    The wife and I are making the trek to Sparta to attend the Grand. Use to go to Vandallia. Are they as many vendors? Might be buying a DT11 or something there.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are not as many vendors but I like Sparta. The people are very friendly and u can't beat Southside Ribs for dinner. I shoot sporting Clays when not shooting trap. Plenty of guns for sale.

    I never went to Vandalia, but I can't imagine "more" vendors! As you dive up the drive at Sparta, all the buildings to your right are permanent buildings of dealers and manufacturers. Beretta, Winchester, Promatic, Guns International, etc.

    To the left of the Events Center are all of the tent dealers and vendors! Schultz, Fairchild, all the gunsmiths, etc.

    You should have no problem finding what you are looking for! Martinpicker

    Plenty of venders. Don't forget your salt tablets and umbrella.

    I am sure that there were more at Vandalia but then again at most of the shoots over the past several years there has been less and less vendors.

    I don't think there were many more in Ohio. Went to atleast 10 there and 5 in Sparta. It is just more organized in Sparta.
