    Default How’s the Orlando Gun Show?

    This weekend has gun shows in both Orlando and WPB. I’ve been going to the WPB show for decades since I’m a lot closer, but it seems to have gone downhill over the years with the big vendors like Shoot Straight and Florida Gun Exchange no longer coming, and more tables selling non-gun stuff (jerky, anyone?). Orlando is a more than 2 hour drive for me. TIA.

    Fairgrounds?

    new ordnance has put an end to private sales without a BG check....and if its Shoot Straight you want, you'll find plenty of them at this show....they own suncoast gunshows...

    It's not worth the drive from Tampa for me anymore....I don't do any of the Suncoast shows anymore.....

    Most gun shows have gone the way of trinkets and bobbles--- renting tables to anyone with cash!!!

    Yes, Fairgrounds. The new ordnance doesn’t bother me since I generally don’t buy from private sellers. They usually have little to interest me anyway. Just looking for something more interesting then smallish dealers selling S&W ARs and Glocks.

    Shoot Straight took over the show and ruined it, basically another retail location for them at this point. I don’t bother with it anymore and I only live 20min away

    There used to be a vendor with lots of nice stiff, NIB prebans, class 3 stuff, etc, but I haven’t seen him lately. It’s nice to kill time and go every once and a while. I wouldn’t drive 2 hours for it though. I’m local.

    as they mention above. Shootstraight has taken over most tables.

    However, if the gun show is on a holiday weekend or on black friday weekend, a lot of vendors show up and the options are sometimes great. I try to go only on those days or if Im bored.
