Pa Gun Shows

I'm from the Philadelphia area and was wondering if any local gun shows are coming up....I live 10 mins from the Valley Forge Convention Center and I always hear that you can find some pretty good deals.

I'm looking to get a 23 or 27 by the end of the summer.....

What have you guys found in the terms of pricing for either new or used 23's or 27's at PA gun shows?

i believe the next Valley Forge gun show is in September. I can't say that I saw any great deals at the last show. It was pretty unspectacular.

There is a show at the Philadelphia armory on August 18th and 19th. I have been to one and it wasn't bad. I found a couple of good deals on used 17s (which I couldn't buy anyway, because I'm in Jersey), but I don't know about .40s.

The last time I was at the Valley Forge show, I was underwhelmed.

Nothing truly spectacular at gunshows anymore, sadl. I still like to go, though. Check out:
Did I mention I own a shop now? Check it out!
