Is this show worth going to? Any other shows in the area worth going to? I'm just looking to gawk at some guns and maybe buy some ammo and hopefully some AR15 crap. I'd like to avoid ending up at a total flea market (beef jerky, beanie babies, etc).

Thanks

Its worth going if you don't have to drive to far. Lots of stuff to look at but hardly any bargains. Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky!!

They've just recently started having them again which is a good thing since Fort Washington has stopped allowing the MAAC show (and any other gunshow for that matter) in their facility.  There were some nice weapons to gawk at the last time and I actually found some decent prices on AR parts.  You will be able to get some jerky and a beanie baby if you want though.  Still, It's the only show in the area now, so if you don't support it then you won't have to worry about how good it is.  Go and check it out.  I'm sure you'll walk away with something.

Anyone have directions?  Location? Website?

All I know about Valley Forge is I have to get on the NE-Extension and go south[:(]

You might be able to get decent directions out of one of them, at least you'll know where you're going.
