Has anyone gone down there or are planning on going? Last time I went was a couple of years ago, and I don't remember it being that big.

If anyone has gone would you give us a report?

Just got back. The snowstorm did a number on attendance. About 20% of the tables were empty and the folks browsing were few. I would think Sunday will get better attendance since the weather should be better. I went to this show last year and it was a mob scene. You couldn't get close to half the tables.
Anyways, after removing the knife, mil-surp clothing and jerky dealers, there were not a whole lot of guns. Lots of shot guns and hunting rifles. One dealer with a good table of Bushmaster & Olympic ARs in the 650-1200 dollar range. A few other dealers with a smattering of ARs. Didn't see a single pre-ban in the entire building!
A good number of pistols and revolvers with fairly decent prices. I was looking for a SA mil-spec but didn't see any, just one "loaded" for 650 and a few used for varying prices.
Lots of ammo, battlepacks and ammo of unknown origin(reloads) but I'm pretty set on ammo for now. Lots and lots of magazines, though I didn't see any deals(ie. a few new-in-bag AR mags I saw @45.00).
A good number of SKSs and Mosin-Nagants in various condition. I did stop at a table with dozens of M1 carbines with prices of 350 and up. Was tempted.

 After all that the only thing I walked out with was a couple of AR front pivot pins for my build project. 4 bucks each.

 Will be going to the show in Manchester next week, but I'm not expecting much.

 Hope this answers your question.

It does, thanks. Doesn't sound like it's worth the hour drive.

I went to the Rock show today as well.  It was a bit of a disappointment.  I did get some very clean ammo cans though.  I saw some colt 30 rounders in very good condition but not new for $30.00.  There were two pre-ban colts there as well on the table with all the Olys. One guy had two 500 rd. cases of XM193 but he wanted $90.00.  The busiest booth was the beef jerky.  Still worth the $7.00 admission though.
