I've stopped going to the local "open to the public" gun shows for the reasons stated above; plus too much jerky is bad for my diet.

OTOH, I have been a member of the Ohio Gun Collectors Association for several years. OGCA is, I believe, the largest collector club in the country, and their shows are light years ahead of the public offerings. If your area has a members only collector club, it might be worth your time and energy to join.

One of my favorite aspects of OGCA is the large number of authors of gun history who are members. Want to know something about Astras, Marlin lever guns, Thompsons? There is the guy who literally wrote the book on that particular firearm, at a table two rows over.
