    Anyone going? It tends to be a bit bigger show than the Pasadena show, but paying to park is a PITA.

    We went today.

    First, I liked seeing the vendors doing well, lots of folks sitting at tables filling out paperwork.

    Not near as busy today as yesterday, but the folks selling were still happy.

    Good prices on AR magazines, got 10 Gen2 30 round no window PMags for $95.

    Saw a NIB AR for <$600

    Wide aisles made seeing the show easier than when it's at Conroe or Pasadena.

    Typical High Caliber vendors there, except for the guys that sell all the Saiga and Russian stuff (not there).

    Prices on ammo, with exception of .22, getting back close to normal.

    Lots of cheap auto knives.

    AR lowers <$100

    Saw a CZ-75 in bright stainless steel, unhappy to see it has the same crappy single action trigger pull as the one herself has, also checked other CZ-75s and they seem to be delivering less than optimal trigger pulls these days.

    Only saw on table with Tokorav's and he was asking $100 too much.

    Book guy had a table of $10 books, got a couple of good deals from that.

    Saw a few Ted Williams branded guns, have not seen that Sears product in such numbers in a while.

    Overall a good show............


    (Oh forgot to add, FREE PARKING :) Parked on the street next to the hotel parking parking garage--no meter charges on Sunday.)

    What was the sub $600 AR15? That is an impressively good price.

    It was an off brand (so many of those these days) and I can't remember. Typical M4clone style, cut/profiled barrel with front sight post, flat top upper with no rear sight, round hand guards, generic 6 position collapsible stock. Not as plain as a Sportical, but pretty basic. But it did come in a colorful box :)

    If I remember correctly it was on a bigger vendors tables about 3 aisles from the right, closest section to the front doors.
