    Spokane Gun Show

    We will have an Open Carry table at the Spokane Gun Show, 5 - 7 November. Actually we will have two tables but will be sharing them with two other friendly organizations. The gun show is open 1200 - 1900 Friday, 0900 - 1800 Saturday, and 0900 - 1600 Sunday. If you have time and would like to help man (or woman) the table and hand out copies of the Washington Gun Rights Pamphlet, let me know. If you are at the show and want to stop by and say "hello" feel free. The total fee for two tables is $150, so the Open Carry share is $50. Since we are not selling anything, but giving away information and pamphlets, any donations are appreciated.

    The gun show will be at the Interstate Fairgrounds, 404 North Havana. Lots of free parking. No need to carpool.

    Questions?

    Answers?

    Snide, smart alecky, irreverent, and/or irrelevant remarks?

    And I complained about $40 for 2 days here at the WAC show....

    Is there a paypal or similar account that funds can be sent to? For those that haven't read the thread yet, Gunpal is having issues...

    I plan on being there friday from open to close at the table. I figure that is the hardest day to get filled with people working real jobs, whereas I will be off that day. I have already talked to Orphan so I will see *someone* there Friday. I will have pamphlets and a couple of holders for them.

    For people manning the table I will have some stuff (junk) I need to give away, esp for the reloaders. I have a bunch of styrofoam blocks that held blood collection tubes that make great cartridge blocks. I also may have some small hemostats to dispose of.

    See you all there.

    Do they allow you to carry without the action being "zip-tied" open at this show?

    Yes, the action can be closed on the zip tie or the zip tie can simply hold the hammer down once it has been determined to be unloaded.

    All guns have to be unloaded including CC, they dont pat anyone down or wave a metal detector over you so I wonder how many are CCing. Sometimes they are pretty strict about the zip ties and sometimes they are pretty lax. I usually have them tie through the barrel of my Kimber and close the action on the zip tie, reholster and you really cant tell unless you look close. I know they REALLY dont like it if you unload at the gun check table I have seen a few people do that, it gets pretty tense, I unload in the car in the parking lot put mag in back pocket and carry a sharp knife.

    Its great we are getting more support. Dwordinger and I will be setting up Friday morning. I have the Spokane OCDO banner and pvc pipe to put it up with. I also have a couple hundred pamphlets. They are the older version, so if anyone wants to bring newer pamphlets that would be great.
    Thanks.

    I'll have plenty of pamphlets as well as the FAQ sheet I put together to hand out along with the flyer.

    Well, that settles it then. I want to buy all you west siders breakfast Friday morning, but I am a cheep bastard. How about the Mickey D's on Sprague and Havana? It is just down the street from the fair grounds so you can head up and set up the booth with dwordinger and the others afterward. I naturally would expect any able bodied Spokanite to show up as well. How does 8 AM sound?

    There isn't that much to set up Friday morning. Fetch and I were planning to start about 10:00.

    The show hours were given in my first post. (It is open 1200 - 1900 Friday, 0900 - 1800 Saturday, and 0900 - 1600 Sunday.) Anyone who wants to help at the table, let me know what day and what time, and I'll build a schedule. If you have a cell phone, give me your number so if anyone has to change his schedule we can notify the person you were to relieve and the person who was to relieve you. If you would rather not post your cell number on the web for all the world to see, you can PM me.

    And for the West Siders, bring lots of money, and support the local economy.

    There is supposed to be an RV area in the Fairgrounds. No overnight parking in the main lot or inside fenced area per rules posted by another group using the facility.

    So with that in mind, and the fact that Squeak can't make it Friday, shall we do breakfast Saturday at McDonald's instead? I suppose a few more Spokanadians could make it that day as well and we could call it a regular OC meet-up. So Saturday at McDonalds, 8 AM. If there is any interest, I will start another thread.
