Gun shows nowadays

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.

I agree about the Virginia area gun shows being pretty decent, especially compared to the Texas, Arizona and California shows I have attended over the years.

The gun shows that I went to in and around the Fairfax, VA area (Dulles convention center) are pretty darn good. Large displays of new and used guns, ammo, accessories. Decent pricing too.

The San Antonio, TX gun shows are rather disappointing with the exception of vintage SW and Colt revolvers.
