Toronto Military Show

Has anyone ever been to this show before, I saw an advertisement for it yesterday downtown in a surplus store.

Any good deals to check out their for gear and what not or is it a total gong show?

Although, its 7bucks dont know if you can really go wrong with that

If only I still lived out that way. I definately would have had to check it out, but I am all the way in Nova Scotia...Booo..
But I think that would be a great show to get to if possible

Looks cool man, maybe I can get some realistic gear for myself finally...the only reason I haven't so far is because of the damn price and lack of selection in Canada.

Lack of selection in Canada? We have the same access to gear as any other country. Price isn't that much more off either.

Slow down boys. I participated and attended this show before. If you like Militaria, Badges patches. If you like Collectable equipment Old helmets and Bayonets and Webbing. Old prints and Paintings and other stuff rescued from Yard sales and Church Basements. The smell of Bad coffee and Old man B.O. this is the show for you. There are also a lot of old shotguns and surplus rifles, antique firearms and Assorted bits of Leather and Canvas. You will also finds a selection of dusty Toys from the 70' and 80's. There will be three hundred guys lined up in the rain wearing Legion Jackets and the shiney Disco Jacket they bought at the last show. As well as a couple guys in Hunter Camo with their Twelve year old looking for their first Cooey Shotgun.
Go..... but expect a bad Garage sale of War Surplus stuff. You won't find any brilliant deals as everyone selling the stuff knows what it is and how much to ask for it.
However..................
Some guys are tired of looking at the stuff they have and may be willing to drop a few bucks. Some stuff on the tables You will have never seen before and feel that $25.00 is a great buy. The experience is unique to this type of show and the price of admission reflects the type of experience you will have.
I will try to attend this show in March as its better attended by vendors and as far as shows go this Etobicoke Olympian Show is one of the more notable. Bring Cash, as much as you can and learn how to make deals on Multiples and Haggle (reasonably) don't be suprised if your LowBall earns you a 'Piss off!'.
Other than that, don't expect this to be Boxing Day at Future Shop. Go down don't expect much and you'll be pleased if you walk out with a "Something you weren't looking for" deal.
Cheers

We could hope, wish and give benefit of the doubt but it's fairly clear we'd be wrong.

As for the show: There ARE neat things to be found but you're not going to be finding much in the way of new shit, as ArmyIssue said, don't expect much and you may be surprised. Last year or the year before I walked out with two Enfield Bayonets in brilliant condition, one for a No.1 Mk.III and one for a No.4 got really good prices as I bought em at the end of the day on my way out and seller wanted rid of his stuff and actually threw the No.4 in as an extra
