    So i went to this gun show.. i DID pick up a box of SMK 69 grs for 17 bucks..

    But some of these idiots.. 60$ for a box of berry's 9mm bullets.

    35$ for a used RCBS Bullet Puller.. i mean really? WTF

    I take it that the $60 box of 9mm bullets wasn't for 1k bullets. In my experience with gun shows, there might be some deals there but you really have to search for them. :supergrin:

    It's almost the end of the world, (again) so sellers are trying to make a buck or two........

    It's always buyer beware, why are you surprised? I go to gun auctions about 4x a year & see people paying more for a used gun than a new one at the local over priced GS. You have to knwo what is a good price, avg price & great price, for anything.:dunno:

    I just went into a local gun shop where they had CCI large pistol and large rifle primers for $43 / 1,000.

    I haven't found any good deals at gun shows in a couple years.
    I still go when I am bored. Think last time I bought reloading stuff at a gun show was about the time of the first O bummer win, ammo rush.

    From the gun shows I wen to you have a hard time finding deals. Deals being paying retail.:whistling: Lots of junk too with ammo in baggies. I don't go to them often because they don't seem to ever have what I want at them and I know of this place called the internet.

    When you add it the price of admission and your gas - what was the price of the SMK?

    Buy at LGS or on line usually less expensive then any gun show.

    I used to go often then I added it up: $5 parking + $8-10 to get in + gas = shipping of my powder and primers.

    Here's a tip - at Sportsmans warehouse - you don't hve to pay them to get in - no matter what the bum in the parking lot tells you.

    It's been awhile since I've been to a gunshow around here but it seems everytime I go there are fewer tables with gun related items and more and more toys, lamps and knick-knack type crap.

    Not to mention standing in line to get in! I am too old to stand in line for anything anymore, certainly not 2hr for a crappy gun show.:yawn:
