    ^This. SOMEBODY has to be the liberal headquarters for the state of Texas. Austin drew the short straw.

    San Antonio!
    It wasn't by chance, but by choice.

    Premier also started with a show within Austin, but quickly moved away just like SAXET. The local government has done everything within (and sometimes outside) their power to discourage gun shows in Austin. Unfortunately, the pro-2A folks in that town are badly outnumbered by the cowering liberal sheep.

    Essentially, any town that supports a 'Cocks Not Glocks' campaign isn't going to be supportive of 2A rights! Check out these Austinite snowflakes... :(

    And of course, the result was a town full of dicks!

    I try to go to the Round Rock Premiere show when it comes around. Parking is tough but there is a decent amount of stuff to see.

    I think Carl Rowe refers to Austin as "Moscow on the Colorado" :-)

    More like Austin drew the short bus. This city's leadership is wacked out on crack cocaine. Bad decision making all around.

    Can a city with less than half the population of Houston end up with even worse traffic? Apparently yes.

    parking is atrocious. The last two times I've just parked at the Holiday Inn that's right next to it and walked over.

    What about the show in Taylor put on by "The Real Texas Gun Show"?

    I would assume it is small but who knows.

    Small is the key and the prices are ridiculous!!!

    599 for a ruger security six 750 for a beat up mini 14 etc. 499 for a polish pps43 649 for a sig p320 compact 40sw. These are some of the examples. From the show.

    I walked out. I can go to guns warehouse and get fair pricing. I bought a p320rx full size for $700 and a sig p320 45 for $499 from them.

    Premier show this weekend at the Round Rock Sports Center, behind the Jack Allen's at I-35 and Old Settler's Blvd. Premier has always put on a good show but they seem to have kicked it up a notch since they moved to this venue.

    Parking is a little tight, so be warned. In the past I've had to jump the curb on the road behind the center and park in the grass. There are a number of other businesses in the area but I don't know how particular they are about people parking in their lots and walking over.

    How was the premier show this past weekend? More guns than junk? I could not go due to surgery.
