I haven't been to a gun show in 3-4 years... anyone still finding deals at them? I feel like I find way more deals online?

There are exceptions, but gun show prices suck and admission/parking just make it worse. Go for the fun, not the product.

Good place to load up on targets and beef jerky.

I think the best thing to buy these days at a Gun Show are substaintial Metal Targets. You can see them in-person, pick out what you want and avoid shipping.
Plus, beef jerky, bamboo pillows, tasers, and lots of chinese junk.

Yeah online is the way to go....I don't think there are gun shows anymore in California. High prices to add to the disappointment.....I'm sure some people enjoy it for what it is though.

18 for OC and 13 for Ventura a ticket that's a box of ammo or a trip to the range to get in. I doubt you will save enough on anything you buy to make it worth the time , gas and money . ill pass on standing in lines all day just to get ammo at ridiculous prices.

California gun shows are a great place to find that elusive turquoise jewelry that's so popular these days.

Gun shows might be a thing again when the new ammo laws come into effect.

Agreed, Gun shows may be our best option next year. I am fairly well stocked but ammo is finite.

I begrudgingly go to almost every one here at the Cow Palace, not only to support it, but to bring my kids and let them get a good feel for the "limited" freedoms we still enjoy. Maybe they'll be able to pass the same on to their kids and keep the 2A alive in CA. The jerky and salami are freaking awesome too!

Last time I went to Ventura gun show a few months ago they had a pretty good selection, I was actually quite surprised as to how much they had compared to what I thought it would be (nothing like the old days at Pomona Fairgrounds). However like most said you can find better deals online. It was just the ease of getting what you want and walking out with it. Mostly ammo and steel targets.
