    Are the Premier Gun Show series or the Market Hall Show worth going to? I have some items I'm looking to sell and figured one of these may be a good option. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    The Market hall show(https://dallasarms.com/) is huge it has close to 2000 tables and lots of people, I have never sold any gun related things so I cannot comment on which place is easier to sell. I have gone to the Premier show in Lewisville, it was ok maybe around 200 tables at most and less people than the market hall show. I have not gone to the Mequite or FW locations of the gun show so not sure about the crowd size etc.

    Is the Market Hall show mostly firearms related or are there a bunch of Tshirt, jewelry and random booths? Trying to see if it's worth the drive this weekend.

    There is about the same amount of those types of tables as there are at other gun shows in DFW. Market Hall definitely brings out the milsurp sellers so if you are into that, it is worth the trip.

    Market Hall last time probably had 10-15% empty tables. Lots of guns and dealers. More individuals than dealers. Lots of scopes, holsters, etc. Not an overabundance of bling junk. As stated if you want parts for an AR, Glock, or several other brands they are there. Prices are so-so. They can be beat on the internet. If you know what you want and what it's worth you can probably come out OK.

    Either one of the BIG DFW gunshows, Dallas and Ft. Worth, are worth going to if you have a day to spend browsing. Quite a few folks show up to them.

    Market Hall was my favorite show for 20+ years. For whatever reason it's not what it was, but it's still a good show.

    I usually go to Big Town. Or the Mesquite show these days, but only because they are closer.

    Did not realize they were doing it on Easter this year.

    Mesquite is a good show. I usually see some more uncommon firearms and milsurps when I go
