I had not attended any shows for a number of years, but int he past year my sone decided he wanted to buy his first pistol so we tried some of the local shows and it was extremely disappointing.

It seems the local gun shows have turned into places to buy jerky, knives, surplus military uniforms, food, etc... and once it a while you may get lucky to find someone that actually is selling a firearm... but even then it will be some type of AR, a plastic something... or an over priced something else...

All that said, we ended up buying from one of the established FFL Internet dealers and shipping to a local FFL.

It seems like the good days of the local gun shows are gone.

Just my angry rants on this topic, your mileage and experiences may vary...
