Last time I went to this show was in 2011. Wasnít sure what to expect, but it seemed like a decent show.

Mix of modern stuff, tacticool, antiques, and hunting. Several huge dealers. No too many jerky/pickle/jewelry/crap sellers.

Many accessory dealers seemed aware that the internet exists and priced accordingly. Some still have no clue, probably similar to the % of buyers who donít realize a dealer at a gun show canít sell a gun to them for the same price they see online, and cover fees, taxe, etc.

Got my Glock magazines - $35 for 33rd, $25 for 17rd, both FDE.

Lots of PMAGs for $9-10 (Gen2), $13 (Gen3) and $14-15 (Gen3 Window).

Not many H&K parts. I did get a used A2 stock for $30 for my SBR stretching project.

Kinda wanted a $99 ATI Nomad single shot, but didnít buy one.

Met & spoke with the guys at Maryland Shall Issue.

Anybody find an amazing deal?

Are the ammo guys at the back of hall still there? They had a good deal on 147gr 9mm HSTs, comparable to online prices (about 40cents per).

I saw at least two dealers with 147gr HSTs, but donít recall a price. Both verse in the main aisles, not the back.

So being an NRA member will help the line wait time. Is this true? If so....i guess that would not help me. I am a member but my wife is not.

If you renew or join at the show you get free admission and donít have to wait in line because you have a ticket to enter. Sign her up and renew yours for another year and you walk in. My buddy is at least 5 years ahead in paying for his renewals.

By joining the NRA or renewing your membership, you get into the show for free and you get to skip the ticket line.
Your NRA receipt, servers as your ticket.

I've been an NRA life member for over 30 years. You may think that would count for something, but I get to wait in line, and pay the entrance fee, just like everybody else.

Don't wear hats, they make you go bald. Just look, almost every guy that wears a ball cap is bald. I don't know why the medical profession does not warn people of that hazard.
