    What are you looking for?

    I know a couple of dealers who can probably get you what ever you want, and beat the price of just about anyone else.

    I might trade my Taced-out ruger M-30 for a new Mini-14 Tactical but I would need extra for all my factory mags and ammo. But I aint driving 200 miles for a reaming, even if they blow in my ear!

    I plan on being there (it's been a while). Mostly in search of ammo.

    Hey bud, it depends on your caliber, but Surplus Ammo almost always has the best deal on bulk ammo at the show. Every month I go it's always the same, SA beats the rest. Nice guys too!

    This week I may be attending on the search for:
    -Blackhawk Level-3 Duty Holster for Glock-17
    -Marlin Model 60
    -Bulk CHEAP 9mm (SA usually has super cheap BVAC re-manufactured ammunition)
    -A couple hundred rounds of Gold-Dot 9mm 127gr+P

    I expect to at least find the ammo >.>

    Also, if anyone is interested, I've been wanting to get into the gun-show business scene. Anyone looking to take on an apprentice? I promise my Customer Service skills are top-notch!

    Never hurts to ask. Who knows, maybe a stressed booth-owner needs an employee for a weekend? Couldn't hurt to talk, will work for merchandise! :p

    I've never gone on Friday, thinking many sellers would not be there until Saturday. Is that really happening?

    Some of the best deals are on Friday early and Sunday late.

    This show is SOLD OUT also.
    There is the Military Vehicle Collectors setting up in there also, so it will be one of the better shows to go to.

    I like checking out all the stuff those dudes bring.

    If I sell enough stuff, maybe I can buy one of these at the show for $3,500
