Is anyone going to this or heard of it? Probably the wrong place to post this, but just curious.

Yup, everything is over priced. OH BTW, there is a $10 entrance fee....I only bought a spam can(440rds) of 7.62x54r for $99. I should of picked up 2 cans...I MIGHT go to the next one in Roseville for this.


Dr. Mauser - I saw about 10 USGI M1 Carbines there, most were in good shape. They are pricey though, 1,2xx being the cheapest.

Roseville Gun Show
Placer County Fairgrounds
800 All America City Blvd.
Roseville, CA

Show hours for all gun shows are:
Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sunday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Not sure what the entrance fee is going to be there but I am suspecting $10. If I decide to go we could meet up in Lodi off of Kettleman Lane, and take my Pathfinder to Roseville. It's an hour drive there. Asking for like 10/15 bucks each for gas. I can fit 3 other passengers. I can fit a total of 6 but I'm not going to be bothered taking my sons seat, which is a pain to take off and put back on.

I went to the Stockton show only because a friend of mine wanted to go and he was driving. I told him I haven't been to a Stockton show for years.....for that matter any gun show. And now he knows why. It was pretty bad.

How many tables at the Roseville show??

+1, Lots of SxS, O/U, and a few pump shotguns as well as a good number of C&R rifles but they were all over priced and there was nowhere near the amount of the Vallejo Gun show, and I thought it was small. Big Disappointment!!

Just got back from it a few hours ago.

I am new to Tracy and I used to go to the TS gunshow in San Jose and the Crossroads of the west shows at the Cow Palace. So this is my first show on this side of town. The show was small but I think it's better than the TS's at San Jose. No where near the maginuted of the Crossroad show but you never know what you'll find.

I was delighted with the "Free Parking" and it was nice to have a family owned inexpensive food court outside the venue. But was surprised not see the NRA doing their thing. Maybe because it was a Sunday? <- please confirm.

They were there on Saturday in the SE corner of the building.

NRA/Friends of NRA are usually there, just inside the front door. Some of the same folks that work that table also work the booth for the Stockton Sportsmen's Club (selling raffle tickets to support youth hunts). They were down the left wall from the entrance in the corner. It gets harder and harder to support the little local shows, but I still try.

It was pretty small. I had never been there before. Didn't find any cheap C&R either. But I did get some 308 bullets, from the nice guys @ Get Bullets & Brass. Also picked up a jug of the Lyman Nuttough media.

Local gun shows in the central valley are hit and miss with a lot of miss. I would save up and check out a Big Reno show if you want to check out some C&R stuff. Last time I went was like C&R heaven with pretty good prices to boot. I figure I should make another trip next year but I've curved my collecting and I really need to start to focus on selling stuff early next year.
