According to the event website, all federal, state and local firearm ordinances and laws must be obeyed. Private collectors are welcome. Hand gun buyers are instructed to have pistol permits ready. NCIS and FBI background checks are required on long gun sales and Michigan CPL holders, with CPL's dated before November 22, 2005. I have no idea what any of that means, but if you are educated about guns and gun ownership, I am sure you do.

If you are bringing a firearm into the show, per the event Facebook page - these steps must be followed,

  • Bring the firearm in with no ammunition in the weapon.
  • Notify security if you have any ammunition. They will check in all ammunition as you enter.
  • Have firearm inspected and safety strapped so that it may not operate inside the show.
  • Be sure to stop back and retrieve ammunition on your way out of the show. All straps on firearms may be removed at that time. The only exception to this rule is if you are a police officer with badge and I.D. Or an officer on duty in uniform.

If you can't make it out this weekend for some reason, the Lapeer Gun & Knife Show is scheduled for Friday, April 30th, and Saturday, May 1st, at the Lapeer Center Building.
