    How Is Kokomo Show (July 22nd)? Worth Drive?

    Curious how the Kokomo Show is... Not been there do not know what to expect. Is it worth 1 1/2 hour drve??? Lots of gun stuff or full of beanie babys, jewelery and snake oil?

    I have been down to it a few times and usually find something I am interested it. They usually have quite a few tables of used guns. Of course Brad usually makes me buy a knife every time I go down there.

    The knife scene is excellent ... if you go to Brad's tables.

    I like it, last firearm purchase was a used Browning A5 12 gage semi-auto shotgun in very fine condition for $400. I usually find something I want/need. Last show I attended there I purchased several items for an AR build ~ Barrel, upper receiver, Stock with buffer assembly, forearm and misc. Lots of used firearms, some collectable firearms (though the owners seem too proud of them for me). There are a few vendors of Jerky, eyeglass cleaner, nuts etc., but not any more than most other shows.

    Last show had 2 well stocked vendors of AR firearms, lowers, uppers, parts and accessories at darn good prices. 2 or 3 knife vendors (including Brad). Sometimes a guy there with BP accessories and parts. DON"T come expecting to purchase any food from the vendor there, as it is the worst of any GS I attend. However there are several good restaurants near by including Cracker Barrel, Golden Corral etc. I will be going with my son either Saturday or Sunday.

    There are some older guns there so if you are after something specific then it might be worth the drive. I enjoy going but I'm only about 35 min away. I'll be there Saturday at some point.

    It is hit or miss, especially during the summer.
    The venue is nice.
    If the drive wasn't so far, it would rank higher on my scale.

    Usually 225 to 250 tables but I have seen it as many as 300. All the details at: https://www.ingunowners.com/forums/n...=newthread&f=6
