SAFETY FIRST

Expo Firearms Policy

Defensive sidearms are welcome inside this show. All state laws will apply and all guests must abide by the following rules:

1

Your personal defensive sidearm WILL REMAIN HOLSTERED at all times unless you are reacting to an imminent deadly threat. In the unlikely event you need to use your firearm in defense of life remember the rules: Target Acquisition, Target Identification and Target Isolation.

2

You are specifically prohibited from drawing your firearm to check holster fit, “show” the gun anyone, or otherwise conduct ANY administrative handling of your defensive firearm. This includes, but is not limited to loading, unloading, clearing, cleaning or any other activity that does not involve reaction to an imminent deadly threat.

3

ANYONE observed violating any of the above-mentioned rules will be immediately escorted from the premises and barred from returning. No refund of your admission fee will be given.
