Collectors Arms Dealers Association

When discussing quality gun shows for serious arms collectors, those sponsored by the Collectors Arms Dealers Association (CADA) are considered to be among the best. One of the oldest national arms dealers’ organizations, CADA currently concentrates on the greater Chicagoland Illinois area but has also held shows in New England, Florida, and Denver.

The upcoming show at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton IL, will feature some of the best-known and respected dealers in collector-quality guns, swords and militaria from across the country. Though not as large as some gun shows, CADA’s gun shows are highly respected for the quality of their offerings. As a result, our gun shows attract serious collectors of quality guns, antique firearms, swords, knives, and more. Indeed, comments such as “It’s almost like being in a museum!” are often heard from attendees.

Finally, CADA’s gun shows have also earned the respect of the authorities in an era when “gun” is all too often considered a four-letter word. We always invite the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to take a table at our shows and they’ve frequently accepted, passing out literature and answering questions about gun ownership and transfers. We’ve also been told that the Illinois State Police consider our shows to be the cleanest and most responsible in the state.

Membership in CADA is limited to dealers with stellar reputations; Unethical or illegal behavior is not tolerated. We pride ourselves on the quality of our membership and the quality of our shows.
