    the valley forge gun show at KOP pa isnt nearly as big as the shot show, but it is usually pretty impressive

    I'm pretty sure there's one at the Westchester County Center in White Plains this weekend.

    Give them a call to double check

    Back from the gun show, my first.
    OK, first thing is this had huge attendance (compared to shows i've attended for other hobbies at the same place). Almost couldn't walk.
    Lots of knives...
    Lots of guns, new and used. Used prices seemed pretty good, but that might depend on exactly what you wanted - I looked mostly at revolvers.
    One vendor selling reloading supplies and while he a lot of stuff didn't have what I wanted...didn't have the first three powders I asked for, no 9mm brass and one bullet to pick from. And this was withing 2 hours of the 2 day show's opening. Can't say prices were great, but not terrible.
    Found a couple of XDm magazines priced less than Gander Mountain but well above mailorder and big macho gun guy couldn't discount them because the 'girl back at the office' wasn't actually in the office this weekend.

    Ended up getting some cases to put my reloads in and that was it. Very disappointing. But you don't know if you don't go.

    BTW, do you need an FFL to buy powder and primers wholesale? Perhaps there's a buck to be made selling reloading supplies around here and at shows.

    I think the two largest ones i know of are both collectors guns - i e mostly older models not the brand new just made guns
    that is at Louisville KY and the OGCA in ohio.
    the OGCA is the largest private gun club in usa. you have to become a member to buy a gun there and know a member to visit and join.

    good point though - that should be a separate thread for members to list their biggest shows in their area
