    Been going for the last 6-7 years. Fantastic show. Lots of stuff you won’t even see in museums.

    Was fortunate to go while visiting wife's relatives in Broken Bow a few years ago. The cousin's husband took me in the back way since he was a police officer. Definitely go if you have the opportunity.

    It has gotten so big and crowded that I don't enjoy it like I once did.

    I have gone as both an exhibitor and as the general public. there are normally 2 shows a year.

    The most tables I ever saw was over 6000 tables.

    Prices are normally higher than In my home state. But one reason could be the cost per table. The last time I went, tables cost the vendors/exhibitors $140.00 each, that's a lot to make up.

    It is a great show to visit and see many different things including antique's.

    This last spring I think tables were $175, JE. I go just to visit with friends I wouldn't get to see other wise. I get to see some real custom guns and meet some real custom gunsmiths, too.

    I've attended it for about 40 years. It's grown a lot in that time. It was big and enjoyable at about 2000 tables. The amount of tables and the crowd it attracts now make it difficult to even walk through the isles. But there is a lot of stuff there.
