    Anyone going. I'm probably going to miss it seeing as we have our DFW shoot on Sunday, and a BD dinner to help put on for my SIL Saturday. But that one (The Original Fort Worth Gun Show) is about the best that passes through. Most vendors at least.

    Ahh, maybe I can sneak out for a couple of hours in the afternoon on Sat.

    Of the two that cycle through the Will Rogers, "The Original Fort Worth Gun Show" as it is call is the best I think as compared with the other one "High Caliber". Sometimes there are so many vendors they've got to open a second room. But you never know on gun shows. Might just be all beef-jerkey. :rofl:

    If you go, google up their web site. You can print out coupons for $1.00 off entry. Last one I went to, a women had printed out a boat load of them, and passed them out to everyone in line (until she ran out)

    One of the reasons I was thinking of going is there is a women that does the custom molded ear plugs, while you wait (about 1/2 hour). I think they are about $40 or so.

    Hmm, that's an extra $1 for jerky! :happy0001:

    They had the custom ear plugs at the Denton show. I was going to get a pair done but there was a small crowd so I passed.

    Tim doesn't want to go but I do. Well, he can stay here, I'll go by myself! :rofl:

    Anyone go to the Fort Worth show today? I saw plenty of ammo at crazy prices, but did not see it flying out the door. The line was somewhat normal and most came in with nothing in their hand and left with nothing. A lot less overpriced ar's walking around and back out the door.The large dealers didnt have them lined up 5 deep to buy and the dealers I talked to were in agreement that it had slowed a lot.My theory is that there has been 4 months of frenzy and some have spent their entire year plus of budget. I went to my local Wally Fri night and asked for 22. They had three bricks of Rem Hollow points behind the counter and I bought one, 17.95, left 2 for someone else.I heard a couple of ammo dealers trying to explain why they wanted 25.95 for a brick of federal bulk pack but never heard them say I am trying to gouge, or I was stupid and overpaid for it and would still like to get my money back. EAT IT! :texas:Just my obversation.
    Be Safe.

    And I don't like that one bit!

    The local gun shops are also posted.

    Maybe I should post my property as "No Gun Shop Owners or Gun Show Vendors on this Property!"
