Default Gun Shows - Mid Tennessee

Its been years since I went to a gun show - I used to go fairly often when I lived in FL and before that in New England -

Are the shows worth attending these days and if so, which are the better ones to attend? Thanks.

astro,

Most of the shows here are small shows. The only real decent show I have found is held at the Fairgrounds in Nashville. Sparta TN. has a small show but fun to go to. The one big show that is close is in Louisville KY at the Fairgrounds. They usually have the gun show and a military show there at the same time.
Other than that they are small. But even there you can find some good stuff!

I live in Murfreesboro and go to quite a few. This is the site I use

http://www.gunshows-usa.com/tennesee.shtml

Bill goodman show is at the fairground in Nashville this weekend... Murfreesboro is next weekend and it is an RK show. Which in my experience is usually pretty decent


Hope this helps.

The one that was in Hendersonville a few weeks back was pretty good.
I think the "bill Goodman" shows in Nashville have really gone downhill in the last few years. Lots of paintball stuff and books, clothing, blowguns, etc.

I am planning to go to the show in Lebanon tomorrow at the Wilson County Fairgrounds - it will be interesting to see what is available and how expensive...
