I plan to go Saturday morning. Never been to this gun show so don't know what to expect. Some times the small ones pull in more small sellers that don't go to the bigger shows. 

Well if it's a total bust, great, or something in between, please update though I may go regardless as it has been too long since my last show (maybe March).

Show is small but not a bust. It was a 45 minute drive for me and I will probably not go again at that distance and size. It pretty much filled the Ruritan building if you have ever been to it. Neighbor that went with me bought some only slightly overpriced ammo that he needed, not at prices you would stock up. He also bought a new Winchester Semi .22 that was close to list but the dealer included tax, background check and a box of ammo for that price so that made it a good deal. He was tempted on another gun for the same dealer. A couple of dealers selling parts for old guns and a few knife dealers, no t-shirt or jerky dealers. mostly small dealers and individuals. Only a couple of outside dealers when we were there. Nice drive on a sunny Fall day and only $5 admission.

I read your post this morning then headed out for the show. Only 25 minutes for me and I enjoyed it, definitely going to be a regular unless I have plans that weekend. Saw some things I haven't seen before (.219 Zipper caliber) and some that I want but I've been too cheap (Savage model 24). Nearly bought some 92 mags but I only bought a box of ammo. Nice drive for me as well from South Greene.
