The gun show is an American tradition that traces its roots to the early days of our country’s settlement, when hunters and trappers ended their season in a “rendezvous.” Like those early meetings, the contemporary gun show allows participants to view, buy, sell, and trade a wide variety of shooting and sporting products. Displays range from rare and collectible Civil War weaponry to the most recent hunting and shooting products. Also found at the show: army surplus, shooting supplies, historical collectibles, and other forms of militaria. Public admitted 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Sat and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sun; admission $7, children $5.
