Nations Gun Show: July 27 - 29, 2007

NATIONS GUN SHOW THIS WEEKEND!
JULY 27 - 29, 2007
DULLES EXPO CENTER
CHANTILLY, VA


THE NATIONAL FIREARMS MUSEUM WILL PROUDLY PRESENT TWO
FAMOUS REVOLVERS CARRIED BY CLINT EASTWOOD'S CHARACTER
DIRTY HARRY AND PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT.


The first revolver starred alongside Clint Eastwood in the 70's films Dirty Harry and Magnum Force. Dirty Harry Callahan held this 6 inch Model 29 as he confronted the killer and uttered the famous line, "Do ya [feel lucky] punk?" After completion of Dirty Harry and Magnum Force, this revolver was returned to the factory for refinishing. It was then presented to screenwriter John Milius as a gift from Clint Eastwood and Warner Brothers Studios. The second revolver rode with Theodore Roosevelt during his days as a Rough Rider and bears the holster wear from years of service. Roosevelt purchased this 44 caliber New Model No. 3 revolver with factory engraving and checkered walnut grips. One of Theodore Roosevelt's other note-worthy purchases was an NRA Life Membership.

Dammit I should have waited to Join the NRA! It's $10 to get in, right?

I'm heading down with a friend on Saturday. First time to a gun show ever!

any idea if they would have ar-15's there and if they would sell to MD residents? the last time i went to a show in VA all the vendors refused to sell guns to MD residents. their excuse was they didnt like MD so they didnt sell to their residents.

Check the website www.thenationsgunshow.com

My friend looked at the rules last night, apparently no handguns to non-VA residents. He didn't see anything about regulated firearms though... I would check the website for more specific details.

I would imagine getting any guns you couldn't cash-and-carry here in MD would be hard (if not impossible) to obtain.

You can legally purchase any non-regulated long gun from an out of state FFL. Whether the FFLs at the gun show will sell to you is another matter altogether.

Wow.... no fun I hope I won't be disappointed. I'm looking for mags and accessories, no guns. I've heard there are JBT's that like to hassle people with MD tags buying hicap mags (from a guy I used to work with). I'm gonna try to lay as low as possible.

Good news is that certain long guns bought in VA by MD residents are cash & carry. For example:

Colt HBar (exempt from the list)
AR-10 (it is NOT a copy of the ar-15 and its not on the list)
.50 cal rifles

Keep in mind that there is a requirement to prove US citizenship for the first two mentioned. Make sure to bring your US passport or you MD voter registration card.

As for whether certain dealers choose to sell to MD - its their right to refuse service to anyone; don't go telling them - save it for Anapollis since its Annapolis' fault for gun control laws.

Dealers pay over $100.00 per Table! That's why you see those inflated mark-ups!
