Depends on the show. I've been to a few that had stuff for kids to do and see, and I've been to some that I didn't want to be in..Location makes a difference. Big arena leaves more room for all sorts of vendors...Hope that helps.Are gun shows family oriented? I have never been to one personally but there is one coming up Aug 1 in Green Cove Springs and my wife and I would like to go but we have a 2 year old. Would we be out of place if we brought him or should we be looking for a sitter?
