Was considering driving up from Tucson for this show. How does it compare to the one @ the fairgrounds?

Thx,
Dan...

It's very small, costs $11, and comes with free parking.

I wouldn't drive to Tucson for it.

Same old dealers with the same old guns. More junk and knick-knacks than firearms.

I can understand you not wanting to go to gunshows.

I don't understand why you try and stop other people from going.

It's kind of like the old saying:

If a conservative doesn't want a gun, he doesn't buy a gun.

If a liberal doesn't want a gun, he doesn't buy a gun and he doesn't want anyone else to buy a gun either.

Really smacks of liberalism.

And by the way, your ignorance is showing. The Mesa show will be 99% firearms as usual and around 1% knickknacks. If you actually went to the shows, you'd know that.

With all the recent unfortunate happenings in our country. Mesa, despite the weather, likely will be quite busy. I remember the last time Nobama and the libs started shooting, (no pun intended), their mouths off. I had to wait in a long ticket line, just to get in. Not looking forward to that this time. With 110+ degree weather.

AZ Husker forgot to mention that going to AJI is a gun show, and you don't have to pay $11 to have your car broken into.

or that

I could spend the $11 on lunch and enough gas to hit AJI, Pistol Parlour and AZFirearms without ever having to unload my pistol and put a ziptie through it

But, if I did go, it would be to sell $500 stripped lowers. Let's see what congress does tomorrow :D

I'll go. I enjoy looking at the show. It's local and I usually pick up a magazine or something.

Obama and friends strike again. Got their after 11:30, and still had to stand in line to buy tickets. Thankfully the line was inside with the air conditioning this time. Place was packed, more so than usual for a Mesa show.

Did OK! Couldn't sell anything. Bought some neat stuff, so it worked out, as far as I was concerned.

I went today, Sunday, and it wasn't too bad, but a friend who has a booth there told me that the line went all the way around the building Saturday.

I guess we're in the panic mode again and people are buying up everything in sight.
