    Has anyone been to the Dixie Gun shows in Charlotte? Are they worth going to? It's been years since I have been to a gun show, but I was wanting to stack up some ammo, and shipping online is a bear.

    Is that Dixie Gun Works, the Turner Kirkland company?

    The one at the Merchandise Mart is pretty lame, IMO. I like the outfit that does the one out at Metrolina Fairgrounds. Seems to be better attended and more variety of dealers.

    I have a friend who buys Browning shotguns and he's there every time they're in town. He used to do the outfit who's at the Merchandise Mart but said he got tired of dealing with them. Looks like other vendors followed suit.

    hi , im in NC. just went to the one last week in Raliegh . it was ok , i only go to the DIXIE ONES . i went last year to the Charlotte one and i thought being in Charlotte it would be huge and nice .

    HERE IS THE PROBLEMS I HAD WITH IT

    its in a seedy part of outside town
    its not as big as one in Raliegh
    its in 3 different buildings side by side by side
    they had less guns and more gimmicky crap
    and there was alot more rednecks at this one . im a redneck myself but some of these folks put people of walmart to shame .

    my grade was a F - been once last time . i will stick to the Raliegh show

    YMMV :wavey:
