Yep I was at the one in Charlotte today. They announced over the intercom that the fire marshall shut the admissions until more people left.
Got there around 9am and it was retarded packed. Had to stand in line while it was snowing. Needless to say there weren't many deals. Two of my friends picked up a bitone XDM for $600 and a M&P 9c for $500. Nothing to write home about but they won't lose sleep with what they paid.
Honestly I wouldn't bother going as its so packed. Had a couple friends show up after I did and leave after seeing the line lol. I'm sure its not worth going to most gun shows across the nation until things die down.
Saw the Walther PPX for $399, thought that was pretty interesting. I also saw a Sig P224 and was surprised by how compact it was. I thought it would be bigger than it actually is.
