Default Great Idaho Gun Show

Did any of you guys go to the Great Idaho Gun Show in Nampa this weekend? How was it? I couldn't go today but, may get to go tomorrow if our moving truck gets here early and unpacks our stuff. Is this one of the bigger gun shows for Idaho?

Its one of the bigger ones. No worries if you miss, they will be back in a couple of months. There are many smaller ones around too.

Ok, just checked the listing of idaho gun shows, and the boise gun show will be back at the Ford idaho center Feb 6-7. I'd post the link but I'm on my cell. You can find it by Googling idaho gun shows.

There's an interesting back story on why the boise gun show is held in Nampa, involving two accidental discharges and insurance rates...

Great, I should be able to make that show.
I would sure like to hear the back story about the gun show.

I was there. I go to every show within 100 miles. Thereís going to be one there in feb, mar, apr, june, & nov. Itís large. Takes up the entire floor of the Idaho center plus some of the upper deck. For sure worthwhile. Masks not required. They are limiting it to something like 300 ppl so once itís full itís one in one out with a long waiting line to get in. Sunday is obviously lower crowds but youíll miss the cool old handguns cause iíll have already bought them sat morning.

9 bucks to get in, parking is free. No carrying of loaded guns at the show.

The show used to be at the Ada county fairgrounds but there were a couple desk pops over the years and so itís moved to Idaho center in Canyon cty.

Homedale show (fairgrounds) is small but worth the drive as is the marsing show at the vfw. Occasionally there will be shows in caldwell at the NG armory near the airport, and also a smaller one in nampa at the NG armory.

Old smiths. Old colts. I was just kidding though, i actually didnít buy any guns this time. Last month i got a mint+ baby browning .25acp with all the goodies including a factory holster.
