I went to my 1st gun show today. It was awesome. I bought a Gadsden tee, got an Romney / Ryan bumper sticker and joined the NRA. Time & money well spent. I could kick myself for not going to one sooner.
Have noticed that Wal_mart no longer carries .223 Ammo. Went into three different stores over the last few weeks and there was none to be had. I was not on an ammo hunt, but was in wally world for other things and went by the ammo cabinet just for to see...nada.
Well, if you’ve seen one gun; you want them all.
Better late than never.
I rarely buy guns at gunshows, but I do buy most of my ammo there as well as accessories and knick-knacks. Ours runs 5-6 times per year and I rarely miss it.
Good for you. I have not been to many, but have enjoyed the ones I have gone to. Generally, don’t find a lot of liberals there, which is always a plus.
I saw a lot of people joining NRA and lot more women & Minorities this time. There was even an all female gun shop represented.
I get all my dental picks at the show.
Went to a gun raffle yesterday. They raffled off about 150 guns. I won a rifle.
The past 30 days have been good to me.
3 weeks ago, we got thigh holsters for our Springfield XDM .45s, 2K rounds of .223, and a crystal knickknack I’ve been looking for.
I like to go to gun shows because there is a whole bunch of people who think just like me.
The one coming up in Tulsa is the best one I’ve ever gone to. They have it 2 times a year, spring & fall. Nov. 11 I believe is the weekend this time. It is huge, if you walk all the aisles, you will walk over 6 miles.
The last time I went to the Tulsa gun show was around 1988. I recall a couple of things about it.
First, it literally took all day to briefly look over each table. Second, I noticed the prices were generally better than here in Florida. Sometimes way better.
You are referring to the Tulsa Wanenmacher Gun Show on November 10-11, 2012. I go every year and last year actually saw people buying ammo by the pallet.
My daughter and her boyfriend go with me and we have a great time. My wife and son love to shoot but don't have the stomach for a whole day at a gun show.
noticed that. look everytime i go there andzero .223. they either are out of it or deliberatly withholding the stuff.
