    Assuming you have no PA LTCF or professional exemption, you would need to garner an exception from 18 Pa CS 6106(b). Presumably your purpose is to sell the shotgun - yes? If so you may well qualify for:

    6106(b)(8) Any person while carrying a firearm which is not
    loaded and is in a secure wrapper from the place of purchase
    to his home or place of business, or to a place of repair,
    sale or appraisal or back to his home or place of business, ...
    A word of caution - since you are from NJ you MUST use an FFL at the show to officiate any sales. You cannot do a FTF private sale to any non-NJ resident.
