    Saturday and Sunday

    January 23-24th

    Fond Du Lac County Fairgrounds Expo Center, Hwy 45-S


    Sat 8-5pm,

    Sun 9-3pm $4

    This is THE gun show to go to in N/E WI. Makes Oshkosh and Green Bay look tiny.

    Come in on the south end of town instead of going all of the way through town on 45. I usually take Military to Pioneer and then cut up before 45. I am not user what exits are open with the construction.

    Easiest and straightest way...

    Hwy 41 to North 151 Bypass . (First FdL Exit from the South, Last exit from the North)

    Turn Left (North)onto Martin Rd from the Bypass. (Less than 1 mile from Hwy 41).

    Martin runs right next to the Fairgrounds.

    9-3 are the posted hours. The reality is that you should be there before noon. Even then there will be vendors who have already left. By 1:00 most are packing up and by 2:00 it will look baren....

    Any of you guys have a connection with the organizer? Could we maybe do a Wisconsin Carry membership drive there? PM me if you know how we can get this set up.

    I might head there myself. Is open carry frowned upon in these settings? Just got a duty belt and I need to try it out.

    This would be a great time/place to do a membership drive for Wisconsin Carry.

    Tried to call the organizer, but he is out of town. Couldn't get hold of anybody but a secretary at a dentist office who didn't know anything.

    If any of you locals know if they would let us do a membership drive, let me know, I'll make the trip.

    Has anyone answered your question?

    It depends on what you consider OC. You may be allowed zip-tied UOC, that's Unloaded, with action zip-tied Open, Carry as is commonly required by the organizer's insurance company policy.

    Bit too far of a ride just to roam around. If this is an annual event I may make plans for next year. If I go all the way up there from MKE I would not want to come back empty handed. Would need to save my pennies and see what is coming up.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    All firearms must be zip-tied.I am sure that this will be strongly enforced.Since at the show last year a firearm did discharge into the floor.The firearm was zip-tied,but the customer cut the zip-tie and inserted a round.He did get charged with something,can't remember what.All I know is it sure put a bad feeling in the air with Obama just being elected.

    Wisconsin gun collectors, I believe is the organizer.
