Hello All,

A while back I remember seeing an August date for the Norfolk Gun Show. Their website is down so I was wondering if any of you know when it is, assuming they're still having it.

Regards,

Zip

***EDITED TO ADD*** I did a quick check of the www.vcdl.org website and couldn't find any indication of this show being held. I even looked at all the show promoter's websites listed on the page. I wish there were a show, I need some .45 ACP.

I have a feeling it's cancelled. Local guys like the Armory said there was no gun show in Norfolk and they usually set up at the local shows. I checked with Georgia Arms and it's not on their schedule either.here
The Norfolk Show was small compared to others, but there is a big void of shows in Hampton Roads in the late summer. I guess it's off to F-burg or Richmond.

Georgia Arms is scheduled to be at:
Roanoke 8/19-20
Hampton 9/16-17
Salem 9/23-24

Hello Folks,

This is a reply I received from a link on the Norfolk Gun Show website (cached).

There will not be a Norfolk Gun Show in 2006. Scheduling conflicts have eliminated the 2006 schedule, but we are setting a date in February to begin again. We have merged this show with C&E Gun Shows and will operate the Norfolk Gun Show under that company name beginning in 2007. As soon as the February date is conffirmed, we will announce it to all who showed with us in 2005. The entire schedule will be available on the C&E GUN SHOWS website. Table reservations will be managed by C&E Gun Shows.


So it looks like there will be gun shows in Norfolk again in the future.

Regards,

Just so you know Bob of "Bob's Gun Shop, Norfolk" fame is probably the guy most responsible for Gun Shows returning to Norfolk. Regardless of how small the show is or how cheezy it might be, if they have it I will be there just to show the city that Gun Shows serve a significant segment of the Norfolk and Tidewater population.

I believe C&E is the outfit that puts on the Hampton and Showplace (Richmond) shows, which are pretty decent. Maybe this bodes well for the Norfolk show increasing in size and scope (venue pun ).
