I'd say don't necessarily plan on the gun show having great deals. A lot of vendors are overpriced and prey on the fact people think they are getting a good deal because it's a gun show. Shop on line at Buds or Gunbroker. Shop at a local shop. Compare, compare, compare. Also weigh in the factor of paying a few bucks more to a local shop that you can bring the gun back to if there is a problem versus a gun from Billy Bob's Gun Emporium located in the Anchorage that swings through town once a year for a show.
