Yep those two almost always have the same June dates. I'll be setup at the ABBA in Mobile. The ABBA shows are always good.

Yep, spend $14 on admission fees and who knows how much in fuel at $3.85 per gallon driving 240+ miles round trip -- just to see a bunch of guys wearing camo -- dodging guys in power chairs -- just to look at over-priced firearms, cheap knives, airsoft, stun guns, and beef jerky...

You'd do better buying & selling on the internet.

Default Ab-so-toot-lie !!

scubapro, Your post(#7) is absolutely the right'est on post that I have read in a long while.

The only one that I go to anymore is the one in Robertsdale. The P'cola fairgrounds show(and others) are also filled with Jay's MSRP or higher stuff that I don't even take a second look at. I never go to a show expecting "yard sale" prices,but most are as high OR HIGHER than at the shop that they came from.

Used to love the shows.....not any more !! --- SAWMAN

The "deals" at gun shows are made walking the floor and in the parking lot. That hasn't changed in decades. At the Mobile shows there are usually a good number of private individuals with tables. Some are crazy... used guns priced at or over new gun prices and some have good prices.

But still, I've never gotten a "deal" off of a "dealers" table anywhere and I've been going to shows for almost 40yrs.

I've bought hundreds of guns over the years off the floor or outside at good prices.

4yrs ago I bought 4 "nice" rifles from a lady in the parking lot as she struggled to get them out of her car..... seems the old man had been caught cheating but he didn't know it yet... she waited for him to go "out of town on business" and sold everything he had. Hundred bucks each on the rifles that I eventually turned into about 2K

That was a good day at the gun show.
