    Anybody been to this show before? If so, what kind of guns do they usually have there? Pretty much all collectibles?

    I've been to this show before. Last time, Jerry's Trader was the "large" FFL vendor, there were a lot of smaller vendors there (not sure if they were private or FFL).

    I picked up a nice HKp7 PSP last time - I plan to head out this weekend, its a smaller show and wasn't as crowded although I suspect that could be a big change this year...

    I'm definitely going to try and go. If I do, I'll post a trip report.

    For 6 bucks, what the heck. I'll try to make it out. Figure at least if I find nothing I can hit up G&A Warehouse and VA Arms on the way out

    That was my thought. I'll look up the show, then go pester Longwatch and have a donut .

    Well, I went, and I liked it. It was very well attended. It was maybe 1/10 the size of the Expo show but had the same shopper "density". Lots of folks crowding aisles. Lots of M1s and shotguns, and Trader Jerry's had a good portion of the show, as did the book seller who is always at Chantilly. Prices on stuff looked about the same as I see at other shows, but I don't really follow them closely. A few collectors were there showing historical arms, and there were a couple of Vietnam-era restored Jeeps that were really nice. What was really nice was the lack of Nazi stuff and "Death to Obama" type items. I prefer to go to a gun show and enjoy the experience, not to be surrounded by hate.

    I give it an "A", and will go back next time they have it.
