    The Maryland shows are mostly MD dealers, with a few exceptions. Some (like Precision Firearms) come from neighboring states.

    If you're purchasing a handgun, you'll do your initial paperwork at the show and pick up at the dealer 7 days later. If it's a long gun you'll do the paperwork at the show, the dealer will do a NICS check, and hopefully you won't be delayed and you can leave with your purchase.

    Never been to this one , is it worthwhile? I am looking for a P365 for a project and some Glock & AR parts.
    Ya never know. Someone may have what you want, and then its worth your while. The HoCo show is not a large one. Gettysburg show is bigger, and Nations gun show in Chantilly is even bigger. Since you've not been to one before, my $0.02 is go and enjoy what's there, just don't expect too much.

    Your profile says White Marsh... have you been to a Timonium show? Howard County is usually about the same size.
    Yes, that’s the only one I’ve been to. Been wanting tk go to one of the PA or VA ones just haven’t made it yet. I may stop by this weekend, I appreciate it.

    I might go by tomorrow, any other feed back?

    Ammo prices still stupid?


    Just left. Typical size for HoCo, all the usual vendors are here. I saw overpriced ammo, and I also saw a few vendors with reasonable prices.

    As usual compare prices with South Carroll before buying elsewhere, odds are if they have it, they have a better price on it.
