Wish I would have saw this post earlier, I would have warned you about this outfit. Big Top (aka Big Flop) shows are the worst. There's lots of negative reviews about them on this forum. As you suspected, it is one vendor (LC Sports) operating as a traveling gun shop. Everything is outrageously overpriced, and you won't find any cool old guns or collectibles, just really expensive new firearms/ammo and low-quality accessories.For anyone wondering, Gun show was as expected. Lame.
There was exactly 1 vendor selling firearms. The selection was what you'd expect in a good sized gun shop.
They would not buy, trade, or facilitate private sales.
There were the normal accessories vendors. I suspect the same vendor as was selling firearms actually.
Some pretty custom leather holsters for 1911's, a bunch of crap universal holsters, flashy low quality knives, some nice knives, ammo and magazines, flashlights...
Some high quality accessories, but mostly just cheap, knockoff, black, tactical, etc wish or Alibaba quality stuff.
Firearm markup was about 20-50% on most things.
Ammo markup was 40-100%, averaging 60-70%.
Markup on other things was mostly 20-100%.
In short, it was really just a traveling gun shop that was overpriced even after paying to park and paying to get in.
Signs posted said no loaded guns except for on duty cops, but there was no checking for compliance.
Gun shows aren't what they used to be no matter who is putting them on, but you always want to avoid the Big Flop shows. Maybe try a Wes Knodel show if you get the urge to go to another one.
