I was disappointed to read that the Valley Forge Show is no more and that the building is being converted into a casino.
The show promoter is advertising a show in Lancaster in early March. I have never been to the Lancaster show and would like to hear from anybody on how it compares to the old King of Prussia show.
Personally, I am more interested in going to a good "black rifle" show with modern arms and ammo, than I am going to an antique arms show or one that is heavily into gear for WWII reenactors. Nothing wrong with them, just not my thing.

Thanks

The Oaks PA show is closer to Valley Forge, and very similar to it....

The Oaks show, for all intents and purposes, IS the VFGS. It's got pretty much all of the same vendors, plus it's in a larger arena.

You'll just have to find your overpriced Shoot-N-C targets somewhere else, I guess.

I was told by one of the vendors at Oaks that Lancaster is not going to happen. He said it was a bad section of town with little parking and poor facilities and the promoter shelved the idea. Thats what he said, take it for what its worth.

Well, this explains why the billiards tour/cue makers convention is no longer there. They also moved to the Oaks.
