Just another example of an anti-gunner now understanding that person-to-person sale is legal EVERYWHERE IN THE STATE....gun shows aren't magical places. Hope you guys get a good turnout.
...so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Cross roads ought to step up their defense, as they are the big time in gun shows, one would think they'd have a plan for this, or do they.................................

Crossroads has been trying to discourage private sales at their shows for years, unless you buy a table.

Pardon my ignorance on this, I've not ever looked into it, but does Crossroads & the like let anyone who has the cash buy a table or do they do a background check??? Just curios...

Anyone willing to pay can buy a table. About $100 per table.

My one beef with crossroads is that at all their shows they have had at the fairgrounds here in Tucson they'll have these large signs out that say " Illegal to do private sales in the parking lot", I've had arguments with their hired "safety experts" telling them that just because someone doesn't want sales in the parking lot makes it illegal to do so, they come back with it is illegal but then can't come up with the statute that makes it illegal.

One of the Crossroads firearm checkers who zip tie your guns told a guy in front of me that it was against the law to bring a loaded gun into the show. He said this after he found a round in the chamber of the gun he was checking.

I told the guy it wasn't illegal, it was just a violation of Crossroads rules...huge difference.

I checked my pistol at their entrance table and got lectured for carrying it with a round in the chamber and safety on. I didn't say squat but gave the guy my best "you gotta be kiddin me" look. I was following their rules by checking it at the table. Could have just walked in with it concealed. How can it be such a surprise to those folks running a gun show that someone would carry ready to rock and roll? Must be some anti gun sentiment in that crowd. I haven't been back to a Cross Roads show since.

any new regulation for a gun show will be the death knell for it, once they get in a new rule, it will never end, and gun shows will become a thing of the past. the family that runs cross roads, has had their way for decades, and suspect they think private sales being stopped will help them, most would realize it would not. jmo

Over the years I have bought more guns at gun shows from private citizens than from dealers.
I can not remember the last gun I bought from a dealer at a gun show.
Very seldom have I seen any decent deals at a gun show from a dealer.

Pay for parking, then pay to get in.

That's what it's all about at a Crossroads show...

Sometimes not the brightest bulb in the pack... Years and years ago I had to check my M-11 (open bolt, full auto) there and the guy just ran a zip tie around the pistol grip and trigger (trigger was fully depressed). After he handed it back to me, I asked him if he knew what he had just done and why it was not the proper way to disable this gun the way he did. The guy just gave me a blank stare.
