I was driving through town today and saw a sign for Gun Show this weekend at the fairgrounds. I don't know anything else about it, but I am going since I live literally across the street.

Agh! I'll be out of town this weekend :(

I live across the street from the fairgrounds too.

No parking fee, but it is a fairly small show compared to Cal Expo and off the radar when compared to the Reno show. I may go just for fun and exercise.

Would it be around the same size as the gun shows at the fairgrounds in Roseville?

no this is in Auburn at the fairgrounds off of High St or Auburn Folsom Rd (two ways in).

Like I said i don't have any other info on it, they did one about 6-8 months ago and it was pretty small. All in just one building at the fairgrounds. I saw only one sign around town and the local pawn shop said they would be bringing their guns down. If find any more info I'll post it.

I don't recall seeing any jerky at the last one though

Back when you could cash-and-carry firearms the gun show there was pretty enjoyable. Not that great now although I did get lucky at the last one with a deal on some amax bullets.

If you're within short driving distance of the place and have nothing to do you might as well but otherwise pass.

meh, not really worth it. small gun shows equals high prices. if you really want to buy something, wait until Sunday where they will mark down the prices.

I'm going on Sunday just for that reason.
But I'll be surprised if anybody else goes, there has been no advertising here in town that I'm aware of. Nothing on the local radio station or local papers.

Although a little further, I was thinking about going to the show at Turlock put on by Code of the West. Which one would you go?

Nothing out of the ordinary there today, did find a .410/.45LC Circuit Judge for a friend. Called him and he drove up and bought it because it was exactly what he had been looking for. There were at least five ammo dealers there, but not Miwall, as they usually only do the larger shows. No screaming deals on ammo that I saw but they were competitive.
