    This was definately a great show. There was a pawn shop there that was clearing out a bunch of their guns so you could get some killer deals from them. They had a Ruger P95 for $200, an XD .40 for $300, a bunch of Mossberg 500s for $120 and Remington 870s for $150 just to name a few things. I ended up getting an almost brand new Marlin 30-30 lever action for $200 from them. I also picked up a Double Star lower for $227 after tax. I got a new shirt, too. Here are some pics.

    We went to the show in Houston yesterday. I was disappointed. One vendor I know had 2, maybe 3 Gemtech cans, other than that, I didn't see any Class 3 at all.

    I didn't see any class 3 either but I wasn't really looking for it. I did see a Thompson but I didn't ask if it was class 3. No one had any cans.

    I got it for my dad. His birthday is in a few days. I'm tempted to just get him a card and keep it for myself, though :mamoru:.

    I wish there were actually deals at our gunshows. Oh and indoors + airconditioning while we're at it.

    call me stupid but wtf does that shirt mean? im not really comprehending the meaning behind it.

    and good haul arty. no shows around here have shit. or maybe im just too impatient to look for the diamond in the rough deal.

    The shirt is ironic. As for finding the deals I usually check every table. It's not that hard to find the guys who have good prices.
