Central Indiana Gun Shows is bringing several vendors to the Gibson County Fairgrounds for another fun event.

You can find some really cool items at local gun shows. One of my favorite recent finds was a box of wrapped M1 Garand en bloc clips manufactured in the 1940s as part of the ongoing war effort. (Those are getting harder and harder to find.) I purchased a few that day, and they currently sit on a shelf next to my Springfield Armory 1945 M1 Garand. I'm not a materialistic person by any means, but that rifle is definitely one of my favorite possessions.

In addition to an assortment of vintage military surplus weapons, you can find a wide range of collectibles at gun shows, like helmets, buttons, patches, pictures, and even flags taken into battle. As a Gibson County resident, I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what the upcoming Princeton Gun & Knife Show is bringing to the trading table. The event is hosted each year by Central Indiana Gun Shows and never disappoints.
