    Hey congrats to you on the deal to our fellow Glocker on the deal on the 32 at his local gun show


    I have one coming up in Mesquite this weekend. Anyone have any luck on some good deals at this one or should I wait for the one in Feb in Fort Worth. I have been to both in the past, but not recent, and not sure if I will be able to get the best deal at the Mesquite one because it is typicallly smaller.

    I am looking to add a Glock 30 to my ever present 23.

    Any experience is greatly appreciated.

    That Mesquite show was really small when I was there a few months ago. I don't recall which company was putting it on. Big Town is a lot bigger, as is the Ft Worth show. If you are close to Mesquite, it can't hurt to go. I just wouldn't expect too much. As you may know, if you really want the best deal on a Glock join GSSF or get the public safety discount if you are eligible.

    tri - thanks buddy - took the advice and signed up for the family membership. I figure if 1 cert is good then another 1 for Mrs Dregotglock should be even better.

    Tks again

    Careful my friend or "your" Glock might become her Glock.

    If you are looking to buy,the best deals will be at the Mesquite gun show. Simply because there is alot of spending money floating around Ft.Worth right now because of Barnett Shale,,, The public is selling in Dallas and buying in Ft. Worth...

    The Market Hall show is the best IMO.

    Isn't Market Hall this week, along with the Mesquite Rodeo? Was thinking about hitting it tomorrow. Did you make it down today?
