History of Gun Shows

History of Gun Shows

Is there anyone who is aware of what we now call a "gun show" (a place for the exhibiting, buying, and selling of guns on an occasional basis) before 1968 in the United States? The earliest reference that I can find is a 1960 gun show in Toronto, Canada.

  1. I was going to gun shows in the Toledo, OH area before 1968, probably as early as 1966. Still go now and then. A professional promoter sponsers one in Monroe, MI twice/year, and there's several others hosted by local Clubs.
