Gun shows nowadays

8275 135
It has been a long time since I have been to a gun show. The last gun show I went to I was VERY disappointed. There were a lot of Knick knack tables...flea market type of items. I have been reading that a lot of this has been cleaned up.

But I think my biggest disappointment was paying $10 or $15 per person to get in and finding that everything in the show was VERY over priced. It was during the time that gun sales and prices were through the roof but I could have driven to an LGS just down the road and paid considerably less for the ammo and guns that were for sale.

So I am curious if all of this has changed or will it be more of the same?? I remember a day ( loooong time ago ) where you could go to a gun show and find deals on things you were looking for.

The quarterly one a the Big E in Springfield MA, repeats its self over and over again.

The same people selling the same stuff, including the guy selling the same "original" SS 44-dot tunic that looks suspiciously identical to the repro I have for 1/10 his price.

Don't forget the tshirt vendors. Everyone needs a shirt with an AR on it. Helps you blend in.
Or Chinese made plate carriers.

I like to collect weird camouflage jackets. I bought a Czech desert camo jacket at one a few years ago.

There's a room in the back. Wear DNC regalia. Crow flies at midnight.
Instead, try "The narwhal bacons at midnight."

Bring tendies

I go to shows to buy what's coming in the door. That $125 No1 Mk III that everybody passed on was a 1913 Lithgow. Almost broke my arm pulling the wallet out.
Admitted, there is the rare unicorn...
