Definitely not. I've left the show multiple times with antique revolvers in excellent condition for less than $300 each. All depends on what you're looking for and having the patience to scour every table.

There is a decent mix of high end stuff and some more moderate and lower end pieces. I've picked up long guns and pre-1898 handguns in the 200-300 range there... but yes, if you want to mortgage your house and come home with a $200K museum piece, they can accommodate that too :-)

If you shoot obsolete calibers, it is a good place to find odd-ball ammo too.

If you're a first timer- look at the license plates on your way in- They will be from all over the country, not just MD, PA, VA, DE and WV. This will give a better concept of how prestigious this show is to antique firearms collectors.

Only a few more days left!

I’ll be set up in Row “F”, Table #14 with a lot of nice goodies from Switzerland. When you get to the show Saturday or Sunday, stop by and say hi!

I’ve never had a problem, but I usually get there early. The parking lot is pretty big, and they have people who direct you where to park

Last year I noticed so many people had miniature flintlocks with no gunflints. After asking people why there's no gunflints in their miniature flintlocks they told me nobody makes them that small. So that night I made about a dozen of them and went back on Sunday to spread them around. So if you see a miniature flintlock on display and it has a real flint in it, it's possibly one of mine.
