This show used to have a good amount of C & R guns. I am not sure of their current status.

Once a year I think it's in February in Crystal River Florida is Don's fabulous Crystal River gun show
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Most of the Florida gun shows have collectors, almost none have any bargains. Some, like Don's in Crystal River, are better, but in Florida just about every flea market will have gun collectors buying and selling. Pawn shops can be another decent source.

Know what you want and are willing to pay, everyone thinks their gun is 95% condition in the Blue Book. Some are more realistic. There seem to be a lot more fakes out there now than there used to be too.

I look for bargains, broken and parts guns mostly, not pristine collector guns, so take my advice with that in mind.
