I think there is one coming up this weekend 9/25-9/26- wondering if I should go. How big is it usually? Should I wait for the one at Chantilly next month instead? Thanks.

Chantilly is much better and 2-3 times bigger.

Not very.



Chantilly is the shit, and by that I mean its all that and a bag of chips.

This show in Bealton is NOT the Old Dominion Gun Show show that is usally there. This is the semi-annual Virginia Gun Collectors show. They enforce the no junk and beanie baby table rule. There are also some interesting displays by gun collectors. They cater to more of the collectable guns, Garands and such. There is some modern stuff availible also.

Chantilly will be a better show, but Bealton is the second best in the area, and for me the VGCA show is better then the usual ODGS show in Bealton.

Depends upon what you are looking for. If you are mor einto older military guns then this show is for you, but if you need that new AR-15 with the latest SureFire light then wait until Chantilly. The nice thing about this show is the fact that there are far less dealers than most shows. So basically it is a lot of private sellers.

Chantilly (C&E show) is going to have 1000 tables!
And I can't go due to other activities that weekend.

I'll have to go to the Showplace in Richmond the following weekend.

Well, we're going tomorrow, and hopefully we can pick up some breed of AR-15. Otherwise, I'll have to wait until Chantilly.

No Sir, one done by me at cost since you seem to be a pretty upstanding young man.

It was a decent show. A few amusing things like the "pre ban" Colt A3 for $1750 when 2 tables over Trader Jerry had the LE Carbine version of it NIB for $1050 (and it was tempting, but the wife would of hurt me for buying ANOTHER AR). Some good displays if you like that stuff. I bought some patched and cleaning supplies, but thats it.
