    Wasnt much of any deals there. Was looking at a Chinese SKS. Stock and magazine didnt match. 90%. He wanted $240 and wouldnt budge.

    For some reason there were alot more homos selling necklaces and grabage than usual.

    Bought a case of 720 .223 Radway Green with stripper clips and bandoleeers for $145
    Bought an M7 bayonet for $25
    3 CProduct 30 round AR magazines for $30
    2 20 Round AR Hartford CT magazines each for $12
    2 50 Round boxes of 7.62 25 Sellier and Bellot for $21

    I went to one today, too. I just bought a shitload of ammo. The local shows always have a couple of guys selling it cheap. They didn't really have any great deals on guns but there were some accessories that I was really tempted to buy.

    Same here. There is always this one guy that sets up with about 6 folding tabkes full of ammo. He had Israeli made stuff for 17 a round but I went around to look for better deals. Came back and they were sold out of the cases of it. So I bought the radway

    I always look for the old guy with a bunch of mismatched boxes in a box on the end of his table. I just ignore the prices and make them offers. Usually they take them.

    Not a bad price on the radway at all. Doesn't sound like a bunch of excitement though, went to the range today myself and got rid of some ammo :big grin:

    i went to the gunshow today too....prices on guns were alright...there was an independent AR15 builder located in orlando selling M4 rifles for 850 w/ a really good quality desert tan MOLLE rifle case included. My girlfriends dad bought one for 900 out the door.
    I bought a stripped AR lower for 105 out the door. Its marked as Spikes Tactical LLC (the same company that made the rifle i mentioned above) and it has a silkscreen "punisher" logo on the right side of the receiver. The finish and machining quality is excellent. I originally wanted a Mega lower but couldnt find a single one at the show. The lower i bought was made by LAR who i was told also makes the lowers for Bushmaster.
    My LAR lower looks better quality than the one i got on my bushy though...
    I also got a russian-made picatinny rail scope mount for my AK. Planning on mounting an Eotech soon.
    Total amount spent for both items came to 150 dollars :)

    You guys must have better gun shows than we do, I could never find a damn thing, so I quit going. Most of the dealers at ours are from local stores, so why should I pay $8 admission when I can go to their store for free? The gun prices are always insane, even on used. Most of the knives are usually junk, the benchmades and spyderco's they do have are expensive, I can usually order them from NewGraham for a lot less. A lot of the ammo looks like it's been sitting on someones shelf in a basement for 5+ years. Lets not forget the losers selling jerky and beanie babies. :hsugh:

    The days of the good gun shows are pretty much over.

    are you sure the punisher logo is laser engraved? Its white on the black anodized background. I ran my finger across it and its not "into" the metal its just flush on the surface. did he tell you the logos were laser engraved?
    Oh btw, i dunno if you met spike when you bought it but hes just another one of those middle aged overweight tacticool ranger wannabes. He makes a good product but he seems like if u spoke to him long enough hed be another gunshow douche.

    He said it was laser engraved. I talked to him for a little bit when I got it, he was a pretty nice guy. My brother and I drove down to Apopka from Jacksonville to pick up the lower. He was pretty nice and really good with communication.
