ODT Gun Show & Swap Meet
May 6, 2023
Cobb County Civic Center
10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Tickets and Tables/Booths are on sale now! Here's a link to the ODT store:

Purchase Admission & Booths/Tables Here!

The last show was so fun we decided to do it again! @benmmc and I have partnered up for this one so it should be a much smoother process than last time. We have a better system in place for ticketing and table reservations, you'll be able to choose your actual table or booth right when you check out. Also tickets will be fully transferable so you can easily send them to someone else if you need to.

The gun show is open to all ODT members and friends/family. No outside advertising will be done for this event. Stay tuned to this thread, any major updates will be added to the top of this post.

We are not doing any packages this time, just General Admission and then we'll have shirts, hats, etc. available at the show.

Pricing is higher this time around but still very reasonable in my opinion.
  • Admission - $10 per person, children under 18 are free. 2,000 tickets available.
  • Tables - $50, includes 1 admission and 1 chair. Limit 1 table per person/company. 98 tables available.
  • Booths - $150, includes 2 admissions and 2 chairs. Limit 1 booth per person/company. 26 booths available. (A booth is 3 tables at the end of a row.)
Rules are the same as last time: No concealed carry is permitted. All firearms must be unloaded and secured with zip-ties. Zip-ties are available at the door for no cost. Tickets are transferrable. Free admission for children under 18. No strollers allowed.

****No refunds within 30 days of event.

Vendor setup will be Friday 12:00-6:00 PM and Saturday 8:00-10:00AM

I am going to try and get a food truck to come out, most likely a taco truck. (The concession stand was a big miss last time.) Let me know if anyone has one they can recommend.

Layout will be similar to the ODT10 show, just with less bleachers and more tables. Here's the layout:

If you have any questions please post in this thread and myself or @benmmc will try to answer as quickly as possible.
Can I get a blank ODTGS sticker for my cooler? I forgot to pick up a spare.

No, that was kind of a one time thing for our 10 year, 11 year, 12 year anniversary, and it was huge pain in the butt and very expensive :D

It isn't a sure thing yet, but we'll probably have some custom sticker name badges and lots of sharpies when you check in. That will also serve as your pass to go in and out of the building during the event.
Sincerely hope you are doing this again next year. Im in
 
Who had the table with some Berettas and Star pistols for sale on the right side of the 1st floor?

May have missed it. Out of curiosity, what was the head count? Seemed like it was sold out?

The ODT show wasn't quite as crowded as a normal gun show there. However I felt this show was much more crowded than ODT 10 was.

Thanks for a great event, I am curious also on the head count?

I had heard the normal gun shows there weren’t very good, I’m surprised they draw a larger crowd.

The other gun shows have more people because they are looking for jewelry and t-shirts.:rolleyes: Remember that this was a private affair and couldn't walk in off the street.
