    Default What is the largest gun show in PA?

    Hey guys, I was wondering, what is the largest gun show in PA? I know about the Great American Outdoor show but I was under the impression there weren't many tables with used guns, surplus, etc. for sale.

    I don't know about largest, Harrisburg was largest last time I was there, like 25 years ago but Oaks gets rave reviews these days.
    If it ain't broke it ain't mine.

    At this point in time, the Oaks shows have the largest number of tables and compare to many nationally famous shows. The GAO is for show/display more than sales. I don't know if they even have any.

    The old Valley Forge was the best.

    the three day "extravaganza" show held twice annually 08-10 Feb and 20-22, Dec 2019 are the largest with both the halls open and ~ 15-1700 tables, the regular shows run about 1000 tables and are on par with the Harrisburg, York and Allentown shows. The Great Outdoor Show is just that... a show, no firearms sales or transfers , just accessories, still a great day to look and fondle new gear. Luckily I live about an hour from all of them

    I have always taken the afternoon off and did the big Oaks show on Friday afternoon, but you must hustle to see it all in 3-4 hours, I always leave with a lighter wallet and heavier truck

    Oaks in December. GAOS is large, but it's not a venue for purchasing firearms.

    The Harrisburg shows are a mere shadow of their former selves. Check out reviews on this forum. There are other shows that were great in the past, but the Oaks show is currently the biggest and best. For antique firearms the Allentown Forks of the Delaware is a close second.
