    South Island Gun Shows?

    Being new to NZ I'm wondering if gun shows are common here? I'm referring to events where collectors and the like get tables at a hall and sell their guns/reloading equipment/militaria etc. I'm not really interested in commercial expos - you can get that stuff anywhere, the private sales always have the fun oddball stuff!

    So, do these events exist, and if so, where and when?

    Not very many of them. There are a few, but you usually have to be in the group to find out about them.

    May be consider joining NZ Antique Arms Association via one of the local branches. The branches run shows/auctions throughout the year. A quick check though and looks like the SI ones were earlier in the year.

    I got ahold of the web contact - they're still meeting last thursday of every month as posted on the main site. No news on why the subsidiary site is inactive. Going to go this thursday so if anyone's on the fence about coming you may as well come out! Racetrack this thurs at 730.
