There are some basic tips before attending a gun show, whether it’s your first time or 50th time. Make sure you respect others and return the firearms the way you’ve found them. Make sure each firearm is unloaded, and never open more than one blade at a time. Make sure you have cash with you, as some places don’t have ATMs and charge a fee to use credit cards. If you plan on purchasing ammunition, make sure you can easily transport it as multiple boxes can get heavy!
