    How many of you are in the Bloomington/Normal area? For those of you that are. What are you favorite gun shows? What is the farthest gun show you regularly travel to?

    Best Regards,

    Thomas Carey

    I haven't been considered "blooming normal" for decades.

    Are you talking about BloomingTON Illinois?

    I'm not far from there...I have a good friend that lives there too. Haven't been to any gun shows there though.

    I live in Bloomington. I've gone to a couple of gun shows at the Sale Barn for the past couple of years. So I don't travel very far :p The last one was doing some brisk business, and most prices were moderately high. I'm sure there was haggle room, but most what they had, I wasn't interested in. There was a booklet on Knife Throwing Techniques of the Ninja though...i got a picture of my friend holding it, but regrettably i didn't pick it up.

    I just moved to Peoria @ 6 months ago. I know I am not considered Bloomington/Normal area but, I know It relatively close. I haven't been to any gun shows yet but, I think my gun range has one every year that ill go too and I think its open to the public. Its called: Midwest Gun Collectors Association.

    Champaign here. Ride to Normal frequently for friends and family. I used to make a habit of the Indy 1500 gun show (best in the area really) but the ATF really knows how to rain on your parade with all their transfer laws, so I quit going. The show at the Champaign County fairgrounds last year was a bit nicer than expected. I look forward to the next.
