This! Had at least 2 vendors there. One in the smaller hall near the rear pass thru door had a wider selection and better prices. The gentleman who ran it is a USN vet and a real nice guy to chat with

Well they adjourned after 2 hours and accomplished nothing except some grandstanding so everything is safe until they reconvene.

Might be shopping for a Mini-14 Ranch with synthetic stock and stainless steel.

ugh - other than a stop at Dogfish Head and some quality time with one of my buddies, what a waste of time this show was.

These dealers are acting as if their stock is the last they are ever going to get on their overpriced magazines and ammo.

Literally the only awesome deal was on some .45ACP Golden Sabre at 2/$25. the rest was as high or higher than what I could have delivered to my door.

It's as if they enjoy taking it home with them.

I now realize why it's been many years since I've bothered with a gun show. There is literally no intrinsic value in going.

Thanks for saving me 32 bucks. I was going to head over tomorrow, guess i'll be hitting the lake instead!

I went. Agreed it was generally not very appealing. But while the mag prices weren’t special, they were available. And if you’re from across the Potomac where that’s a problem, it’s a solution. A couple of recent stops on NoVa LGS had nothing to offer me, so the show is the way. A way, anyway. A few bucks one way or the other isn’t much compared to the time and hassle that are the only other (often unproductive) approach. Otherwise, yeah, not a very compelling visit. But I did get to drop some cash in the MSI litigation bucket, which was gratifying and they didn’t have to pay credit card fees on it.

I went with a couple of friends...for an industry allegedly in a slump since Hillary lost you'd think prices would be down to move merchandis. Nope...when plain Jane rack grade M1 Garands and Carbines and 1903 rifles of various makes with replacement barrels are all over $1k and up...they're priced to keep...not sell. This a bad trend.
