    Hello, I am new to the forum, I am wondering if anyone can tell me which gun shows that come to OKC tend to be the best, one good deals, selection and what not? Also how often do shows come to town?

    First of all, welcome to the forum.
    There are gun shows almost every weekend. Most do not have good deals.
    You're better off with the classifieds on OSA.

    You are just saying that because OSA is full of friendly honest people.

    What Dennis said. Any more, the best deals at gun shows tend to be walked in by visitors rather than by vendors at the shows, though of course there will be exceptions.

    The best gun show still is the biannual Wanenmacher show, though that’s in Tulsa. If you haven’t been, you owe it to yourself to go at least once. It’s the biggest show in the country, bar none, taking up both levels of the Expo Center with a reported 4,000 tables. Even if you attend both days of the show, you’d be hard pressed to see the wares on every table, so you learn to skim and stop only when you see something interesting. Wear comfortable walking shoes - you’ll need them!

    OKC gunshows are great places to pick up deals on tupperware, sentsy and aluminum siding guns not so much.

    13.00 dollars admission less than one third of the building guns. Half the "dealers" do not even hold an ffl and they keep calling me to setup at their shows. No OKC shows have become a joke. They have more guns at an Elk City or Shawnee show.

    There are some OKC shows that are not bad. Some limit the amount of junk allowed. There are always deals to be found if you look.

    Nope. Just more than other shows by dint of volume.
