    Mad house. Ammo in short supply, few cases, all moving fast. Pistols moving quickly, I was waiting 35 minutes to sign for my latest Glock, I saw 4 other glocks being sold by just this one seller. Tacital rifles also moving quick. Prices on pistols about the same as this time last year, rifles a lot more pricey. A line was over 200 hundred yards long to get in at opening, 0900, at 1015 when I left they had the lot full, and were parking in the grass.

    I got there at 9:40. Got to the ticket window at 9:50, when I noticed a sign at the window sayiing .380 ammo was low. I couldn't even get to the guy selling ammo, because he was surrounded by people, 3 persons deep. I finally got close enough to buy what I wanted (except for .380 ammo, they were out), but then had to wait 15-20 minutes just to pay him. I can't remember seeing it that crowded. As TXBSAFH said, "Mad house".

    I arrived at 10:10. I should have taken the hint when I saw every lot full and over 100 cars in the grass on the west side. But on I trudged. The line was so long to get tickets I could not see the end, so I hesitated..... then when a guy I knew said the maximum capacity would soon be reached inside and it would be a wait to get inside, I gave up to go eat Mexican food.

    I hope a good time was had by all. Without ME. :mad:

    Did you go to Mamacita's on Spencer?;) Like I said before, it WAS crowded. But I managed to get some ammo (.38 super) that I haven't been able to find. I was sorry about not getting any .380acp. I really like shooting my Bersa. I also bought an extra mag. for my Ruger 22/45 MkIII. I guess all in all I did ok for the 2 hrs. I was their.

    As if that's the only Mexican place in Pasadena.

    Mamacita's is the the only really good Mexican place that's close to the Pasadena Convention Center, that I know of. Where do you like to go?

    I do Mamacita's pretty often myself but the Border Cantina and Grill across the street is even better. I crave their crawfish enchiladas. They pour a real heavy gravy with little mudbugs in it over a couple of enchiladas and I swear I can live on them and not eat anything else.

    But Saturday I grabbed up the bride and hit Mely's on NASA Parkway. At 10:55am you have your choice of a Mexican breakfast or lunch menu. May I suggest the beef fajita nachos! Enough chunks of chargrilled beef to satisfy even the most heart-broken gun owner.

    Darn, now I'm hungry again. :tongueout:
