    Does anyone know the date and locale of the next gun show? I'm from Baton Rouge but there is usually a show within 50 miles every week or two. Thanks in advance.

    This is out of your territory, but there are two pretty good (and many sorry) gun shows in Shreveport/Bossier each year.

    The two good ones are hosted by the ArkLaTex Gun Collectors Assoc. and held at Expo Hall at 400 Clyde Fant Parkway (near the S'port casinos).

    One is in the spring (March 19 & 20) and the other is in the fall (Sept. 17 & 18), per the flyer I recently picked up. $5 entry fee; park at the casino garage for free.

    How does one get a sticky posted? Do we beg the moderator? Also, with Lamar Dixon on the blocks for sale, I wonder if the gun shows will still be there.

    That list has lots of "Great Southern" shows, but I know there are other shows that hit this area, such as the two I mentioned above (ArkLaTex Gun Collectors Assoc.), that are not on that list.

    The other shows must not sign up for listing on the site you found.

    It is a good idea to post all known LA shows. Does anyone else have a list of LA shows other than the ones mentioned above?

    Maybe we can put our resources together and compile a comprehensive list for all LA shows.

    Since stickyness is out of the question, I'll post replies from time to time to keep the gun show schedule on line, unless you'd like me to cut and paste it from time to time in another thread. By the way Remander, if you get an update on the AkLaTex shows or any other northern La shows, please post them here and everyone and myself will love you. Great Southern Gun and Knife show kinda has a monopoly down here. If I find any other Gun shows here in La, I'll post away.

    Later,
