Lakeland Show

I took a ride up to the Lakeland Show today. The one done by the Lakeland Rifle and Pistol Club. This show is a bit bigger than others I have been to. In addition to dealers it seems there are more enthusiasts and serious collectors. One of the tables had a half dozen 1860 Colt Army revolvers and four 1851 Navy revolvers in addition to a couple dozen others including a few first generation SAAs. Another table appeared to be a Luger guy as he had two racks of a dozen each and a couple of glass cases of them also. a different table seemed minor in comparison as he only had about fourteen Lugers. Seems like I always see something interesting and worth the trip at this one.

I haven't been a big gun show fan but have heard that is a good one. I'm going to check it out next time.

We had a gun show him rochester ny, there was some interesting stuff. 22 ammo was still thru the roof but no one was buying it because Wally World gander and dicks have had it pretty regularly around here. I guess the vendors didn't get the memo. There was some good deals on firearms but some people are out of there minds on what there asking for there stuff. The crowd was pretty light because the weather was pretty good and it won't be long till the snow flies. I enjoyed the show and ran into quite a few people I knew so overall a pretty good day.

I loved the Lakeland show when I lived in new Tampa. In nc the best one I've been to is the Greensboro show.

I have friends in Lakeland. It's less than two hours away, so I should go visit them and go to the show. Do you know when the next one is? And did you see any pistol powders?

This was my first visit to The Lakeland Show, and it's much more impressive than the usual Suncoast shows, some of which are held in the same location in Lakeland.


Seems like a lot more private sellers, and also hobbyists with no intention of selling.

Third weekend in January

There was at least one table with powder but I did not look closely to see what kind it was.

I want to think that most anything is for sale if the price is right. But I agree there were a few guys there who appear to have had no desire to sell. But a couple seemed more than willing to talk and give pointers and advice.
