    I wonder if the Navy Yard shooting will have any impact on attendance or prices. So far I'm not sensing the anti-gun hysteria that we got after Sandy Hook. I still expect ammo to be too high. We'll see.

    Gander Mountain at Hwy. 151/IH410 in SA had loads of ammo yesterday (17th) around lunchtime...didn't see any panic buying. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I'll probably go. Going to the show is cheaper than going to the range. Last Saxet show I went to was lightly attended.

    All those folks that loaded up during the panic just in case there was a ban, they're broke and Christmas is coming.

    Plus, the great majority of them are people who normally wouldn't have bought an AR/AK style weapon on a regular day. That being so, those same people are not going to jump back in and buy more of the same less then a year later.

    I'll be going. I feel like at this show I can usually find something interesting to me. Unlike most of the other ones.

    What's this Christmas thing? I see it all over the various boards.

    I don't save money for Christmas. Bah humbug.

    If they want a gift, they will have to bust their A$$, just like I do for ammo.

    So far the Washington Navy Yard has had ZERO effect on gun and ammo demand. (The demented shooter was not a white guy).

    A local gun shop suckered a radio station news department to air his opinion ... "gun sales are up by 40% this week already, and ammo has completely dried up."

    That fellow was just trying to drum up more business, but sure was stupid saying he could sell you a gun with no ammo.

    Last show wasn't very good, that said, I'll probably go and try to pick up something cool from individuals walking around selling stuff.. that, and the really nice ammo can guy are about the only draw to that show anymore. just my .02
