    Did anyone attend the gun show today at the GRB? I was thinking of going on Sunday but I went to the last Pasadena gun show and was very disappointed. If anyone went today what was it like?

    Thanks :fighting0002:

    I went yesterday (Sunday), and was quite disappointed. However, there's a thread about it in the Events forum where a couple guys said they thought it was good. I'm not sure if they went on Saturday when things may have been better. Ammo was in very short supply (understandably so), and there seemed to be quite a few less vendors than normal. It kinda looked like most of the smaller dealers are down to just the "dregs" of their inventories. I was there from 10am to about 11:30am, and there were probably 50% less attendees than the last couple months worth of shows in Houston and Pasadena.

    Chicom AKs for $850 and Yugo SKS's for $400 are "not tooo crazy"? Coming from a guy who's bitching about range fees....:rolleyes:

    It's OK, his cancellation request will likely be processed when the Cancellation Department returns tomorrow and start catching up anyway. :rofl:

    whoww.. lets keep the gloves up fellas.. for me the prices were great as i was looking for a few different pistols or maybe a shotgun or two.. and the ammo was not too overpriced.. keeping with the fact that it was there unlike most retail stores..

    range fees.. ya i was surprised at how much it cost to shoot here in houston. im comming from an indoor range that would let me shoot year round unlimited time for $300 a year membership. I would go 2 to 3 times a month for about 2 hours a pop.
    I have yet to find an outdoor range here in texas that could hold a candle to the Angeles range in cali. $14.00 to shoot all day, unlimited rifles/ pistols. 70 benches just on the rifle side, It was a sweet layout

    So you don't want to talk about the fact that you bad-mouthed TexasGunTalk and asked for a cancellation of your membership, but are still posting here? Okay, we don't have to. :rofl:

    I have to......you threw a fit and said you were out of here and to cancel your membership. A quite childish tantrum I might add. It's to be expected that you'll get razzed for a while since you've obviously decided TGT doesn't suck as bad as you once claimed it does.

    This is off topic however, and I for one will not participate in such violation......more than 2-3 times a day. :lolz:
