I was thinking about this today. Is there anyway to purchase a handgun at a gun show and walking out with it? I know this sounds like a troll question, but I was seriously wondering it. The wife and I have purchased pistols before at a local gun show, and it was never a worry about getting them that day because it works out that a week later there is another gun show 40 minutes away that pretty much every vendor from the first show attends. We usually pay for the gun at the first one, and pick up our gun at the second.
At the end of the month we are going to be down state and wanted to stop in to the show in Poughkeepsie. Since we are only going to be there for one day and it a long haul away, I was just wondering if it was even worth going since we would most likely be stuck with shipping fees or a long drive to pick up the gun anyway.
