    DC GUN show

    I have never been but it is Feb 10-12 at the Capital Expo center in Chantilly VA. Will a lot of the gun manufactures have guns on display or is it mostly for used stuff?

    Well it's not called the DC Gun Show for obvious reasons. It's called the Nation's Gun Show and it is held at the Dulles Expo Center. It is one of the largest shows in Virginia with around 1000 tables holding new and used guns, and all sorts of support and other paraphernalia. Generally some very good prices to be had including ammunition. If you're in the market for a new guns, you can expect to see more new ones than used at this show. Expect crowds and lines to get in since it is such a popular show. I usually go on Friday afternoon because Saturday can really be nuts. Parking is very good and plentiful.

    Thanks for the responses. The site that they have only had pics of used guns which is not my thing. I am thinking about a compact 9mm, a revolver, a revolver for the wife and maybe a .22 for target shooting. I will try to go by there on Friday.
