Default FDHAS 2 Day Gun Show, Allentown PA May 12 & 13

At Aleentown Fairgrounds. About 700 tables with a great mix of MILSUPRS, historical and new weapons, uniforms, bayonets, medals, etc. No junk. Bill Ricca and his folks run a great show!

Wild Bill Guarnere will be there signing autographs on Saturday.

Here's a link to the show schedule: http://www.allentownshow.net/gunshow_schedule.htm

I can't make it down for Saturday but will be there on Sunday!!

Flight is $800. That idea died a quick death.

Man, I'd love to meet Wild Bill. Wish I were closer to PA!

Just out of curiosity, why the "no kids in strollers or backpacks" clause? Are they just trying to avoid traffic jams in the aisles, or are people actually using those things to shoplift? Another reason, perhaps? It doesn't say no kids, just no kids in backpacks or strollers. That just caught my eye...

Anyway, looks like a fun show. Wish I could make it!

Because it's not a day care it's a gun show. Leave your brats at home.

So only kids in strollers or backpacks are brats?

This was a great show! None of the junk stands I see at almost every other gunshow, and some amazing stuff to see that you just don't see anywhere else.

I picked up a 1949-vintage Winchester Model 70 in good, but not collector's, condition.....for a heck of a price. Had three offers to buy it before I left the building!

That's the 2nd time I've left a Forks show with a rifle over my shoulder....my wife's starting to get suspicious when I say "I think I'm going to the gun show in Allentown this weekend..."
