Oh but there is so much one can do with this thread!
My personal favorite was "big gun station" but we can add:

A new band: "Guns n' Radios"

Modern Shakespeare: " Kill all the Lids"

80 and 20 meter SSB: " It's my frequency- right or wrong"

Or how bout... "Radios don't communicate with people, people communicate with people."

  or... remember that song... "Don't take your radios to town son, leave your radios at home."

    or...  to paraphrase Mae West..."Is that an HT in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?"

      or, best of all,  how bout... "Guns - when all else fails!"

I could see Barney Fife on 75 meters talking endlessly about the importance of keeping your weapon close at hand and modestly pointing out what an impeccable marksman he was  Wink

Just to get back to the original question.  I think Ham at a gun show would draw interest and possibly new members.  The Disaster Preparedness community (Preppers) is always looking for ways to improve their post SHTF communication skills.   Most Preppers are also very much into going to gun shows.   I have read RACES training that could have been taken right out of a Preppers hand book.
I would say go-for-it!

Just currious, has anyone set up a club table at a gun show?
Did you get any interest?

Do you guys think it would be worth while?
My club hasn't, but the Washington County (PA) club, WACOM, has had a club table & operating station set up at their local annual sportsman's show for years.

They've always done quite well with it, but I don't have all the details.  Check their website (www.wacomarc.org if I recall correctly) and see if you can get a straight answer to your question(s) there.

the gun table at a hamfest is a catchy idea but think it through first. Ham tables don't have involved legal issues for just their presence. Licensing and use -- yes -- but setting up a display even with actual gear no. However guns do. Know the state and local laws and requirements before you step into that arena.
