Why I Like Gun Shows.
Advertisements [?]
Prices tend to run about 20% lower than in gun stores.

Greater selectionthan in a gun store. If I want a particular gun that is in current manufacture, a gun show will likely have it. A gun store, because of the cost of the inventory, carries a limited selection of the most popular guns. But a gun show has many different dealers and so the inventory is much greater.

Lots of accessory stuff. Books, knives, supplies, camping gear, etc. Usually there will be some crafts tables set up for leather that my wife like to look at. The last one we went to have a gem and mineral display across the hall. It had some awesome fossils.

BTW. I went to my first gun show in 1974. At that one, and at all gun shows since, I have never seen a Nazi table, never seen a KKK table, nor anything of the like. The only Nazi stuff I have ever seen is at a WWII memorabilia tables, which also included Japanese, British, Russian, and American stuff. Usually, there may be an NRA recruiting table.
