This weekend is the last for the Saxet Gun Show at the Travis County Expo Center.

It’s been held there since 2010 but county commissioners have decided that private gun owners who sell to collectors must run a background check on the buyers the way the larger licensed dealers do.

Saxet says that is a small part of their show and impractical to arrange so the county decided not to offer an extension on Saxet’s contract which runs out after this weekend.

Saxet says it would welcome relocating to another large venue in the area but those choices are limited and so far no word on any deal.
