Thanks for your support.

As less and less people patronize the few dealers we have trying to make it in this Gulag... We will have LESS and LESS dealers in this Gulag to support US. Encouraging less and less participation in Maryland gun shows will do for the anti gunners exactly what they want... WITHOUT them having to get involved.

So, we are supposed to support beek jerky, fudge and t shirt vendors? Plenty of people on this forum uphold free market principles when someone pays a high price for an item. The free market also dictates that those who can not or will not adapt their business model to work in changing times are free to fail. If you don't have what customers want, they simply take their business elsewhere. That is just the way things are in life.

Did I say that?

Let me go back and check...

nope... not there...

But I DID say something about supporting our local dealers who DID pay the cost to set up a table there... Some of which are our own members and IPs. AND ... MSI... Bought a nice challenge coin from them while I was there... to support OUR cause.

But... don't worry about it... continue to disparage the shows and discourage attendance... And as the anti gun cancer spreads... we will continue to have to drive further and further away to other states as shows close to us begin to shut down due to lack of support.

Then... folks can get on here and lament the old days when they could just drive to a local show... and the state still HAD FFL dealers.

Guess what I saw at the Timonium Show... Of all things... A Jerky salesman bought a GUN

Never said you said that.

I'm glad the jerky salesman bought a gun! Probably needs it to protect all the money people spent buying jerky when they didn't find what they wanted at the gun dealer's tables.

No one says you have to buy t-shirts, jerky and other stuff. The admission fee establishes the attendance. Buying only from the actual 'hard' vendors will indicate those types of vendors are what the show needs. Additionally, without sufficient sales the other stuff vendors will disappear. But...I always buy beef jerky at the gun shows...part of the experience.
