Albany & Syracuse Gun Shows


July 21, 2020

It is with sincere regret and sadness that we must announce that the September 19-20, 2020 Syracuse Gun Show has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 virus. It is a huge disappointment to everyone involved. But, it is the right & responsible thing to do. Our major concern is the health and safety of our vendors, members and public who attend. It’s just too much of a risk to go forward with this show.

Many of you called with concerns and suggestions to cancel and hope for our April show. We truly appreciate all your concerns and for caring.

There are so many, many reasons we came to this decision. I won’t go into each one here; but it’s been 4 months of worrying, the logistics just not feasible, and the painful decision finally made. I’m afraid I just can’t make 225+ calls this time around, but please know we care about each & every one of you. Feel free to call if you have any questions, or just want to chat.

If you have already paid for your tables, they will be rolled over to our April show. If you hadn’t yet paid, we’ll hold your tables for you.

PLEASE note 2021 Syracuse show dates:

April 17-18, 2021

September 18-19, 2021

We thank all of you for your dedication and support the past 55+ years of Syracuse shows and pray that we can get back to something close to “normal” for 2021. None of us could have dreamed something like this pandemic could happen and bring so many things to a halt, but we’ll strive to get back to succeeding in the near future.

Please, everyone take care, stay safe and well, and God Bless y’all.




Keep watching our site for updates and cancellations.

New York requires all firearms sales at gun shows to be processed by a licensed dealer.  Prospective purchasers are subject to the same background check process that applies to retail firearm transfers and all dealers processing transactions must record the transfer, retain the transfer records for 10 years, and make the records available to law enforcement. A National Instant Criminal Background Check must be completed prior to all firearm sales or transfers, including sales or transfers of rifles or shotguns.
