I have never bought a gun at a gun show, all the vendors are way overpriced at least what I've seen, have bought some ammo, gun bags, cleaning supplies, beef jerky other than that it's a good way to spend $10 on a Sat or Sun morning and excuse to ride that day.
The shows here have plenty of vendors that are firearm related, takes up two buildings, not many non firearm vendors.

Originally posted by GTX DRIVER: I always enjoy going to the gun shows in Melbourne and Ft Pierce, FL. Mostly just to spend a couple of hours just to look around. Also a good place to pick up a couple cases of 9mm at a good price.
Same, same. I went to the Port St Lucie show yesterday. Seems like the shows around here drop 10% of their vendors and 20% of the crowd every show that goes by.

The shows in NH are really bad. If it wasn't for a friend who gives up vendor passes, paying $9.00 to walk through the door and $6.00 for parking makes it far from worth it. the reloading supplies are priced no better than the local shop I use. Nothing of any interest in older firearms and new is priced no better than the stores in the area every day.
I went to one today, the first time in years. We took my mother in law who is visiting from Russia. We all had a great time. The gun prices I saw weren't too bad. I think online buying is definitely having an influence. At least on the new stuff.
