    I have been going to gun shows in the Metroplex area for over 40 years. The Dallas show at Market Hall was a great show 20 years ago. There were a lot of individual people that rented tables and you could buy, sell, or trade and find good deals. Today most of the gun sellers are no better than trading with your local gun store.
    I agree that the Fort Worth gun show is by far the best in the area. I live in the Dallas area, so it is a 45 minute commute (with good traffic) to get over there.

    About the only one I go to anymore is Mesquite Gun Show. Sometimes Bigtown. But rarely go to Market Hall anymore.

    Went to Mesquite last weekend, cost me money. Probably go to Ft Worth this weekend. Dallas is off my radar, nothing like it was in the past.

    Yep, Market Hall was the mother of all gun shows back in the day. I remember putting my kid in a helicopter inside that gun show one year. Lots of cool stuff.

    Heard from a vendor yesterday at Mesquite that the Dec Market Hall show will the the last. They are tearing down Market Hall and DACA apparently hasn't figured out what to do next. I may go just for old times sake and to say Goodbye.
