Worth going to?

Is this one any good to go to? Newbie here! Plenty of AIRMS but no arms.

It's about the biggest show in Maryland. But that's not saying much. A lot of non-firearm related items. Go, if you've never been. But there are better shows out of state (PA and VA).

Thanks Jim, I'll take heed to that!

It's a hit-or-miss show, and can vary in size.

Although, the last couple have had more new dealers than I've seen in a couple years.

That's not saying much. How many could that be (real dealers), 8 to 10 at the most?

Remember, this is the show where one of our members, almost got arrested for trying to give away a free $1 discount coupon.

I haven't been back since.

Haven't counted... just noticing a lot of new names.

As always, caveat emptor and YMMV...

I agree with Mr. H. Timonium can be hit or miss, it's close, but it is kinda small. Likewise, the Gettysburg show can be hit or miss although it's a bit of a drive from Harford County. I got some odds & ends at the last Howard County show. It's a little over an hour from my home in Harford County. York can be kind of nice: I usually spend too much there & it's only 45 minutes away. Oaks is the biggie (two hours of Pa. highway driving). I've bought a lot of ammo there & the family's bought several large ticket items. Lastly, I like Lebanon. Yes, it's a good hour & a half away, smallish, but we always find something (and Shyda's Gun shop is really close, but closed Sundays). Also, the catering is good & reasonable! Whew, I'm done.

The Howard County Show has been OK. I think the prices coming down on ammo might make it worthwhile. I picked up an upper for my last build there. Prices on firearms are all over the map... due diligence is a must! I go here because it's only 30 minutes away.

The York show in PA is the one I save up for. I've purchased several long guns here. Almost bought a nice Mossberg 590, but it was gone by the time I came back around. Mags are a must at this show.

I'll make it down to the Nation's show in Chantilly one of these days.

The Timonium show stopped being enjoyable several years ago. With York, Gettysburg and Harrisburg relatively close by, there's no need for me to go anywhere else, except occasionally the 3-day Oaks Extravaganza.
