I am very sad to say that I will not be there this year.
I have exhibited at the Beinfeld show at most of the last 10 years and have enjoyed meeting people and selling a few guns.
Loath as I am to talk down any of the few remaining antique gun shows, it has to be said that the whole event has shrunk greatly over the time I have been going. That is not to say that it isn't worth going, just that it is a shadow of its former self.
In the sporting guns area, the number of vendors has reduced greatly and although the total square footage has been bulked out with the engravers and knife sections, the whole thing has shrunk.
No doubt Kirby Hoyt, Tony Galazan and other big names will be there as usual but the holes in the lists of old are noticeable.
