    Never been to the Indy 1500 before. Might buy a gun tomorrow. Dose anyone know if the venders there take debit cards?

    Bring cash! You may find a good FTF deal, which will be cash only. Vendors will negotiate with cash, not plastic.

    Cash is what they like and what one can haggle with. All the good deals, ok most of them, were for cash only. I bought a nice 82nd Airborne t-shirt but that was really all I needed.:thumbsup:

    Bought 2 new factory 13 & 15 rd mags for my G33 for only $10 each. On the far North wall. Also bought a mag extension for my Kel-Tec P3AT. Looked at the new 2nd gen Fobus holsters also. Very sweet. Will have to get one soon.

    My father and I went on Friday and had a great time.

    I got a pair of navy 5.11 pants for $19 from the Popguns booth. That was my deal of the day.

    My dad, on the other hand, just recently purchased a Colt M4, so he went freakin' nuts buying "stuff". I had no problem living vicariously for an afternoon.

    Picked up 100 rounds of HST and 50 rounds of Ranger and some cleaning stuff for my new AR.

    Missed out on a $135 LNIB Maverick 88 with the 18.5" barrel. That one's gonna sting for awhile.

    I saw the $20 5.11 pants too . . . too bad they didn't have any in the right size for my fat @$$.

    Keep an eye out on Sigarms website. They sometimes have sales and I got a great deal on some SIGtac pants and shorts. They are pretty nice. If they have some that fit me, that have to have some that will fit you. ;)

    As for the 1500. I got tons of goodies.

    -Spyderco Endura 4 in foliage green to match my EDC Delica 4 in FG.
    -Spyderco Sharpmaker knife sharpener. Why didn't I get this thing sooner? It flat out rocks. :thumbsup:
    -Finished my light setup for my AR thanks to the flashlight people that are always at the gun show. It cost me a little more than I wanted, but it is MUCH better that my original plan. It consists of:
    *Surefire 6P LED light (wanted the G2 LED, but they were out and only charged me 10 bucks more for the 6P equivalent).
    *Vltor G series mount (a tad too big for the 6P, but a couple wraps of electrical tape on the body of the light shimmed it right up)
    *Surefire UU05 tapswitch tail cap. I have had two of the Tac Star ones and they both didn't work right, so I gladly paid for the better and more durable Surefire one and it actually worked the first time, unlike the Tac Star.
    *Surefire shock isolated bezel
    *Surefire FM47 beamcover
    It was kind of a chore getting all the parts together, but it is exacly what I want and cost about half of what SF charges for one of their dedicated weapon lights. I will be putting the exact same setup on my Saiga in the future.
    -A magazine for my High Standard Sport King. The guy with the big pegboard with magazines ziptied to it knew exactly what I was looking for right away and only charged me $20 which is better than I can find anywhere online for the same mag.

    Not at the gun show but bought this weekend:
    -Galati shooter's mat/riflecase/dragbag
    -7.62x54R ammo
    -mag for KelTec P3AT
    -50cal ammo can for storing stuff.
    -gun cleaning items

    It was a pretty good weekend shopping for gun and knife items. Now I know what women feel like when they go shopping. :supergrin:

    I picked up a Ruger P-95, a 15 round Glock mag, a new badge holder w/ chain, a box of .45 ammo, and another .50 ammo can to stash some of my surplus.
