    Absolutely incredible! Good thing the iPhones are water resistant because I have drool all over mine hahah thanks David!

    I understand the rarity of such a table spread, but really wish there was a show/dealer equivalent in Canada. Slim pickings here, and the shows are not even comparable to that of the EU. Very hard getting hands on experience over here SAD FACE

    I believe last show was 2200 tables. The hall is huge, lots of room between tables. Only time it gets a bit crowded is Friday afternoon & Sat when they allow non OVMS members in (general public). But by Thursday evening, we usually have spent about every dollar we brought.

    That's why attendees to both the SOS (~2000 tables) and MAX (~1000 tables) fly in from different continents. If you came down from Canada, you would hardly have traveled the furthest. You should do it.

    Very true! I didn’t even realize this was USA until now. Looks like I will have to make the pilgrimage to Kentucky once I’ve padded my wallet haha

    It is worth the experience. Attendees travel from Russia...that's a long way off. Japan in no "trip around the corner either" nor the crew from Norway & Italy.

    I call the SOS the "Superbowl" of our hobby. My attendance has been spotty over the years due to being in the Army and living abroad and then after the Army I also took a long break from the hobby. Now that I am back in the game 100% I intend to go every year if possible. At a minimum you should attend one SOS and one MAX just to see for yourself what the big circuses look like. Be warned: last SOS I spent so much money I questioned my sanity when I got home.

    Amazing photos. For those of us who live outside the US, America is the "El dorado" of German militaria. Such a volume of quality pieces, and often at lower prices than in other countries.
