    I plan on attending the ontario gun shoe may 15th and 16th and i am just wondering if they allow UOC. I dont see why not because they check all firearms to see if they are unloaded, and what do they concider loose ammo. are loaded mags allowed. I contacted crossroads and havent received any responce yet.

    Yes, but you can't carry matching ammo on your person at a gun show. Ridiculous, I know.:?

    If you UOC at the gun show, DO NOT carry any ammuntion for the weapon you are carrying. DO NOT buy any ammunition for the gun you are carrying. It is against the law.

    SECTION 12071.4[/b](a): This section shall be known, and may be cited as, the Gun Show Enforcement and Security Act of 2000.

    ...

    (g) No person at a gun show or event, other than security personnel or sworn peace officers, shall possess at the same time both a firearm and ammunition that is designed to be fired in the firearm. Vendors having those items at the show for sale or exhibition are exempt from this prohibition...

    Because they are afraid they will run out of zip ties. Don't they zip tie the actions?

    Never open carried at a gun show, but I heard this is common practice even in other states... which I find very strange... My knife can cut a zip tie no problem.

    Ths gun show I went to last year, allowed UOC. at the entrance, they have a table for inspection and zip tieing. I bought 250 rounds of ammo, and my wife (who had a back pack) carried it for me. I offered to switch with her, but she said it was ok. I love my wife.

    I was thinking of just OCing with no ammo or loaded mags. I just plan on getting some glock parts there.

    The only way I would open carry in a gun show is if I was with someone who could carry my full magazines.

    UOC without even having any access to ammunition is just carrying a gun for show.

    If you have someone with you, they can carry your full mags and if something happened where you needed to load up, they just hand you the mags and you load up.

    On my first pass, my sleep-deprived brain read "250 pounds of ammo." I don't even think my wife and I combined could carry that much.

    Just leave the gun in the car. What is the point of open carrying a gun that you have no ammo to and the action is zip-tied open?

    LOL CA_. 250 pounds of ammo wouldn't even fit in the little school back pack. Still funny though

    This was a "Crossroads Gun show" I went to. I emailed them before hand. This is their response:

    XXXXX- thanks for your inquiry. You are welcome to bring your unloaded firearm to the show. You will need to check it in with us before entering the show- there will be a gun check table near the entrance. We hope to see you there!
