I went to the Show of Shows in Louisville, KY this past weekend. I must say that I have never seen anything that compared to that show. I spent all day Friday and several hours on Saturday walking the tables. There was that much stuff there. Every artifact that you could possibly want was there. I saw and talked to two dealers that I had seen at the Raleigh Militaria show Robert from Fayetteville and The older couple that set up with mostly knives from ,I think, Pennsylvania maybe wrong on that one.

I bought a trowel bayonet complete with scabbard and plug that fits in the handle, really beautiful piece, also got an Everette knuckle knife but scabbard is not correct and two scabbards one m8 and one to fit a Remington 1913 bayonet that I only had a Brit scabbard for.

There was a monster gun show there also and an indoor flea market, very large area and a big Auto show. I went to everything but the auto show, just ran out of time. All of these shows were under one roof at the Kentuchy Expo center. it is a huge complex. 

I hope to go again next year. Everyone that has any interest in military antique artifacts should try to go at least one time.

Even made it to a casino that was 20 miles away in Indiana.

Great show and I get to skip about 80% of the  tables as they're Nazi items lol!  I don't think people can understand just how large it is without walking through it.

The show is huge but seemed to have less tables then last year because of the gun show fiasco earlier.  That hurt the show, dealer wise.  Wish the club would buy their own building or make it a closed show for members only and say the public only on Saturday, so things like that don't happen again.  It hurts the collecting community.  Need a 'LARGE' sign at the ticket booth stating that "items shown inside may not be suitable for everyone, enter at your own risk" or something like that. Otherwise, it was another great show there and hope to see all at the Pittsburgh.
