Top 5 Finds At Gun Shows

It is super common to hear from a friend that they went to a gun show and picked up such and such that they have been looking for. I have gathered a quick list of items you might just be better off buying or finding at a gun show.


Gun show


1. Magazine

Magazines are tough to come by. Manufactures are too busy building the weapons that are flying off the shelves. They don’t have the time to make enough magazines for everyone that wants extra. It is very common to come across a extra magazine at a gun show. Another problem is older weapons. Most of the time over the years you tend to loose or misplace that magazine for your old gun. Most gun stores don’t carry them rare ones. Going to the gun show is going to be your best bet. They tend to have a large variety of magazine to choose from.


2. AR15

Planning on purchasing a AR15? Your best bet is to head to the show and see what they have available. If you don’t buy anything you will at the very least get a good idea of what you want and the price you are willing to pay for one. Gun shows are usually slammed packed with this style rifle with a large variety of accessories.


3. Old Revolvers

A PERFECT place to find the old revolver you have been looking for. Gun shows tend to have all of the best deals on the old revolvers. Especially if you want a S&W 19, Colt Python, or any other old school revolver.


4. Ammo

It super cheap and you are able to buy it in bulk. The more ammo you buy the cheaper. Gun shows have thousands of rounds on hand at a low price. Most of the time you will find it super cheap. Not only can you purchase a large amount of ammo but you are more likely to find the ammo that your local gun store refuses to carry.

5. Parts

I’m sure everyone can agree with me on this one. The old guy in the back with nothing but buckets of unlabeled parts. Yes, this guy has saved me 2-3 times. It seems that if you cant order a part, this guy always has just what you are looking for. If he doesn’t he will the next time you come.


Well that’s just a couple reasons people enjoy their local gun shows. Do us all a favor and support your local gun show. Attending is all you have to do!

Shot Show 2012

The beginning of this years 2012 Shot Show is just about to be underway. Last year was one of the most successful years in the gun industry. Many manufactures have worked all year building and preparing their new products for 2012’s show of the year. Gun stores around the country have been waiting months for this very important date.  In 2011 manufactures impressed the gun industry with some of the most compact pocket pistols.


Ruger came out with the Ruger LC9, Beretta stunned us with the Nano, and the elite Kimber surprised us with the Solo. These manufactures have put tireless hours and money into these pistols and they have proven to be well worth it. These pistols are almost all allocated by gun distributors and are very hard to find sitting on the shelf in stock. Gun dealers are thriving with customers because of 2011. Gun stores thrive on the manufactures to provide them with nothing but the best.



This year you will see LaserMax showing off their brand new Centerfire lasers. They teamed up with Ruger to bring you a all-in-one package. It’s companies like this that make the industry what it is today. A six billion dollar one.

“I hope everyone has a wonderful time and lets us know about their experiences. Please feel free to comment and let us know what you seen and what is going on your wish list.

With gun sales on the rise for the past 16 months, this could be one of the best years for the SHOT SHOW. The shooting industry is already bringing in just over 4 billion dollars to the U.S. Economy, and continues to grow. Most gun store owners believe that 2012 just might be the biggest year the industry will see. With the election right around the corner and more liberals pushing for more gun control, gun sales are not going to start decreasing anytime soon.
