BUY, SELL, TRADE is our motto but when bringing your gun to the show, it MUST be unloaded, checked by an officer at the entrance and secured with a plastic tie strap. This includes Concealed Weapon Permit holders., in accordance with the Florida laws. No loose ammo is permitted in the show. You are permitted to bring a gun(s) into the show for the purpose of appraisal, sale, trade or for accessories. We have a two gun maximum limit. No merchandise is permitted to be brought in by cars. We have a security man who will check it and then secure it with a plastic tie strap that will prohibit the fun from firing. You MUST make sure the gun is unloaded prior to entering the show and also empty any loaded magazines and leave the ammunition in your vehicle. Even if you are a concealed weapon permit holder! Safety is our number one priority and we have a zero tolerance policy. You will be immediately ejected should you break this rule.

The Suncoast Gun Show is a one-stop shop where you will enjoy an enormous array of firearms, ammunition, shooting, supplies, holsters, carry cases, range bags, hunting gear and concealment products. For the knife collects, we have several knife dealers including custom knife makers, and sharpeners.
