I'll be at Ottos Police Supply again for the show.
Hopefully one of the Ohio guys will be bringin the AR stuff in.
I found out at the last show that they are not allowed into the Silverado shows for some unknown reason.

Damn, same weekend as my work picnic.

I forget how many tables they have there.
It's in the building at the far left end of the parking area.
The one they call the big show is in the winter and is Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday.
This is just Saturday and Sunday.

Who is the promoter? If it isn't Silverado, is this gun show on par with SGS?

Exhibition Hall and its a Preston Jones show, I believe.

So its the same place as last week but a different promoter?

It is Preston's show.
It is at the Maryland fairgrounds in Timonium.

It is indeed the big MD show. However, it has been becoming increasingly lower in quality over the years. Back in the early '90s, it was a great show, but I don't bother to make the 45mins drive from PA anymore. I ended up spending more on admission than on actual merchandise.

But if it's all you have, check it out. Or save your money for the bigger show at the Harrisburg Farm Show Complex show in December (11-12th as I recall).

This is over an hour drive for me, I'd really like to make it, but I don't need to take that much time out of my day to look at Nazi knives & coins & rusted 1870 bolt action rifles. I really hope they have good, modern stuff there. I guess I've never been to this show, I'll give it one shot (hahaha).

It's not a bad show (for a Maryland show). I've gotten some good deals on ammo in the past. I doubt I'll make it this time though - I'm running out of room to put stuff, and most of the stuff I still want I can't buy in Maryland anyway.

DvlDog - what part of Harford County you from? I grew up in Churchville (Aberdeen area) and now live just north of the border in southern York County, Pa. (one of many Md refugees in the area)

+1 on the Harrisburg show. It's several times as big as Timonium and you can buy hicap mags there, not to mention I can actually buy guns there since I'm in state.

Hey 9mm, did those gang bangers buy that shotgun?

That is the only problem I hvae with the Timonium show.
Too close to the toot rail.

Hey to everyone that stopped by.
Hope to see most of you next Sunday at Elk Neck.
This will be my last shoot here since I received my walking papers last tuesday.

I'm heading to western PA.
