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 partially agree. Last weekend i went to the Fort Myers Fl. Gun show. Nothing like a good Florida gun show. Used to charge “ i believe” free to park and maybe $3 to $4 entree fee. Now $5 to park and VA card discount of $1 down from $11 to $10. I have bought many many firearms, holsters, ammo, tee shirts, stickers, you name it, even ice cream BUT its not worth the cost any longer. The good is, a Florida gun show is some of the best I've ever seen but the cost of going will have me passing on many starting this weekend.

I thought the Fort Myers gun shows were huge but yours definitely is bigger, way bigger.
