    Just dont want it to be like the cleveland show last year. It was a bunch of bubbas with overprice stuff. I dont think i have ever been to this one before so its pretty much just a go and see thing. Would like to find some AR and scope parts

    most people at shows have over priced stuff lol.

    'tis a viscous circle. some try to keep their prices low to generate sales and repeat customers. however, with low(er) margins, means if the customer turnout is light, it's hard to turn a profit after expenses. So the net result is that some vendors and customers don't re-attend the shows.

    That's the same sponsor as the last show in Stinkadena. If the same dealers go it isn't too bad.

    They had lots of ARs, optics and whatnot. One table even had a Glock 42. I got my Python for a pretty good price from the last show. There were a few good deals here and there.

    Edit: Hmm no scratch that. Last Stinkadena show was a High Caliber one. Premier was the week before last. It still had lots of ARs and doodads though.

    So MOSTLY different vendors show at High Caliber vs Premier or am I off base?

    Generally speaking, which of the two is better?

    There's some vendors that go to both, like Texas Tactical Gear and the Clips R Us guy but I've noticed AJC only goes to High Caliber, and Schramm's only goes to Premier. I haven't seen Bachmann at any Houston show for a while. There's a couple other vendors I don't remember which show they like: The Gun Zone and K.K. Sales and the AK47/Saiga guy.

    U just gotta go to both to make sure u don't miss any real bargains.

    The HGCA show is where everyone shows up, but the last one was during SHOT show so it kind of suxed.
