meet at the Puyallup fairgrounds tomorrow (Sat 14th). Are there any issues with carrying firearms there (OC or CC)? I would hate to get all the way to the gate, wait in line, then have to go all the way back to the car to lock up my firearm.

    Thanks,

    Well the fairgrounds is private property, so they can prohibit anything anytime they want without notice.

    They prohibit guns during the fair. I don't know why they wouldn't during the swap meet.

    Signs? Unknown to me.

    They prohibit carrying loaded firearms during the gun show too. This has been talked about to death about the Puyallup fair grounds.

    there are signs outside of all gates during fair time that say "no weapons" along with a host of other rules. the signs are pretty big. its not against the law to carry there, just against the rules of the place.

    If I have a choice of being stopped for OC don't ask & don't tell works for me. OC will be challenged at the gates, CC will not.
