Every year hundreds, if not thousands, of Floridians attend their very first gun show. So, for the benefit of the uninitiated, we'd like to tell you just a little bit of what goes on at your local Gun Trader Shows. Here are some answers to the most common questions we get at the entrance to our show.
Q: Can I BUY a gun at the show?
A: Yes you can as long as you are legally able to do so. That simply means you are of age and can pass a NICS background check for no felony convictions. If that's the case, then you're sure to enjoy the selection of rifles, shotguns, handguns, ammo, and accessories our vendors have to offer. And, rest assured, we select only top quality, knowledgable, Federal Firearms Licensed, (FFL), Dealers and Collectors to sell at the show so we're confident you'll find something to suit just about every type of gun enthusiast.
Q: Can I SELL a gun I own at the show?
A: Absolutely! Here's how it works. Bring your unloaded gun to the show entrance and our Firearms Inspector will check your gun into the show by examining it to insure that it is unloaded and then strap the action closed with a plastic zip tie. This is to prevent anyone from chambering a round of ammunition and creating an unsafe environment inside the show hall. After you have checked your gun in and paid your admission, you're free to enter the show and negotiate the sale of your gun. In fact, this is how many dealers keep their used firearms inventories at adequate levels for their clientele.
Q: What about TRADES?
A: Simply put, that's up to you to negotiate. Once you've checked your gun into the show, as described above, you will be asked by lots of vendors what you want to do with your gun. Are you looking for ammo? A case or holster perhaps? Are you looking to sell it outright? Would you like to trade it in toward the purchase of something new? As with anything of value, guns can be bought, sold or traded for something else of value. We've seen folks trade up by using their gun as a down payment and adding the difference to get a better gun they wanted. We've also seen trades of one gun for another of equal value with no money changing hands essentially. We've also had a retired law enforcement officer trade down with his no-longer-used service pistol to a more convenient concealed carry pistol allowing him to put cash in his pocket from the difference in value from his old gun to the new one he traded for.
Q: I've heard a lot of scary stuff about gun shows on TV...Is dealing at a gun show safe?
A: You can rest assured that Gun Trader Shows makes every effort to meet or exceed the requirements of ALL Local, State, and Federal laws with regard to the sale or transfer of firearms and ammunition at our shows. After all, we're your neighbors and want the same safety and security for you and all our fellow Floridians as we do for our own families. That's just how we roll.
