    It was a high caliber... but it wasn't bad at all actually.... This time it was taking up 2 halls at the George R Brown instead of just one like the las few I've been too... They had some good deals, just not on stuff I was looking for...

    I went for an RRA flat top 16" upper... Found a few stag's and some RRA's modified flat top (with the sight post at the back, I don't like it) but no crazy deals so I just ended up getting 3 new AR mags w/ Magpul followers for 12$ each.... Guess I'll be ordering my upper from Legal Transfers when I get back from Vegas in a week.

    I went this afternoon, it wasn't too bad. I asked one dealer if his 16" midlength RRA upper was chromed. "No it ain't, you don't need it unless you're building a machine gun." Thanks pops, I don't build plinkers :rolleyes:

    LOL... Retarded. It appears the one thing that is USUALLY in short supply at a gun show is vendor knowledge.

    UTE2 upper or somesuch? I never understood the point of that one save for co-witnessing the iron sights with a dot scope... something that most folks seem to prefer to do with a flip-up BUIS anyway.

    I am ditching my flip up BUIS for fixed. That's one less movement to fuck up if the optic fails.
