    Gun Show

    Small gun show this weekend near my house and I have to go. You know to just check out the "deals". Let's hope I don't need a shopping cart.

    My wife hates it when I go to gun shows, because I usually come back home with a firearm that I happened to find a great deal on and I just couldn't pass up.

    OGCA is the only ones worth going to anymore. I've been going to them for at least 15 years, going all the way to Cleveland when they were at the I-X center.
    Goodmans and the others just annoy me anymore.

    I usually go to the Tampa Suncoast gun shows....they are ok; nothing to get all excited about.

    Enjoy your gunshow! Let us know if you get something.

    Well guys i spent the whole weekend shopping and only spent 32.00 on gun stuff (bersa mag) Prices were crazy and the show sucked. Only had like 20 tables. A used HK compact for 785? HMMM that looks just like the one I traded to that same guy at the last show. He'll have it for a while. One show and 7 gun stores later I came home empty. What a day

    I'll second that. The last time I went to a Goodman's show the deals didn't even justify the price of admission. Bob Pope's shows use to have better deals but it's been a few years since I been to one so that may have changed too.

    The gun shows aren't what they used to be. Went to one in sanford and upon arriving we found the gun show had been canceled with out any notice. There was not even a note on the door. I usely go to the Sun Coast show in Lakeland Fla which I rate as being fair to good.

    Here in Utah the "Crossroads of the West" gun shows are starting to get pretty lame. Too many non-gun vendors. I can find about 10-15 booths on swords, WW2 junk, stickers, etc...

    All I ever get is the Dixie Gun/Knife Classic where I am. Sometimes it is good but most of the time it is all Assault rifles and WWII Memorabilia, and half of those tables will not sell the weapons just want to show them off.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
