WAC is very active in protecting Washington gun-owners rights. They make the rules tight for their shows to keep the anti-gunners from scheming with the "gun show loop-hole' rhetoric and they have dealt with Greg Nichols for years...probably instrumental is getting him voted out of office. They spend a bit of money doing this. Unlike the NRA, WAC isn't soliciting contributions ervery three weeks; they do it with funds they get from membership and gun show admission fees.
Thay have also gotten the news media involved with situations that involved Greg Nichols anti-gun movement members trying to do "straw" purchases at WAC shows; and uncovered the anti-gunners tactics of trying to make illegal purchases and sales from the trunks of cars in the fairground's parking lot.
Don't spout off with bs because you're too cheap to pay admission or join the WAC and have a chip on your shoulder. I was a WAC member for nearly 20 years before I moved to MO.
Also, I might add, when I was a member I never paid an admission charge...just pinned my membership card to my jacket and walked in.
Be advised, gun show bargains are a thing of the past. For a great buying experience check out Mary's Guns in Tacoma...small shop with great people.
