I went a while back and wasn't impressed. Lots of wall hanger guns, old ammo, and AR parts. Not much in the modern stuff. Very small and VERY CROWDED.

Yeah, that's the shtick with these local shows. It's just a fundraiser to keep the lights on, high entry price for low square feet/small amount of vendor ratio.

It's a good way to support local and waste some time.

Some people like all the obscure stuff, but don't expect to see mostly storefront FFLs with new/used firearms for sale.

A lot of personal collection stuff that looks to like it was hauled out of basements, not even dusted off and still has the same price tag they stuck on it 20 years ago.

We've done that show for the past 2 years and took most, if not all, of our inventory. We'll probably go again this year. The pit BBQ is awesome!

I have never been dissatisfied with this gun show. I have found something cool there each of the past two years. However, a lot of the same vendors also are at the Bel Air Armory gun show, so if you've been to that, that's the kind of stuff at this show. I will probably go with my son and look for milsurp rifles, old ammo, and beater Remington Model 11 shotguns.

I try to go every year for 1 thing. They usually have a military display or table, which is manned by a couple of grunts. I make sure I'm there around lunch time and ask if I can buy them lunch. The second year I was there the people running the food concessions bought them their lunch after one of the soldiers told them what I was doing. Since then, I've been able to do this for the service members. It's the least I can do.

Best part is that there are never cheap socks, heating pads, and Bath Fitter vendors!!!

This is just down the road from us and there's often interesting stuff to look at. I like the fact that we have a local gun show so will always try to support it.

Sure, I'll bring mine and we can meet there. How does $1500 sound?

I'll sell you my bumpfire stock for $900. It will even come with an unfired Saiga 12G mounted to it.

Oh yeah, the show is worth going to just to get the pit beef.
