    I thought this was going to be another beef jerky and civil war relic complain thread. Glad to see you got some good stuff :)

    I hate guns shows because all they have become are huge shitty pawn shops.​

    lol true. Some of the ones that have been in my town are nothing but small vendors trying to get rid of some random stuff. Also an increasing number of airsoft vendors and the shitty parents letting their kids run around touching everything.

    8 bucks to walk around a shitty warehouse full of shit I wouldn't take for free.

    I'm not going to any more. Gunbroker ftw.

    we're in a rural area, and the vendors come from tulsa and okc... they bring a wide varity of stuff, and some prices are surprisingly low... others are rape you in the ass, with a chainsaw prices.

    the tables with knives were surrounding the one table with airsoft, and other toys... the kids that go to this one are pretty well behaved, unlike some shows in bigger cities i've been to.

    the gunshow that comes here is super lame. a bunch of used guns for prices rediculously close to new-in-box prices... And a bunch of reloads that I wouldn't trust.

    We usually go just to laugh at the shenanigans the booth owners try to pull.

    sportsmans warehouse has an excellent jerky selection without having to deal with the gun-show crowd/parking/vendors.

    The last gun show I went to was at the Orlando, FL. fair grounds. Every other small group of people was done up in gang clothing. Needless to say, it wasnt very comforting. Oh yeah, nazi crap is always fun to see too. NOT!

    :hsugh:


    Best place I've ever found Nazi memorabilia at was an antique mall in New Philly. They had a BUNCH of military stuff from WWII, including an SS officer's dagger, and an infantryman's shovel with the Eagle Swastika stamped into the handle.


    They had a TON of Nazi stuff, and it was almost more expensive than the American memorabilia was.


    Then again, they also had a non-working tank shell for 300 bucks :p

    I still find them a fun way to spend a couple an hours. I will probably go to Tanner next Saturday.

    I do agree the prices are crazy, especially on ammo, but every now & then you find a deal.
