I own firearms. Bitter sweet this is. Gun owners have rights and should stand up for them. Our Czar Andy here in NY is pissing all over us for sure. Just feel bad for all the local business owners that rely heavily on those dollars which would have been spent locally.

We need to get all the conservative voters from Ny to move to Wyoming valley PA. Maybe then we can get a decent president. Heavily democratic there .


As of last night there were 162 vendors out. They said normally there are over 1200. I am sure there will be more not showing up as well.

... I actually called them looking for answers...
and I suggest everybody on the site should too
first of all I have no idea why some event planner based out of the United Kingdom has any say in a sport show as far as policy.
for what its worth... after being hung up on the first call...
they could not tell me whether or not any vendors have pulled!
... what a crock of *censored*
.. secondly I was told to go to the shows website.


" will there be a list of vendors on the website I ask the girl"
... probably not she said!!
I I think everybody should call them... but be patient... as they are experiencing heavy call volume is at the moment!!! lol!
... thank God Cabelas it's a 20 minute drive for me!!





that number is just a answering service for them you can't even leave a message




ALSO here is there face book page post a comment on the ban... please be nice about it :roll:

Good. I hope they fold.

Anyone without enough of a spine to stand up to the short-sighted, left-wing mission of banning a type of firearm because it's "scary", doesn't deserve any business from those who believe in the Constitution.

The Pa Lottery is already a done deal from what I understand the question is what next the State Stores or the Pa. Turnpike (first in the country). He doesn't raise the tax, just cuts funding so others have to & fees, tolls & royalties don't count they would never pass on higher costs to the consumer. And all along I was thinking no one could be worse that Toll Gate Ed.

Your right, sorry Richard just commenting on what others have said, it's all the same state & Gov., I guess I mistakenly thought that the Gov. would have some input on such a large venue.

... Really ?
...Did you call it?

... my point was RayJay...I did...
... and I totally got the runaround...( from a complete idiot but a live operator nonetheless)

the people that work for this event planner can't even be straight to people about what's going on with 1 of their own events
... and for what its worth... what was allowed to be at that show for vendors is specifically outlined in their agreement when they contract booth space... and the organizers have basically changed their minds.... ultimately I would love to see all the vendors that have pulled out sue the planners .

I believe when companies pull *censored* like this - banning a TYPE of gun because it's in the news - they're siding with the president and the left. If they were on our side, they wouldn't have done so in the first place.

Places like that - Wal-Mart, Dick's Sporting Goods, et.al. - won't get another nickel from me.
