Dumb question, but I've made this mistake before...this is at the armory, which is the castle downtown...NOT where the cannons are near Moores Mill, correct?

Yes (there are no dumb questions)

History

The structure. which resembles a castle, was built in 1915 of Port Deposit granite. At that time, it became the home of local National Guard units which served the country in several wars. In April of 1984, the building received minor restorations and was dedicated and named in the honor of late Lt. Gen. Milton A. Reckord. In August of 2004, the Armory was obtained by the Town of Bel Air and the work of renovating the building and turning it into the top-notch facility that it is today began.

There are two separate organizations that hold small gun shows in Bel Air. The Izaak Walton League holds their show each February in the Armory, while the other group held theirs more recently in the VFW.

I have not seen any vendor with a good supply of regular reloading supplies/equipment. Small local dealers will have miscellaneous quantities of bullets, second-hand die sets, and perhaps some primers. A lot of it looks like things the vendor picked up in trade, as part of an auction lot or estate sale, etc. I have had some decent finds in the past (100rd. boxes of 168gr. .30 cal sierra matchkings for $20, RCBS .30spl/.357mag 3-die carbide set for $25). What I am leery of is the vendors who are selling reloads of unknown origin, and astonishment that people buy them for use. I want to caution people that unknown reloads are not safe, but hardly want to alienate the vendors by doing so in front of them.

Aside from vendors, I found it rather neat that there was a fellow who got a table to show off his collection of historical military rifles and chat with interested visitors, and another fellow who always has a couple tables to display his collection of WWII Japanese and German artifacts. The second fellow always has his P38 and P08 lugers on display, often ornamental german daggers, and last time a complete WWII German uniform.

I'm going to head up Saturday. Might bring my 20 gauge Wingmaster, Brazilian mauser, or Yugo M48 to trade.

Belair Gun Show

I like to support local shows but come on now-$10 admission? I spent all of 30 minutes there and it will be my last time. Can see a show 10X its size in PA for the same admission.

I have to admit. For it being Bel Air, it was a decent show. But come on. Trump is in office. The scare is over. Bring your prices down to a reasonable amount. I got there a little after 5pm. Dave (Blue Fin) said they opened the doors a little early. The crowd was decent, some people don't know how to walk in a gun show. But I've got to tell ya, I thought the prices for the most part were high. A lot of junk dealers, it looked like some had cleaned out their basements to sell at this show.

I do agree, $10 for this show is nuts. But, I paid it so who do I have to blame?

Looking forward to the Howard County show tomorrow!

Plenty of old shotguns. Not sure what was there, but a bunch of old shotguns. However, I don't believe you're going to find any deals. Most of the prices were high.

Good luck to ya!
