I have a guest pass, is anyone else going?

I've never been to an OGCA show, and I don't know quite what to expect.
Just a bunch of seasoned citizens swapping shotguns?

I gave up my OGCA membership a few years back, after the IX Center was swapped to Cleveland, and the shows moved out to Sandusky.

Anyway, after they moved out to Sandusky, the EBR dealers seemed to really dry up. It may have been just the few shows that I attended, for what its worth.

I have fond rememberances of the IX Center shows...

You sure about that? My list shows the 12/13 for OGCA.

I may not hit this one, in any case. I need some stuff that's seldom at the OGCA shows and IS at the Goodman's show in Dayton so I may hit that one instead.

I like the OGCA shows, they're nothing like a regular gun show but that's a good thing. It's not just old codgers or lever actions, but it's true the black-rifles are few and far between. If you like C&R guns it's a good show and the display show in May is awesome.

Although you'll seldom steal anything from a dealer or someone selling, you also won't see someone trying to sell a Mosin for $300, because a: the guy selling knows what it's worth being a collector and b: he knows you know what it's worth being a collector.

What I like about the OGCA shows is that the membership keeps riff-raff out. I haven't seen any smelly guys or rude asshole dealers. That's worth the price of admission, right there.

Dunno yet....Darren and his wife are coming and we planned on letting the wives do some shopping so it sort of hangs on that.

Not to hijack a thread, but I was up there sat getting a bite to eat at wendys before pulling my stand out from the farm I hunt up near there. I pulled up behind a guy leaving the show and saw that he had a KERRY sticker on his bumper! That was bad enough but he had an NRA sticker right beside it!! Honestly how dumb some people can be just amazes me.
