I've gotten more open-minded about the value of a gunshow, though. To me anyway there's some value in having a wide selection of different stuff all in one place. If I can find for example halfway fair prices on reloading components, and make a bulk buy, then I'll save the $20 hazmat fee plus the S&H that an internet order would cost me. Buy a couple of things and end up saving some $ despite paying $8 to get in. And if you pay cash sometimes a reasonable discount can be applied. Overall I like going to the gun shows but one has to have the proper frame of mind for it.
