I (luckily) arrived later in the day. Saturday 4-18-09. Two people in front of me buying tickets and I was the only one having my guns made safe.
I was told by many how crowded it was before I arrived. The guy checking my guns said the line went back Way over there, and it was 2 lines, one for just admission and one for the gun check.
I was able to get two of the things I have been looking for.
Pearce Grip extensions +0 for my Glock 36, and rubber speed strips for my SP101 .357. (At most of the local gun shops, when I inquired about speed strips they would look at me like I grew a third eye, not know what I was referring to, then say We gots these speed loaders, they be round and all).
Ammo was way to much money. The price of target ammo is now what SD ammo Was.
P.S. The background for the pics is a ShamWow, from the dude that got arrested in Miami
