New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates, NEACA, Inc. will again host their popular Saratoga Springs Gun and Militaria Show this August 20 & 21. This is their 103rd Gun Show, referred to as an Arms Fair, held at the Saratoga Springs City Center. NEACA produced the very first City Center Trade Show in August of 1984 and has been there continuously for Thirty-two years. This may be their last invitation to the City Center!
Collectors and dealers of antique, classic and investment grade firearms from all over the northeast have gathered in Saratoga Springs to buy, sell and trade their wares several times a year. There are always interesting and historical offerings of Colt, Savage and Winchester firearms as well as rare pieces of Americana, military collectibles, quality reference books, Civil War swords and artifacts, thousands of guns, knives, ammo and accessories. It will be a stroll through history while perusing over 200 tables of vintage outdoor sporting items, Adirondack antiques or other unusual things that often appear at these shows; and this August Show is always well attended.
Interesting segments of New Eastcoast Arms Collectors events are collector displays presented throughout the show. This Arms Fair also includes prominent antique arms dealers, custom knife specialists and outdoors sports exhibits. NEACA always accommodates space to organizations such as local Fish & Game Clubs and Friends of the NRA groups. Persons wishing information about local hunting, fishing and shooting sports can find it through these clubs. One can also join the NRA while at the show, the best bet to protect 2nd Amendment rights and perhaps the best bet in Saratoga this year! And we always have several interesting exhibits for our ladies.
Dealers in fine investment firearms, wild life photography, vintage militaria and outdoor sporting collectibles will be in attendance as will be all the quality, local dealers from New York and New England displaying antique pistols, long arms, swords & accoutrements as well as Revolutionary War and Civil War artifacts. This will again be a premiere Arms Fair and a show not to be missed.
Many prominent area political figures will be there supporting our show and the Second Amendment. The list includes Kathy Marchione who will ask for petition signatures of support for continuing our shows at the City Center. Other supporters are expected and Eric Trump has been invited. If this current political climate continues, this August event may be the last Gun Show NEACA can produce in Saratoga and we ask that you show your support.

Our collectors and dealers are always looking for items to purchase from the public. Before visiting the show, check that attic trunk for old military uniforms or war souvenirs, the back closet for Grandpa’s old firearm or the garage for pack baskets, duck decoys, old animal traps or vintage fishing gear and bring it along to the show.
