Let them keep their ammo and their over priced guns. When you can buy from retail stores cheaper, there is something wrong. I have not seen one table at a gun show beat Academy's prices in 2 years. I guess as long as there are people willing to over pay at these shows, they will keep gauging them. I just bought 7 boxes of Blazer Brass 9mm for 8.97 a box at wal-mart but you have to buy it when they have it because it does not last long. I understand supply and demand but this is crazy. At least the beef jerky was priced about right as long as you do not add in the price of admission.Ok, got back from this Denton Gun show. We left with a package of $6 jerky.
Several signs about no loaded fireams (specifically including CHLs) outside on the windows facing the parking lot, and a 30.06 sign inside, located AFTER the pay/entry tables. We had to go walk out to the truck after walking all the way to te building. We parked in the lot right next to the access road because it was a zoo.
An ok amount of tables. What I am disappointed in is the severe lack of friendliness from table vendors. Pathetic actually. The two friendliest vendors were at leatherwork/gear tables. Excellent gentleman to talk with.
Ammo was still priced high. Though I tell you what, CheaperThanDirt had a table with ammo for $2 less than their website prices. Wow, what a..bargain? Not really. Still $22 for a 50rd box of 9mm.
Lots of $1200 AR rifles. Lots of hunting rifles. Lots of revolvers and polymer guns.
I did like looking at the Colt New Agent, Colt Defender, SA Ultra Compact 9mm (I wanted that one) and this great Colt Rovolver .22lr.
Interesting show but we were getting hunry and were sick of all the people who don't wear deoderant. Maybe I ought to vendor a table with personal hygeine products at the next show.
