Pittsburgh area gun shows

Just a heads up, I was not sure of the best place to put this, but here goes,
There is a PGCA gun show at Pittsburgh Mills off Rout 28 this weekend Jan 22-23.
And also a C&E Gun show at the Monroeville convention center Feb 5-6.
Like all shows prices are a little on the high side, but I have found hard to find parts, and sometimes you will run into a pretty good deal.

I go just for the 'enjoyment factor'. Butler and washington were also good in the last two weeks.

Thanks for the heads up Hornady

Re: Pittsburgh area gun shows

Don't know about C&E event but the PGCA when it was held at the Expo mart was 400 tables at least..it took days to see everything and touch everything.., I even picked up some original Daisey VL ammo which is about as rare as filled hens teeth...we used to get lots deals especially on reloading equipment and supplies,bulk bullets and casings..I haven't been to the Mills show but if it's the same people I'd think it would be run about the same...

Re: Pittsburgh area gun shows

When you come off 28 at the mall entrance, follow the road back a little past the mall. You should see signs to the show right turn, follow them back to the rear of the mall, they are using a building attached to the mall, but you must enter from that door.
At the last show you could leave the show and go into the mall. But you must go threw the front doors at the rear of the mall initially.

Re: Pittsburgh area gun shows

Is it back behind the mall by the entrance for the movies?

Re: Pittsburgh area gun shows

me and my boys and brother will be there. i haven't been to a gs in at least a year. i just love the smell of all those guns. i haven't found a deal at one of these shows for a few years but you never know. i found my rarest pumpgun at the PGCA show a few years ago for a really good deal.

My diploma is a DD Form 214

Re: Pittsburgh area gun shows

good show. GREAT new location. And it cuts 1 1/4 minutes off my drive.

Very clean. lots of easy parking. Take the wife and she can shop right there.
