    If you are a WAC member you are allowed to bring in a unloaded weapon to carry or to sell. The action will be zip-tied so that a round cannot chambered.

    If you are NOT a WAC member and want to become one you will have to leave your weapon in the car, become a member, then return to your car to get the weapon for sale or that you want to carry.

    WAC shows and rules can be found here:
    http://www.washingtonarmscollectors.org/shows.htm

    If you are NOT a member and would like to help out at the table I can get a "Vendors" badge for you and save you the $8.00 admission.

    I'm sure I'll be working at the show in two weeks. This show will be in the regular building.

    Just like M1Gunr said, if you're not a member you don't get in with a gun. If you have an expired membership, you're not a member. If you want to get in to renew your membership, you still won't get in with a gun. If you're not a current member, leave your gun in the vehicle until you get current, then go get your gun.

    This is better for you, since no one will know that you just left a gun in your car. Which is what happens when you come to renew and the security crew tells you, you cannot bring your gun in. Save yourself extra trips to the car.

    Had a great show in Monroe this weekend. gogodawgs came by and said "hi" after the Starbucks coffee breakfast.

    I'm meeting up with a old friend and heading to the show today around noon. We haven't been to the Puyallup show in a few years. I was planning on a new toy, but the fun-money was consumed Wednesday night by a plumbing emergency - a new water heater. Drat.

    You'll find the table in row 6 just past the midway mark (across from the Glock guy). I have my wireless access so i will be posting live from the show.

    Great to meet you today M1Gunr. Good show too - I found a couple of deals worth the drive and turnout was impressive.

    This is the first gun show I've been to that I've been asked to sign a petition regarding marijuana legislation. Caught me off guard a bit on that one.

    I showed up, walked around a bit and enjoyed it.

    Nice to meet M1gunr, gogodawgs, SpyderTattoo and the famous Grey Peterson.
    It was great to put faces to the names.

    Nice show today very busy early in the day.

    Thanks to Vandal, Bat, Moose for all stopping by....I know there were others but I just can't remember any names (I don't count spydertattoo since he is working security)

    Also Gray Peterson was helping with the sheriff from Oregon!

    Oh and finally found the firearm I was looking for.

    Having the banner double sided really helped bring in the folks....

    350-400 pamphlets and FAQ's passed out. Lots of great conversations & insights from all walks of life. It was amazing to see the smile of someones face when they actually saw the light that Open Carry was legal in WA.
    We had plenty of folks that CC is the only way for them but supported us in our right to carry. A few CC folks asking why we are stirring the pot... but all in all was a great weekend.

    We netted $158.85 in the donation jar & combine that with the 2 online donations for pamphlets and we paid for the table rental and just about have the latest run of pamphlets fully paid for. Future donations will be used for table reservations & supplies. I brought in 5 old holsters and had folks drop in donations if they wanted one. I only one left at the end of the show.... If you guys have anything to donate let me know. I was thinking we could probably rent 2 tables and have one for items to sell or donate.

    At some time maybe we could have a "silent auction" or raffle for that rumor of a mysterious gun ban sign that spontaneously showed up from that anonymous person which no one seems to have any information on.

    No this is not a butt gun, it is a concealed BUG, I already had a holster for it, well almost, I took it to the leather smith's at the show and had them add some stitching, so now I have a real nice CC BUG.
