    Default Gun Show Schedule...

    I am sure someone knows of some gun shows coming up. I think for October there is one for Anchorage/Palmer and Fairbanks but I am not sure when. Does anyone have some information?

    The NRA has a gun show listing that I think is free (as are many of the various sites) but the Alaska shows almost never get listed there.

    I don't know AGCA policy, but...

    Usually several people at each show have a rifle slung with a sign attached to a stick dropped in the barrel, or a sign on a backpack for handguns.

    A suggestion: Often I as a fellow show attendee can't read their sign, because it is bent, wrinkled, or the text is too small. Avoid their mistake, and before you go to the show have someone else take a look while you walk past them 10-15' away with your sign as you will carry it. Don't tell them what the sign says, or what the gun is, and see if they can read and understand the sign.

    Signs with prices and an invitation to make an offer seem to get more interest that leads to actual sales. I have watched off and on while walking through a show and seen not even one inquiry for some popular guns when they have no price noted (think AR-15 during the Great O-Panic of '08). Now they may have sold it right after I turned around, but if it was me I would have a price on the sign.

    Default Fairbanks Gun Show

    The gun show in Fairbanks is on October 17 and 18 at the Patty Center on the UAF Campus.

    Saturday from 10-6
    Sunday from 10-4

    You are welcome to bring your own guns to sell, you just have to check them at the front desk.
