I went to a gun show at the State Fairgrounds about 10 years ago -- long before I got re-interested in pistols. Any idea on whether or not this show will be of interest to Mak collectors and other 9x18 fans?
If it's put on by "Suncoast Gunshows", don't waste your time. They put on shows all over the area 2-3 times/month, and you'd be wasting your time. It's all commercial vendors who are real proud of their stuff (i.e. they price it so they make sure they get to take it back to their shop). I know it's not until January, but the best one coming in this area is at the Lakeland Civic Center and it's put on by the Lakeland Rifle & Pistol Club. It is always a great show. They do 3 a year, and the January show seems to be the biggest. You have to be careful, though, as Suncoast Gunshows also uses the Lakeland Center. Save your money and wait for January!
