First and foremost, we want you to join us in our commitment to safety. The unintentional (NEGLIGENT) discharge of a firearm can have severe consequences. No one thinks this is going to happen to them, or they may think that they are too smart for it to happen to them. The next time you talk to someone who had a negligent discharge, or was in a car crash, or even tripped and fell, ask them "Did you think that was going to happen to you?" You can guess the answer.
It's easy to make sure it doesn't happen to you.Keep your finger OFF the trigger! Generally, there is no reason to have your finger on the trigger of a firearm at a gun show. Every time you handle a firearm, you should open the action to ensure it is unloaded. Again, keep your finger OFF of the trigger, and keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Look in the chamber to be sure there is not a cartridge there.
We support Ohio Hunter Education for young and old alike. Whether you hunt or not, attending a hunter education course is a great way to learn safe gun handling, and courses are normally free.
Hours: Our show hours (all locations) are 9-5 on Saturday, 9-3 on Sunday.
Admission: Since 2008 we have kept our admission at $4. Due to rising costs, the price of admission will increase to $5 beginning in 2013. Folks who are 12 years old and younger always get in free. If you join the NRA or renew a membership at the show, you'll get in free.
With each paid admission you get one entry into a gun drawing. We give away a new firearm at every show. Depending on availability, it may be a Marlin .22, a Harrington & Richardson Pardner shotgun, or another quality firearm. Particpants need not be present to win, so long as we can read your phone number. Additional terms and conditions for the gun drawing are posted next to the bucket where your entry goes. On the drawing entry you'll see a question asking how you heard about the show. We ask because we want to know where our advertising is working, so you can find out about the next show.

Simply click on the like button and the next time we have a show coming up, you'll be notified through Facebook. Of course, we still want you to keep visiting our web site; Facebook is just one more way of finding out about our shows.
Additionally, you may want to provide your e-mail on your entry to the gun drawing. We are experimenting with e-mail notification of upcoming shows. We will not sell or give away your e-mail address, nor will we send you dozens of stupid jokes every day. Your e-mail will only be used to notify you of upcoming shows. Please note that we are testing this concept, and may or may not continue with it; don't depend solely on e-mails to find out about the next show. This web site is the most reliable method of learning our schedule.
Heritage Gun Shows is committed to giving you the most for your gun show admission. We make every effort to keep our admission price reasonable. We believe the shooting sports should be accessible to all, and especially want to encourage families to enjoy our shows and the shooting sports as a family.
Patrons will not be permitted to stand at the entrance of the show or just beyond the admission table and try to deal with everyone walking in. Yes, you can buy, sell or trade inside the show, but you cannot stand out front and grab up every good deal that’s headed into the show. If you want to deal, rent a table; all the other dealers did.
By entering our show, you agree to adhere to all federal, state and local laws, as well as show regulations. Please review the Regulations page of this site. Included there are some of the applicable laws.
Further, by entering the show you agree to hold harmless Heritage Gun Shows from any and all liability for any theft, damages, losses, or injuries incurred while at the show. Heritage Gun Shows accepts no responsibility or liability for any damages or injuries resulting from an exhibitor’s or patron’s display or actions.
We believe in fair dealing. Merchandise or services should never be misrepresented. Also, we encourage patrons to report inappropriate, improper or suspicious behavior. We can’t do anything about it if we don’t know.
We hope your experience at our shows is enjoyable. Please feel free to send your comments to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
