    What is a good website for gun shows?

    I have yahooed it, but all the websites do not seem professional.

    Is there a multiple listing service for gun shows?

    Anyone know of upcoming gun shows or conventions open to anyone? Preferably in the northeast in a gun friendly state like Pennsylvania. Or even Virginia. I must take a trip there soon.

    I have. The websites that pop up look so amateurish. Its like there are stuck in the AOL/geocities/tripod era with their presentation

    That's what they looked like back when I used to go to. I used to live in Albuquerque and gun shows were always at the convention center sonid just check the convention center schedule.

    Gun shows used to be cool, I remember back in the day going with my dad and all the shit was there. Everything...every mode from every company.

    Last time I went to one, prices were outrageous, there were beef jerky stands everywhere and even one stand that would
    Make you a t shirt with any type of dog on it. So you could be like: oh make me a red shirt with a welsch corgi on it!!!.

    Whenever I find something I really want it's pretty overpriced although I got a good sig 228 years back for 500 dollars otd and a browning overunder for like 650.00 but that was a loooong time ago.

    Last one I went to I had a list of things I wanted to get and they had nothing.

    Honestly anything in MD or DC is going to suck. Shitty jewelry and snacks with a few overpriced guns. You may luck into something but that's probably rare. The last one I went to in VA was years ago. It was in central park. It was a little better than the MD shows but not by much. I quit going to gun shows. It used to be fun to go hang out for the day and look around. Not so much anymore.

    I've been to the one in Fredericksburg and the one in Timonium....neither were very good. Maybe they got better....who knows. I quit going to shows because there weren't any real good deals there and 50% of the place was filled with things other than guns. It sucks because gun shows used to be really enjoyable.

    If this is the Small Arms Review East show it should be on the better end of gun shows. The one year I went was easily the best I've seen.

    I've only been to crossroads one. Never saw any deals on new stuff I considered to be good. In the future I'll just go for the interesting stuff to look at and people watching. I've only ever gotten a rifle case there, nothing else.

    Last one I went to was SAR and crossroads. It was cool but again just for looking. Shit was insanely overpriced. Battle arms was there though so they had some cool display builds.

    It's hard to beat online pricing now for most anything. I've picked up a few boxes of hard to find ammo over the years. This about it.
