Gun shows nowadays

8272 135
It has been a long time since I have been to a gun show. The last gun show I went to I was VERY disappointed. There were a lot of Knick knack tables...flea market type of items. I have been reading that a lot of this has been cleaned up.

But I think my biggest disappointment was paying $10 or $15 per person to get in and finding that everything in the show was VERY over priced. It was during the time that gun sales and prices were through the roof but I could have driven to an LGS just down the road and paid considerably less for the ammo and guns that were for sale.

So I am curious if all of this has changed or will it be more of the same?? I remember a day ( loooong time ago ) where you could go to a gun show and find deals on things you were looking for.

The worst part is the non gun junk to me. Scentsy candles, some survival gizmo, clothes, purses, etc. There seems to be less and less guns at every show I got to.

Gun shows these days are for uneducated buyers and impulse purchases. I think the only thing worth going for is to find something somewhat uncommon, but not highly valuable.
