    Has anyone ever been to this event?

    If so, was it worthwhile going, or were you basically just torturing yourself for the few days, given all the things that you saw, but couldn't buy and bring home etc. ?

    I see that the next one is on from 24th - 29th January, and it got me thinking....

    Never been to that one.

    But if it is like any of the other German hunting conventions.It should be a good day out. It's a ticket open-to-the-public event unlike the {IWA in Nurnberg which is trade only].

    Indeed probably best to leave credit cards and other forms of currency in the hotel safe,and try not to laugh too hard at the fat multi nose ringed and multi hair colourd creatures of selective and dubious genders that will be waving placards and yelling from across the street.If they are present, they are an amusing side attraction.

    Been there a number of times, well worth the money.

    Plenty of kit you would like to take home, , what I like about it is all the big dealers are there see the latest Rifles Shotguns all the latest kit. Clothing that you not see over here.

    People very friendly, a very big venue anything from Shooting, Hunting, Food, big north American outfitters.

    I'm booked for Jan 23, very different that the CLA shows in England.

    Are the UK ones not worth going to? I was going to go over to this one:

    Be handy enough, could go over and back on the same day.

    First they came for the socialists...
