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.
Got this in an email
Marlin Firearms [is closing it’s doors]
THIS GUY SOROS IS FAR MORE DANGEROUS THAN OBAMA, WHO IS SIMPLY ONE OF HIS “DOG ROBBERS” OBAMA WILL BE GONE AFTER AWHILE, BUT WHAT WILL BE LEFT IS WHAT SOROS & HIS CRONIES WANT.
The best way to take away the guns, is to buy all the companies. Read on. Another sneaky underhanded job by Obama.
Read and Weep
Marlin Firearms is already closing its doors!
They are doing it to us, America! Even if you do not own a gun you need to know this. This needs to be spread to all gun owners and sportsman. We cannot rely on the media to inform us of these types of matters.
Something You May Not Know That Is Happening ... Who is buying companies, manufacturing guns??? For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers. Some of the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R.
Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States. If you control the manufacturers you can decide to
stop selling to civilians.
What a perfect way to control guns. Now if you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management. Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS!!! He wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns. Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out. Why have we not heard about this in the “mainstream” media? I would think this would be BIG news. (Soros also owns Progressive Insurance). If you don’t know who George Soros is, you need to do some Research. He backed Obama with millions of dollars and Obama is a puppet on a string controlled by Soros. Send this to every gun owner in America.
Thanks. Do wonder about silent partnership
Probably just out of it. I live in a rural area, and the three Walmarts I go to have plenty. One had about a dozen of the 420 round cans of .223 earlier this week.
That said, good luck finding .22LR bulk packs around here. They sell out almost immediately. That same Walmart had *none* in stock, except for the 1600 round cans of CCI Minimags and I wasn’t up for spending $100 that day.
Ah, the good old days! I recall them fondly. But whoever said ‘better late than never’ is right. Gun shows are still awesome.
For your viewing pleasure.
Subject: Fw: Armed robbers get owned by Marine
The Marines and the rest of the U.S. Military are
the reason this country stays free and safe.
The folks at the show were all polite & friendly as well .
Also courteous & helpful that is what I have found over the last 30 years of attending gun shows.
No longer carries, or can’t keep in stock? Local Wally’s has plenty.
No stock....the items are listed in the cabinet, just none there. Asked the clerk and he said none to be had at Wally’s. Can get it at gun shops with no problems. Just Wally world for now.
