Where and when are all the gun shows in NS? Firearms Canada does not even list one show for NS and I am having a hard time finding any information online. Thanks for any help.

Are they worth attending is the question. Been years since I have maybe they have improved. I remember hitting one a few times in NB that was worth the drive. Is that still taking place if I recall it was around april or may.

Most times they are not worth it.... same old rifles and shotguns that they want 3X too much for....That being said I still go to get out for a day trip :P

The shows can all be hit or miss but I've always had good luck I guess. I've bought a couple of rifles in excellent shape in the last two years, one at a very good price and another one at a very reasonable price. None were overcharged but I knew what I was looking for and the prices that were expected. It's also a good time to hang out with friends and be in the company of other hunters and gun collectors and often their families. That's pretty hard to beat in my opinion.

Do they have lots of reloading gear? I am looking to get some 30-06 and 6mm rem dies.

yes you would stand a good chance of picking up either new or used dies in those calibers.
