    The Walther, Glock, Beretta, and Ruger LCR's aren't to badly priced. Perhaps about 50 over on the G19. I'd say 50 bucks over what I would pay for an LCP9 with laser, 349 over what I would pay for a LC380, 800 to a grand over what a Colt AR is worth.

    I have no interest in Nylon 66's, or Sigs.

    That's pretty much what I've been seeing but I would have jumped all over that Sig P938 for $76 bucks. :tongueout:

    I went to one here in NY. Worst show ever. 11/2 hour wait to get in and everything way overpriced. Marlin .44 lever for $1K. Mosin Nagants $350. Just disgusting. Nothing worth buying.

    Had a gun show in Charlotte today. I saw on the news the traffic on the interstate was backed up for a mile on the exit ramp. Said they had to get extra police for security. Also stated the building was at full capacity and they had to limit how many people were going in. Sounded like it was a real madhouse.

    Sooner or later, the scarcity of ammo and the inflated prices for it will kill gun sales.

    What good is a handgun with an empty magazine?

    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.

    The "beauty" of HK. The guns and mags were both overpriced, and continue to be so.

    Forgot to mention, a guy was selling coffee cans of mixed .22 lr for $100. Loose handgun ammo .32 up to .45acp $1 to $2 each. Not collectible stuff, just individual Winchester white box. Just think 50 rounds of .45 $100.......

    Then the box of 100 .45 rounds I saw for 80 was somewhat of a "bargain" yesterday but the individual 50 round boxes of .22 for $15 each were a bit overpriced.
