    Has anyone ever been to the Mid-Atlantic Arms Collectors Show at the Reading Expo Center? How does it compare to the Valley Forge show?

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. That's ok though...I like wandering around gun shows.

    Hmmm, I wonder which dates are right. I found the info on the Mid-Atlantic Arms Collectors website. MAAC I'll shoot them an e-mail and find out for sure.

    So did you ever go?

    It's the same show they use to call "the old Builder Square" building.

    The new name threw me off.I heard the building was sold to a group of doctors who would turn it into offices.

    The show wasn't bad,a few good deals.I walked out empty handed.:sad:

    Nope, I didn't go...yet. It's the 19th and 20th of this month. ;) I do plan on going though as it'll only take me 15-20 minutes to get there.

    I thought about going to the Allentown show this weekend, but decided to pass on it. I just had way too much to do around the house, and I had read on another board that it's not that great of a show...mostly older rifles and whatnot...so I'll check out the Reading show since it's close and then Valley Forge is next month.

    I went bright an early this morning. I wasn't too impressed with the show. It was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Handgun selection wasn't the best, and everything I looked at was overpriced (such as a used 3rd gen G19 for $499...you can buy it new for that price). Rifle wise, decent selection and prices weren't too crazy...no real deals, but most stuff was priced fairly. I came home with a DPMS lower parts kit, Magpul trigger guard, a light and laser (both pressure pad activated) for an AR I'm building. Also picked up a couple holsters for my G26. I didn't get a deal on anything, but the prices on what I bought was inline with what I've seen on-line, and I didn't have to pay for shipping costs.

    I just lost the fuel pump in my work truck and the transmission is slipping.
    SO no guns for me this month since I already spent $1,000 and the trans still needs work.

    The Allentown show is much better than the Reading show. They just brought the Reading show back so it'll take a while before it builds up in size. I heard that a lot of dealers are playing the waiting game with that show.

    Mid-Atlantic Arms Collectors Show

    In my experience, it should be named "Mid-Atlantic Flee Market Show
