Do any of you give the gun shows a pass for posting the 30.06 statute. I do not. If a buisness does not want my $$$ regardless of the reason by posting the 30.06 then I will not give them any.

If you do give the gun shows a pass on this, please explain why.

I've never been to a single gun show that would allow a loaded firearm on the premises. That is the written rule for every single show I've ever even heard of, actually. Thanks to concealed carry, they have to post a 30.06 to prevent a loophole in their own rules. Personally, I think it is going a little overboard to look down upon them for posting a 30.06 sign.

Of course, I failed to mention that they include the rule about loaded firearms for insurance reasons to begin with.

I understand the reasoning for not allowing loaded guns at a gun show. The chance of a accidental shooting would be very high. So many guns are being handled at a gun show, being extra safe is good. If the 3006 sign is posted with that in mind, I understand. If it is posted because someone believes a CHL holder will try to use the gun in a crime at the gun show---well, that is just plain stupid. So, yes I go to gun shows and hope that the sign is there for simple safety, not stupidity.

I just don't see the need to carry one in a gun show. You're already surrounded with so many others guns and gun enthusiasts that I feel there's no need.

Also, not carrying into a gun show allows me to carry one more new gun out with me with my hands full of ammo... :-P

For those of you who piped in with "it's the insurance", okay. But would you give a pass to another buisness that said they had to post it or their insurance carrier would drop them?

I believe that people who boycott buisnesses that post and give the gun shows a pass are hypocrites. Don't gnash your teeth and make excuses, just accept it and move on.

I do not give passes. I changed banks 3 times in the last 9 years, and make it a point to go out of my way to not spend one red cent at 30.06 posted venues.
