    Well most likely, they want to limit people pulling out loaded guns to try holsters or other reasons. Shot Show is the same way. I think the NRA expo allowed LTC with no issue.

    I still go but its mainly for the entertainment of laughing at the retarded prices.
    Anything classic or collectable is insanely priced. Or its been Bubba'ed to hell. Sometimes both!
    No I am not interested in your 1950's chop job 1903 Springfield for $1000.
    Colt Pythons are a typical example. $3000 for a six shot revolver?!?!?!?! Pythons aren't all that great anyways but $3K?!?!?! No wonder there are so many for sale.
    For $3K+ the damn thing better come with a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader.

    Well I went yesterday and had a good time. Lots of BS spread around. But as said, it's on life support and the O2 tank is on empty. Not a lot of large dealers. The main hall was appx 1/2-2/3 full. Nothing in the side or back room. Wide isles, etc. The last Big Town show I went to was larger. I keep saying I'm not going any more but who knows. Cost $20 to get in (2 of us), sold a scale for $20 and got my knife sharpened for $4 and wandered for 3+ hours. Enjoyable day. Then went to the VFW and watched the Cowboys win.

    Right now I like to go because there are a number of vendors I visit with each show. It allows me to get out of the house. Being I recently had neck surgery and activities are limited, being able to be on my feet and walk around for several hours is a very good thing. Did I say it allows me to get out of the house ? There is a vendor there I can get certain bullets from that I can’t seem to get elsewhere and even with tax it cheaper than I could get them shipped. Of course at the moment I can’t carry much but it allows me to concentrate on my quest for High Standards.

    Ft Worth is held at City owned property, so by law cannot be 30.06 posted by the city. The stock show used to be posted every year until the law changed. Now the signs at the ticket counters are all gone. (rodeo is still off limits by law though)
