    Sat Oct 6 / Sun Oct 7 @ fairgrounds IIRC.

    haven't been to a fun show since i was a teenager.

    what are the rules?

    can i bring items to sell or trade?

    are most transactions face to face?

    The last one I went to at the Fair Grounds was pretty weak. That's been YEARS ago though (like 7). I would have hoped that it would have improved, but I can't say for sure.

    I have since seen what a busy gun show looks like, and I can say beyond a doubt that other cities I've been to have busier ones than Memphis does.

    we're back. some major price gouging / inflated prices on most firearms. very few surplus/militaria arms compared to the hunting and handgun offerings.

    i was hoping for cases of milsurp ammo in 7.62x39/54 but found none. mostly reloads and some by the box OTC stuff, triple-marked up from wallymart prices (think bricks of .22 LR for $24).

    picked up some bdu's, a winter jacket, a few 30 and 40 round AK mags, and four brand new 40mm ammo boxes. BRAND NEW, perfect seals, etc.

    entry was $8 per and there's a coupon available for $1 off each that you can print online here. overall ok and i'd go back again next year, but not at all what i expected. it WAS fairly busy but i'd rate the attendees as 80% "fudds", 10% mall ninjas, 10% thug wannabe's, 5% the rest of us. :)
