From reading the message boards there seems to be two different gun shows that are held at the Lakeland center.

One is the so called "bad" one and the other is the "good" one.

Is this supposed to be the good one?

Just wondering before I take the almost 2 hour ride.

Definately the good one, over 650 tables. Both sides of the building. This is the better one.

Yep.

It's not that the Suncoast show is bad, but it's kinda just the same old stuff and is probably half the size as when they have it at the Fairgrounds.

The Lakeland Rifle and Pistol Club show, which is this weekend, is HUGE!! Wall to wall C&R and modern stuff. Reloading components, parts and accessories. Damn near everything. I highly recommend this show. In some ways it seems pricey because of the high priced Civil War relics and Colt SAAs. But there are plenty of deals there too. I almost always buy at least one gun from this show.

Looks like my son and I will make the trip since everyone is saying it is a great show.

If it turns out bad, then everyone who said the drive was worth it will owe me gas money.

Ok, it was worth it.....

Definitely a lot of stuff there and talk about an abundance of M1 Carbines.

That's a fact, I wasn't even looking for them and I counted at least sixteen.

Also saw the largest concetration of Colt 'Lightning' rifles I've ever seen in one place.
