The Gun Show Almanac

New York State Arms Collectors Association, Inc.

Show Manager

New York requires all firearms sales at gun shows to be processed by a licensed dealer. Prospective purchasers are subject to the same background check process that applies to retail firearm transfers and all dealers processing transactions must record the transfer, retain the transfer records for 10 years, and make the records available to law enforcement. A National Instant Criminal Background Check must be completed prior to all firearm sales or transfers, including sales or transfers of rifles or shotguns.

We thank all of you for your dedication and support the past 55+ years of Syracuse shows and pray that we can get back to something close to “normal” for 2021. None of us could have dreamed something like this pandemic could happen and bring so many things to a halt, but we’ll strive to get back to succeeding in the near future.

Please, everyone take care, stay safe and well, and God Bless y’all.
