What's the Fishersville Gun Show Like?

    Just moved into the Charlottesville area from Richmond and am wondering how the Fishersville show compares to either of the Richmond shows.

    Fishersville is a Showmasters show like the RIR show. RIR caters more to the antique arms rather than modern firearms. Is that true of the Fishersville show?

    I'm in need of a gun show fix!

    Thanks for the info.


    :cool:

    Hey Russ,

    The Fishersville show is smaller than either of thr Richmond shows - has a mix of old & new. Some military, some junktiques...

    It used to be a good little show, went way down hill, and now that C&E/Showmaster has taken it over, is working on getting better.

    Volunteer to cover a VCDL table shift and get in for free. (I'm the regional coordinator :wavey: )

    Don't plan a day around it - you can see the whole show in less than an hour if you don't stop/talk to many tables.

    Still, having said that - folks from C'ville look forward to the Showplace show down in Richmond for a good/big show.

    Hope this helps,
    Bob S.

    Been YEARS since I went to a show in the Expo Hall. Posted on it in GNG BRIEFLY in the "Best Gunshow Memory" thread, since it was a special day spent with dad that can NEVER be repeated or recreated now. Had a great variety of stuff. I got a couple AR-15 maggies and two G-17 +2 maggies


    And welcome to the area. I am in Sherando, just over the hill from ya.

    Any of the shows I would be available for I would also like to help on the VCDL table. And not just to get in.

    EDIT TO ADD: The change of ownership is maybe why I stopped getting the cards. I was on the mailing list and got a card every time the Fishersville or Harrisonburg shows came up
