    is it worth driving down from Hanover if I'm looking for an enfield, glock, and 10/22?

    thanks,

    Probably.

    I've seen all of the above at their shows. Can't comment on prices, though.

    I'd make a trip up river to The Village Gun Store in Whitefield before I'd make a trip to another Gun Show. Super prices and no BS....Essex

    No. That one is small, and it's in a really grungy hotel gathering area that looks more like a basement. I've never seen a Radisson with a hall that ugly. Fluorescent lit block and concrete.

    It has many more vendors than the total waste of time one out by the seacoast at some racetrack, but it's not worth a long trip. Prices were usual "Are you kidding?" stupidity on anything but odd surplus ammo, last year.

    Enfields were around $100 more than you get from surplus places. I saw $200 Nagant pistols and $198 not-even-cleaned Yugo SKS's with the Sarco tags still on them, if that gives you an idea.

    Glocks would be about $100 over MSRP. Even if used.

    I went to their Brattelboro VT show (no longer run), which was out of a VFW hall, when they got booted from the high school. It was pretty small, but the folks were nice. It's been the better part of a decade since I've been to a Diprete show.

    Just out of curiosity, have you tried Skip's in Bristol, NH? It's only 42 miles from you.
