I might go just to window shop. Some of my best purchases were the ones I did not plan.

What can one expect from this type of show? I've been to the timonium and Harrisburg shows and both were a waste of time and money, filled with Chinese garbage ar parts and camo socks.

Will vendors have name brand optics and bolt guns etc to look at?

I’d like to get there again. I remember seeing lots if Knives there, does anyone know if they sell autos there? Looking for a Benchmade CLA or would settle for a Kershaw Launch. Can’t find a vendor that will ship one to Md.

Lots of knife tables, some autos - just not sure if they are the brands you’d like

Several mag vendors. Couple seem to focus on AR mags only while some bring quite the variety.

Big room
- in back right a vendor out of TX with wide Variety of mags, mostly pistol
- middle of room, couple columns in from right, lots of AR mags

Small room
- hard to find mags, tend to be $$, center/center
- one column in from left, 1/3 back good pricing on AR mags (they threw in an extra mag when I approached with ‘several’ and had cash in hand)

Last time I went a lady was selling Benchmade knives in the small room, near the center. She had a great selection, though not sure of exact models.

Never been to Harrisburg show, but Timonium I agree, waste of gas. Chantilly is a large show. I have seen plenty of wood and steel bolt guns, can't speak to the optics there. Usually looking for mags or something new. It's worthwhile to go at least once.

The only issue with the show is the $16.00 entrance fee. Parking can be a bear, I have parked over in the Walmart lot far away from the show. Cabella's is not so far away so I usually go there afterwards.
