Coastal Maryland is set to host a major gun show that brings some of the top manufacturers and distributors together at an event open to the public.

Dubbed the Mid-Atlantic Arms Expo, the massive show will be held at the Roland E. Powell convention center in Ocean City, Maryland, November 6-8 and brings “manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers and exclusive dealers together providing the finest and most comprehensive selection of firearms, related Industry goods and accessories in an open retail setting.”

Ever wanted to ask gun manufacturers face-to-face about their upcoming products? Ever wonder how you can get your local gun shop to carry your favorite brand? The Mid-Atlantic Arms Expo will give you that chance.

“Attendees will enjoy their first and only opportunity to interact directly with top industry manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, and exclusive dealers at a one of a kind interactive exposition,” the show’s promoters say. “Daily classes and seminars will be offered utilizing Virtual Firearm Simulators and professional instructors.”
