    Anyone know if Blue Customworks will be there to do serial number engraving? Seems to have a lot of satisfied customers.

    80% Serializing & NFA/SBR Engraving
    at Upcoming Gun Shows in MD

    Hi Folks, I'm an FFL Manufacturer and I'll be laser engraving ATF/MD Compliant Serial numbers and NFA engravings at gun shows in MD and by appointment at my workshop in Finksburg.

    Feel free to contact me with questions or to schedule an appointment.

    Upcoming Gun Shows:
    o Feb 4-5 West Friendship, MD
    o Mar 25-26 Crownsville, MD
    o Apr 1-2 Frederick, MD
    o Apr 15-16 Timonium, MD

    It is important for folks to know that the penalty in the state of Maryland for having finished or unfinished frames/receivers without a serial number by March 1, 2023 is a $10,000 fine and 2 years in prison per gun.

    Not a big show but it was worth it for me. Picked up a match rifle rear sight complete with diopter, side receiver mounting plate, a front sight base and a front sight lense for only $60 for all of it. Saw several reasonably priced CMP M1 Garands there.

    Is it legal to CCW to these? I can't find anything stating yes or no online.
    Sign at door. No loaded firearms.

    Sign may not have force of law but getting trespassed from the Fairgrounds for packing at a gun show is sort of stupid from where I sit. Your call. I'd suggest securing your gun in your vehicle while you shop.

    I just got back from the show and they asked me if I was carrying. Another attendee at the show pulled out his gun for a measurement at a table, so I assume they just want it unloaded at the door.

    The show was very small, only about half full. There was a lot of people there around 1:00.

    Previous years had a no loaded firearms sign. They had a table by the entrance for clearing.

    They probably shouldn't be asking but with all the newbs, may be trying to avoid someone pulling out a loaded weapon to show off and trying out holsters.

    I was surprised at the attendance; thought it would be sparser.

    Was tempted on 1000rd PMC X-TAC greentips, but decided to pass. Did see two vendors that had 7.35 carcano ammo. One had surplus. Passed on that also since I don't even shoot my Mosin.

    $10 to MSI and scadattled out the door. Sausage man across from the building was... outrageous at $12 per. I passed on that too.

    Damn cheapskate that I am...
