    I'll be set-up there this weekend, selling ammo and guns and some "new old stock" items.

    This is a show I'd love to see.
    The 150-170 table shows are some of my favorites.
    I hope to be in the area someday when this goes down , because at over 4 hrs away above Scranton ............ I'm out.
    If you could convince them to hold off until mid June , I'm in.
    I bet there's a pile of new yorkers there buying OUR stuff.

    Where else do you set up pagunparts?
    Do you do Morris?

    I rarely do PA gunshows anymore.
    Since I live up in NEPA, I mostly do NY and New England gun shows.
    There are less shows there than in PA, so I find those venues better for me to sell at.

    I'll be at the "Thompson, PA" show only because it's so close to home.

    How many shows do they do a year? Two?
    I've gone as far east as Split Rock and as far North as the Roulette show.
    Both are a little over the 3 hour drive time , and about my limit for gun show travel anymore.
    I know Scranton is a good 4 hours from me.
    Might try and plan for an over nighter sometime for that area.
    What would you say is your main type of thing for sale.
    I see your screen name but that could be a few different genres

    I started 30+ years ago selling gun parts in general for the newest modern pistols etc. ( ie I was one of the 1st vendors selling "Glock" parts. I remember hearing the phrase at shows "What's a Glock" ). Time moves on and I got a little into everything gun related - ammo, surplus and/or of course firearms. Several year back, I ventured into AR-15/AK-47 parts and accessories. With the evolution of so many other AR parts resellers, I've branched into just magazines and the like. Who knows, I'm considering going back to just parts again for the top firearms out there - 1911, beretta, 10/22, sig, etc....

    Saturday show report card.

    Light traffic, but in all, I had a great show. Sold a few rifles, moved some ammo and a few "NOS" items like scopes and old holsters, etc...

    There was a good mix of stuff for anyone who attended, minus reloading items

    Rain in the afternoon, didn't help and/or hurt the event.

    Sunday mornings going to be clear, with rain starting after lunch ( it'll rain the hardest when the shows over and we have to pack = go figure !! )

    Don't just sit at home, get out and hit the show.

    If not, I'll see everyone down the line, whether I'm behind the tables and/or looking at your stuff at another show.

    Sunday show report card.

    No rain again all day, during the show hours. It however really poured down right at 3pm. ( Got soaked to the core while hooking up my trailer and backing into the building !! )

    Again, it was light customer attendance, the few that did show up during the day were buyers ( at least for me that is ). Sold a few more boxes of ammo, plus two more rifles.

    Memorial Day weekend at a gun show is just one way of honoring those who gave all.

    My "Thanks" goes out to all of you that have served this great country.
