    it sucked!!! prices were outrageous. someguy wanted bolt and carrirer group for an ar for 185 bucks (140ish on EE). an a2 upper for 160 (110 on EE). not one vendor there selled complete uppers. even the guys who sold the ar lowers receivers.

    but they had some pretty good deals on ammo there. people were buy them buy the boxes. hell, they had american eagle boat tail ammo going 3.20 for 20. will go to gunshows now just to buy ammo and cleaning supplies.

    no upper yet. :crying: im just gonna be patient on EE

    Yep, just go for the ammo, get there early before all the good stuff is sold out. Any one selling actual guns thinks they have gold.

    sometimes it's hit or miss at shows. Some shows around here are full of crap. others are really good. When you go into a show and half or it is knives, airsoft, and cheap tools you don't tend to go back very soon. RK shows is starting to be disappointing.

    There are deals to be had. You just have to dig through mountains of overpriced crap to find them :dunno:

    I usually go for ammo. Cheapest place to get .35 rem around here. Plus they have some cool stuff every now and then. Damn good jerky too.
