    I've bought ammo at the gun shows, but TBH, the prices weren't that great. I bought a few boxes of Magtech 9mm FMJ at the last one I went to and the prices were decent, but not great by any stretch. I just saw it and needed a few boxes and was there. And I bought it in the show and walked around with it. No cordoned off area or anything.

    Best bet, as others have mentioned, is looking online for the ammo deals. Check out ammoseek.com.

    You in the Killeen/Belton/Temple/Ft Hood area? That is the only place where I've ever seen ammo in a separate area of the gun show. In SA, there are ammo vendors at the SAXET show; but as folks have stated, lugging large boxes of the stuff out of the show can be a pain...

    Weird. Never seen such a thing. Not in Texas, not in Colorado.

    Ammo is prohibited at the Big Town gun show in Mesquite.

    Since when? I've bought lots of ammo there.

    I always wear a big backpack in to haul my stuff around in. But I wait until its time to go to buy bulk packs.

    Dallas Reloaders, which has been to almost every Mesquite show I've been to has good prices on 223 SPs.

    The ammo dealers are mixed in with every one else, and never together.

    Was about to say the exact same thing. I've bought ammo there and at the FW show. Been a few years at Mesquite and maybe this is something new.

    It has been a few years since I have been there. If I remember correctly it was a city ordinance that prohibited ammo there.

    I guess that I should get up to date before commenting.

    I think they forgot to tell the vendors at the last show there. Lots of ammo to be had
