    The Premier gun show found a new venue in Bastrop. Is anyone going this weekend?

    I'm gonna go check it out. If they got a Colt Cobra for sale might pick one up.

    I went. It was ok, but kind of small. There was only 1 or 2 dealers with sizeable tables. There was one with a Cobra and I ended up buying it.

    Really crowded, there's definitely a market for gun shows in the Austin area. But the venue was pretty much full to capacity, dunno if they can cram more dealers into the place or not.

    Small show is better than no shows.

    Thought about going but the schedule was a little tight to justify the drive to Bastrop.

    Apparently there is another one in Dripping Springs this weekend. Any idea whether that venue is bigger or smaller than Bastrop?

    We used to go to the Lake Bastrop Club to watch the Cedar Hackers fight back in the 70s. Is that close to where the gun show is being staged. They played good beer drinking music over there . It just took somebody to figger out who was against who sometimes

    Word is the venue in Dripping Springs is even smaller than Bastrop.

    Whoever the knucklehead is that put a bullet hole in the wall at Cedar Park and got the show kicked out of that giant convention center should be skinned alive.

    If they did, that's the first I've heard of it. I was in there the morning the gun shot went off in the big hall, everyone stopped whatever they were doing and started looking in the direction the sound came from. Did someone get hit by it?
