My local shooting club puts on a gun show every year and this years was unbelievable! The show started out small 6 or 7 years ago and has steadily grown in attendance and sellers. A couple of years ago we kinda stumbled on a guy who puts on a regional Safari Club annual event and hired him to do ours.
We now rent the county fairgrounds and is now called a gunshow & sportsman's expo. We sold almost 200 tables, have several outfitters there...some with stock to give kids free horseback ride, a classic car show and rvs, boats and trucks shown on site. Attendance has just exploded! I had a table and sold out yesterday (show closes today). Made almost $1000 and sold NO guns. (last year I cleared $4,000 and sold several guns). We coordinate it with our local NRA Banquet so we really get the best of everything.
Club will probably clear near 20 grand, which will be used for our Jr. Shooting club program and range improvement. It is quite an event. We are getting sellers from Denver, St Lake City, Phoenix and Albq.
It sold lots of stuff I find at yard sales, etc. Made enough to pay for my new lab pup I get the first week of June!
