    Out of curiocity,

    What is the difference with the various gund shows? It seems like that there is a gun show at the expo center ever month and a half.

    I don't know if it still applies but.........

    At one of the shows....if you show your Bi-Mart ID Card they'll discount your ticket $2. Hopefully, someone else will chime in as to which one.

    Aloha, Mark

    Collectors West is the show that has the BiMart discount. This weekend is a Wes Knodel show.

    As far as I've been able to determine, the vendors that show up are pretty much the same between the two sponsors.

    The different ones at the expo center are about the same. The arms collector shows are really different. I like them.

    Does anyone have an idea of what the dealers are asking for 5.56/223 ammo lately?

    Most are around 15 bucks a box of 20's

    As for the show, who cares. Overpriced and too many! I am over all these over priced shows

    Expo shows are off my radar.....too much non-gun related crap to fill tables......parking is too high....as is admission.
    Just my opinion.......

    Ten dollar entry fee.
    50 dollar boxes of 9mm fmj.
    It was actually cheaper to buy hollow points.

    Parking was nuts.
    Inside was crowded beyond belief.

    There was also a roadster show there this weekend which contributed to the parking problems. It's worth looking at what else is going on there to see if there's going to be problems.

    So that's what was going on - I work just across the bridge in Vancouver, and was doing some weekend OT. I got off at 2:00, and I-5 SB was a parking lot. I figured I's maybe check it out the next time...

    I picked up a new Glock 17 with 6 mags for $650. Given the climate, not bad at all. It seems like a good time to buy firearms, not ammunition. My favorite thing that I picked up, though is a Lyman mold #358156. Who needs to buy ammo when you can mold and load your own? Kip.
