I'm curious what the turnout was for MSI. This is the first Chantilly show since the bills were introduced.

For veteran MSI gun show folks, did more people approach the booth than normal?

It was heavier than normal Saturday afternoon. Just not as heavy as I would have liked.

Have more joined in general? Combined in person and online. I know I just did. Do you know what the membership numbers are? I haven't seen them anywhere.

A guy walked into my office this morning and said “I joined MSI at the gun show this weekend.” I said that’s fantastic, who did you talk to at the booth. He said I can’t remember but it was D something D something.
Thank you for working this weekend!

Speaking from experience after working a few of these shows I felt that we had a lot more interest than normal. A lot more folks were throwing donations in the can and not just dollar bills! folks were coming by with questions about a lot of the new legislation and were totally shocked when we would point out some of the repercussions that could happen if they were passed. I noticed a significant uptic in people renewing memberships and first timers also! People realise this legislation will impact their lives, and not in a good way.
. Pleasure to be able to do my small contribution to our effort. Thank your co-worker for joining please from me.

I've worked the Chantilly show maybe a dozen times; never seen so much action. I think we signed up 26 people on Sunday alone.

Decent show, but you could tell a few vendors decided to post at the other shows going on, and not at Chantilly. Still picked up a new ACOG TA31-CH at an amazing price, even got the kill-flash for it. Also scored the new Surefire M600U (1000 lumens) for $200. Good haul this round.
