    Itís in the exhibition hall this time - easier parking . I prepaid so walked right in at 9 - decent line but not crazy. Ok overall, not great. Picked up a nice 1920 something Stevenís 12 gauge - trench project. Glock and Mag leather holsters and of course two large tubs of pickles .

    I thought about going tomorrow, but I need tires on 2 cars for inspection this month. Probably going to be Christmas time until I buy anything else this year.

    I was going to head up there today, but i work part time at Target and they started some new BS schedule that allows for no family time, and certainly no work life balance. Since the new start time is 2am for some idiotic reason, i will be skipping this show so i can be in bed by dinner time. Hope you guys found something cool there!

    Any other feedback from this show? I stopped going to this one several years ago because of the 150 mile round trip and the decline in size of the show itself. Simply wasn't worth the drive for me.

    It's even less worth it for you now.

    The hall is half full, there's fewer vendors with guns, but there are a few dealers with huge table setups with large selections of new firearms, a couple of them from MD and VA; not sure how that works. Lots of accessories vendors, ammo vendors, a couple of magazine vendors. Nothing like it was 20-30 yrs ago, but what is?

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm not in the market for new firearms, so it doesn't sound like there's much incentive for me to attend. The Oaks show is about as close as it gets to the old Harrisburg shows.
