"No man's life, liberty or property are safe while the legislature is in session." -- New York State Surrogate Court Judge Gideon John Tucker, Final Accounting in the Estate of A.B._, 1, Tucker (N.Y. Surrogate Court) 247, 249 (1866)
I'm considering taking the ride up just because we never have the opportunity around these parts.
Did I forget to mention..NY BLOWS!
I see its right in your backyard...good for you! Gotta admit Im a bit jealous since it will be a cold day in hell before Nassau County hosts a gun show
Spent a few hours at the show and it was pretty good. I picked up a magpul hand guard rail for the AR and 1 spam can of 5.45x39 and 500 rounds of 22. There were plenty of AR15 uppers, lowers, and parts. I say about 40 to 60 on the tables. AK47's and a few 74's and im sure many more different kinds but I put it at about 30 to 40 AK type guns. Ammo tables looked like they did real good with the early birds as around 2pm they looked like they were about to run out. Pistols were not many but there were a few and some good looking black powder guns. There was a table with some nice M1 carbine's. The paratrooper folding stock M1 was going for mid 2 grand I think.
There was a small line to get in that went fast but I got there about 1pm. That tells me the show must of been very busy all day! That has to be the most popular show they have in that place but they might not want to admit that lol.
It was worth it to stop by for a few hours for me.

Couple of reasons why Westchester is such a success. One, there's no gun shows in either NYC and LI. There's a market of over 10 million right there, admittedly not 10 million gunowners, but you get the point. Also, the show was gone for so many years, the Westchester folk have been yearning for their own show and turning out in droves to show support, thereby insuring the show goes on.
Either way, it's a win-win and I'm happy the show is back. Back in the day, the best shows were at the County Center and Yonkers raceway. It'd be nice to have the Yonkers show come back as well, but I'm not holding my breath.
Sounds like it was a good one, cheers to Rob Astorino.
I went for a few hours myself. Got there around 9:15am and briefly waited on line. It only took an hour or two before the place was completely swamped! It was a pretty good show. Ammo prices were as good as online specials so I picked up 1000rds of 7.62x39 for a $200 + tax. Also joined the WCFOA. It's great to have it here in White Plains and even better to know it's a popular show.
