Q: Is the Club Swap Meet open to the public?
A: The DSRPC Club Swap Meet is NOT open to the public. As always, Club members may bring guests (up to 4). Guests must be accompanied by their host member at all times. Non-family guests will be charged the usual guest fee ($5) at the gate, since ranges will be in use.
Q: How do I sign up for a table for the Swap Meet?
A: Stop by the Range Safety Officer shack at the range. Bring ten bucks per table (maximum of one per member) and pick out your spot on the Swap Meet layout sheet. We will make every effort to assign you your picked location but the layout may change based on the total number of tables. You must be a Club member to reserve a table.
Q: Will there be food to buy at the swap meet?
A: Once again, the fabulous Ricochet Cafe will be serving hot java, donuts, chips, hot dogs, cold water and soda at popular prices. All proceeds from food sales will go to the Club’s Youth Shooting programs. There will be seating for Cafe customers so you can enjoy sharing a cup of Joe and swapping lies with your fellow club members.
Q: Can I use a check, credit/debit card or Bitcoin to pay for tables, food, guests, and member items for sale?
A: No, nope, no sir, no ma’am, no way, no how.
Q: Can I buy and/or sell my personal firearms at the swap meet?
A: Yes, you can. Private gun sales would have been banned effective January 1, 2017 due to the passage of Ballot Question 1 in November 2016. However, the Nevada Attorney General has published an opinion explaining why this law is unenforceable and stating that it cannot be implemented. See http://www.nevadacarry.org/universal-background-checks.html for up to date info on this.
Q: Can I legally sell firearms stuff to out-of-state residents?
A: Possibly, depending on Nevada and the state in question’s laws, but we’re not lawyers and we don’t play one on T V. If you’re unsure about the legality of selling ammunition, magazines or firearms to someone, err on the side of caution… don’t do it.
Q: Are “Blue Cards” (registering handguns with Metro) still required in Nevada?
A: No they are not. However, we do recommend using a Bill of Sale to document transfers of ownership. Blank Bills of Sale will be provided at the swap meet for Buyer and Seller Use. Some sellers ask for Nevada ID and/or a CCW. That’s not a bad idea.
Q: Can I Open Carry at the Club Swap Meet?
A: NO, Open Carry is NOT allowed at the swap meet. While DSRPC is a strong supporter of the right to carry openly, we do recognize that a large number of unsecured firearms may present a safety hazard in crowded, tightly confined areas. Therefore, Open Carry is not allowed in the Swap Meet building . All firearms on display at the Swap Meet must be unloaded and either:
a) be secured with a nylon zip tie that prevents accidental discharge of the firearm or
b) if a rifle, have the bolt removed. Open Carry is still fine anywhere else on the DSRPC range.
Q: Can I sell non-shooting related items at the swap meet?
A: Yes, you can sell the Trump sock puppets that Aunt Edna gave you last year. Just use common sense… that set of Harry Reid Peg-Leg Pirate Eye Patches collecting dust in the garage is not likely to be a hot item.
