Don't forget to shower before you come to the show.

I don't know why others go, but I go because I invariably get things for a much cheaper price than I can on the internet, cheap enough to pay for the tickets, parking, hot dog, etc and a little left over. This especially applies to reloading supplies and cleaning supplies and yes, I do have Amazon Prime and still get it cheaper....and I don't have to wait for 2 day shipping, I take it home immediately.

In this day and age, I can't understand why people don't go to them unless they don't realize what bargains there are if they're willing to look hard enough.

Flash, I need to tag along with you next gunshow and have you negotiate prices for me. I can never find a deal. I think its because I usually go on the first day. Maybe I should wait til the last day when sellers dont want to pack up stuff to take back.

Either way, why not go? Get to spend time looking at gun stuff!

The place is full of deals. What helps a lot is having two sets of eyes looking as Mrs. Flash is informed of what's on the wish list on the way into the show.

Extra power Glock striker springs, regular $5.00/ea, $7.00/two at the show.

Bullseye powder, 8 lbs, $150.00 OTD

MecGar 18 round Sig P226 Magazines, $27.95/ea

And of course, Winchester SPP $24.95/1,000

There's a guy there ever show who sells hardback and paperback books. Typically $3.00 ea for paperback and between $8.00 and $10.00 each for hardback. I buy enough books from him that he typically gives me 3 hardbacks for $20.00.

Man. You need to get kindle. I pay $10 a month and read as many kindle unlimited books as I can. I read between 3 and 5 books a week so average 4 a week x 4 weeks and that's 16 books. Less than a dollar each and I don't have to get rid of all the paper backs or hard cover books. I never read a book more than once so having them on shelves is a waste of space.

I like to go to the shows but I look at guns and gun related items. Mostly end up buying enough to justify the ticket cost. Plus, hey, it's fun to look at and touch all those nice guns.

I got there early this morning at opening at 0900. I would guess about 1/4 of the tables were empty still. Prices on AR were decent. One table was selling S&W AR's for around $520. Taurus PT111 for $220 with extra mag. Really the only screaming deals that I saw. Most of the stripped lowers were still over priced. The 80% lowers were way over priced.

I loved the table selling the oil/fuel filters and adapters. Looked like someone gave a AR some Viagra.

Of course there were the obligatory smelly mouth breathing basement dwellers and guys wearing tactical gear.

I found some good deals on 1000 pieces of fired 10mm auto brass, brand new set of Dillon 44mag dies, 3k Winchester SRP with the older nickel finish, 3 25 round windowed (2 with KE Arms plus base plates) and 4 20 round 308 Pmags, 6 Okay/Colt 30 round 5.56 mags and a Mechtech 1911 upper in 10mm. I also bumped into a couple AZS guys.

Place was ridiculously crowded before 1PM, did they put the tables closer together than normal? This is usually the slowest show of the year, not sure what was going on. Saw good deals on new stuff, but used stuff was overpriced in many cases. Miwall had good prices. Ruger AR lowers for $99 seemed like a good deal, I'm sure its a decent lower.

8lbs of Bullseye can be had for 116.96 + Tax at Bruno's although for $2 more I'd suggest 8lbs of BE-86 as it will also work in 10mm.

I do have kindle and I also read between 3 and 5 books a week. At this point I have around 100 books on my iPhone.

I just like to have certain books on hand and he just happens to have those certain books I want.

Yeah, $127.06 including tax and it's 110 miles r/t trip my house and I get 20 mpg, so I could save $12.00 or so not counting wear and tear on my car.

Mrs. Flash and I got special "packs" from the Crossroads people for standing in line outside in inclement weather. Got a few knives, a permanent match and 2 boxes of .22LR plus the 2 "packs". Anybody else get one?

It was very crowded in all the buildings. Lots of slow lumbering people that would just stop in the middle of the isle. It did seem that tables were closer together and it created a bottle neck whenever one of the lumbering hulks would stop.
