The rifle was not tied.Was the rifle tied? In the shows that I do, all firearms must be tied using plastic ties to keep the action from functioning. Magazines are also removed as they have a tendency to grow legs and walk away.
The Minnesota Weapons Collectors shows in this state require the zip ties - this particular event was not an MWCA show. The MWCA also mandates any show attendees have any firearms checked and tied before they can go in. Long time ago I was doing that and remembered to tell the fellow manning the check point (before I opened the action) that I had a snap cap in the chamber.
He thanked me for saving him from a heart attack.
