Saxet gun show draws eager buyers (TX)
KXAN ^ | Jan. 26, 2013 | John Bumgardner

This is the first day of the gun show since the City of Austin discussed possibly banning from the Travis County Expo Center. State law, however, prevailed because the move would have proved illegal in Texas... “It took 20 minutes to park the truck and about an hour waiting in line,”

Another group, One Million Moms for Gun Control marched at the Texas Capitol... The group expected over 100 participants to join in the Austin event.

The wacky libs in Austin, TX were told they couldn't ban the gun show.

Compare the 100 expected at the protest to the hour long line just to get into the show.

As an aside...study the best ammo for your weapons. That which is good for practice...and that which is good for defense.

Some (not much) is still available online.

Get it!

I can share my purchase experiences in the last week. Freep mail me if you are in the market. I will share what I know and add to your research if I can.

New math? 100 is almost 1,000,000?

There was a gun show here in southern ILL (Effingham) also today, hubby went & he said he estimated 600 to 700 people just milling around in there at one time. The parking lot was jammed & the mall was busier than it was even at Christmas. Grandson said he was there when the door opened at 8 a.m. & there were a lot waiting to get inside the door.
Illinois has the background check & has for years but the criminals usually steal the guns they use anyway.

There is a gun show here in Houston today and tomorrow.

I always get a warm and fuzzy feeling when I go to a gun show.

Liberals should be allowed in without an entrance fee just to show them that gun owners are the most polite and considerate citizens.

They all have a problem with numbers. Add a zero to any number, and they go guano.

But we still need to get all those people who show up for the gun shows to be politically active to win.

Hubby and I were there. We got there around 9am, but still waited in the line for 50 minutes to get in. People were patient although the line seemed endless. Everyone was polite. So many kids there. It is definitely one of the safest places for kids! :)
