The last intel I got was the show must go on. That is subject to the queen commie's directive. For accurate intel it is best to contact ARPC direct.
Man, you had me worried! I was going to suggest you'd never been to the ARPC show.Yeah, who cares... Gun shows suck anyhow, beanie babies, jerky, sequined purses, overpriced junk and hucksters galore... Good riddance...
Somebody was going to come along and say it sooner or later, weren't they?
Just kidding! I'm as disappointed as the rest of you, been looking forward to this one for months. I even like lame promoter shows, but the ARPC show is the best in the state.
I’m actually a big fan. It just seems that any time gun shows are mentioned on this forum, there’s always half a dozen guys who jump in to bash them and complain about what a waste of time they are.Man, you had me worried! I was going to suggest you'd never been to the ARPC show.
Heavens NO. There's already way too many people there. But we always go first day at opening. Speaking of such. I changed my ways and went to the OAC BIG show at the Holiday Inn last week on Sunday, at noon. So relaxing. Quiet and really enjoyed talking with vendors that weren't real busy.I admit, gun shows in general aren’t what they used to be, but anyone who hates on gun shows really needs to attend an ARPC show to have any idea what a gun show SHOULD be.
I know EXACTLY whom you are describing, and I do the same thing! I'm going to miss this very much!There is an old timer and his son who set up on the north wall at the ARPC show, over near the concessions. I buy something from those guys every year. Just the coolest collections of 1903's and Mausers. I will miss seeing them.
At the antique show last week, "MASKS REQUIRED" signs on the doors. We donned our chihuahua diapers on our face and went in. Good show. As we were leaving, my buddy made an observation, saying, "So, what's with the mask thing? Is it optional or what?" I agreed that the "percentage of compliance" was in a range approaching Biden's job approval rating.Bummer. I was kind of hoping they would say enough is enough and forge on ahead with the show.
Mask mandates have sure been a success, though. Not at stopping the virus, but at destroying virtually every festival, fair, show, concert, event, and get-together for the last 18 months...unless it's an antifa protest.
Looks like they found the loophole to stop gun shows...
